SOURCE: check engine light/2003 toyota CE

have you had a diagnostic code check? if not i'd start there. it sounds like it might be a oygen sensor, but before spending money on it, it really should have a diagnostic test to tell you exactly whats causing the problem.

SOURCE: won't go over 15mph

Is your check engine light on? It may be your catalytic converter is clogged, if it seems to idle ok, but no power, and also your rpm's would sound different while reving it up past 3,000. Also have someone stand behind you at the tailpipe while reving it, and see if the flow seems restricted. Does it smell like rotten eggs, or a weird sulpher smell? If you live by an auto zone or advance auto they offer a free OBD 2 scann to read your check engine light.

How to fix asm emission test failure hc( ppm) max 61 gp 274 meas 690 at 15 mph, at 25 mph max 36 gp 224 meas 804


this is easy,, it can be 1 or 2 problems.

1: CAT is dead or weak, new cats can in fact hide a crappy engine.

2: bad engine. runs like junk and does not burn all its fuel.



any good shop can find this is minutes.

what I DO (no 5gas mach)

i check for (scan tool costing me $9 whole bucks) ask)

i check for closed loop status, idling

if ok then at 15mph and then 25mph , just racing motor in neutral.

if all 3 tests pass, im good.

if any fail, i fix that. bad fueling, bad spark or whatever.



if all 3 pass, its NEW CAT TIME



easy huh? a binary answer.

bad cat, bad motor. (or both)



when i say bad motor that means,every inch of the EFI/engine system.

every drop.

2000 excursion its been choking out at 3000 rpms and gets worse to the point that you can only go 15 mph it has died on me twice but starts right up but


throttle position sensor has failed on the throttle body. you now need to change the full throttle try on ebay. but get your codes to confirm it has failed.

I failed Emissions Test: 15mph: HC - (max 66) 150


go to autozone and have them look and the check engine light and that will help you figure it out. they should also give you a piece of paper that will tell you what is wrong take that to an auto mechanic and ask his opinion

2004 Sebring failed the emissions testing


Probably not a cheap fix.
The car will not pass the test if the light is on during the test.
The light is on when the computer has a problem that will affect emissions or performance.
You would need to have the computer scanned for trouble codes then fix the problem. Once the problem is fixed and the code is erased, the light should stay off.

I have a 93' Ford Taurus that failed emissions


run the fault codes to find the faulty sensor
sensors that control the exhaust emissions are the HO2S ( heated oxygen sensors in the exhaust manifold/s
the O2 sensor ( oxygen sensors after the cat converters ) and the EGR unit that recycles exhaust gas back through the engine to re-burn the gasses

Wont go passed 20 mph


Check for a clogged or broken catylitic converter. Since you didn't mention the check engine light or any other symptoms, that's where I would start.

I pass every test for smog except for the emissions (HC) part. The limits are 120 at 15mph and 95 at 25 mph. I'm at 155 and 160. I've replaced the catalytic converter, entire exhaust from tail pipe to...


Has anyone tried adjusting the fuel air mixture?

Based on what I am reading this is a gas engine and I am also assuming it is fuel injected. (Or does it have throttle body fuel injection?)

I suspect a case of dirty fuel injectors at the moment. They will need to be removed and cleaned.

If you have throttle body fuel injection then you will need the fuel air mixture adjusted.

If you respond can you let us know the "engine size" that is installed please. It would help us to help you in troubleshooting.

Thanks for using Fixya. Kelly.

2000 nissan maxima, pass Connecticut Emissions test


catalytic converter is the way to fix your problem because they do an emissions test and the code want go away even if you get the light off before you take it in they will no the computer has just been reset so which means all the sensors want have enough info to give the computer because of being reset sorry to break it to you.

2000 Saturn SL2 fails smog due to failure of OBD Self test


Some vehicles require very specific drive cycles (called "drive traces" if you perform them on a road simulator or dyno) to activate certain self-checks like the catalyst and EVAP monitors. As a general rule, doing some stop-and-go driving around town at speeds up to about 30 mph followed by five to seven minutes of steady 55 mph highway speed driving will usually set most or all of the monitors. Consequently, if you're checking an OBD II system and discover that one or more of the monitors have not run, it may be necessary to test drive the vehicle to set the remaining monitors.

You should talk to a good emission tec, if this is not throwing a code, it is hard to say if that one of the components could be bad. O2,pump,convert, HeO2, every part of the emission system.

With a 1000 miles, and doing what is says above just before the test, and ending driving at the test
should be plenty. If it is not, you will have to have each emission part checked, or when the computer
is plugged in it might show a code that did not trip dash light.
