    Is there a check engine light on? If not or there isn't any severe leak in the exhaust you may need a new Catalytic Converter

Will an engine bought from a 1999 Silverado originally sold outside of California pass California emissions


There are two type of emission classes.

Federal and California emissions.

Look under the hood for the emission class sticker.
Smog check station's machine in CA are programmed to handle both types.

You do not need to change anything before the inspection.

==== Side notes: You should check the service record for the last Catalytic converter,O2 sensors and EGR valve change.
Service interval for
Catalytic ~180,000 miles O2 ~150,000 miles EGR ~160,000 miles


If you can locate the last smog test (even from out of state) Check for the
CO NOx

A good fuel system cleaning and tune up will probably have you sailing through inspection. RE Cal state laws, you need to contact DOT (that law changes daily)

SMOG TEST


If it was originally intended for Texas, it's probably been made as a 49-state-compliant vehicle (CA has stricter emissions). To pass in CA, you may need some new parts for the truck in order to get it to pass. Or you may find that the best course of action is to sell the truck and buy a CA-emissions car.

The CA DMV may well have information available on how to get non-CA-compliant cars to pass the CA emissions testing.
