Won't pass smog when it should...


Just because the car seems to run well, does not mean the emissions are within spec. For example, you could be running a little rich and the car will start and run great, but the exhaust is not within code.
What you can do is take it to a "smog shop", that is a repair shop with the proper equipment to diagnose the problem. If the testing is simply the reading of the on board computer codes, then most any place can read those, but you need an experinced mech to know what to do about it. May need an exhaust gas analyzer to physically sample and analyse the gasses. For the actual test, as long as the computer says all is fine, usually, you're good to go.
If the computer looses power any saved run data will be lost and must be re-accumulated to pass the smog test. A few hours to a day is usually enough run time to accumulate enough data.

How to make a 95accord vtec work in a 90 accord


That is easy! You don't. Even if you get it to work, you will never pass SMOG, so it would be a worthless car because without a SMOG test with "passed" on it. You have a fancy fully functioning car that you cannot drive (leaglly).

For example, I have a customer that Frankensteined his Jeep, and although it works awesome, it cannot pass smog; so it is a lost cause. It works great, but it cannot be smogged.

These cars have different settings both in design and computer settings. Your smog test might keep you from enjoying your success in making your "Frankenstein".

What does my 77 gmc K20 need to pass CA smog


As far as I know. Anything 1994 and under don't have to go through emissions anymore, just safety. But, like countrysi248 said, it might depend on what state you live in. Best wishes to ya.

Need list of fault codes for deawoo lanos 1999


Not a solution: This is my problem...
I needed to get my car smogged, but the check engine light was on. Took to to a local smog station that had replaced a sensor for me in the past in order to pass smog. They could not fix it. Put car in dealership garage for repairs and to date, the transmission module sensor (computer) went out and the ignition sensor was out also. The mechanic replaced both and now the code P1702 comes up. What does that code mean? My car still won't pass smog....
