Before I got for an emissions test I do several things. Change the oil and oil filter. Change the air filter. Spray Throttle Body cleaner into the Throttle body where the throttle plate is. Put a high quality injector cleaner into the fuel and run most of it out then refill the gas tank to full. If it still does not pass, I generally change the oxygen sensor. The works for many cars. Last case scenario: run the car until it is good and hot. Put one bottle of rubbing alcohol in a whole tank of gas and try to pass again. If you do not like that idea, Auto Zone sells a can of stuff that costs $11 and is guaranteed to help you pass the emission test.

2006 hyundai elantra obd won't communicate with smog check station


Just to clear things up, having the monitors ready has nothing do to with OBD Communications. Ready or not, it will communicate. The original issue here was a station with a bad scanner. she did the right thing trying somewhere else and following up to get her $ back.

2007 tail light fuse location honda crv


I had this problem with my 2007 Honda CRV -- all the lights worked EXCEPT the tail/running lights and the license plate light. The other tail lights worked -- brake, reverse, indicators, and hazards. Front headlights also worked, but when the headlights went on the back tail lights did not (not to safe for driving at night!!)
The fuse was #15 in the interior fuse box (under the dash driver side) with the label "small exterior lights" ( also check fuse #19 labeled "small lights main"). The cause of my problem, I believe, is a bad or lose wire in my license plate light.

My car won't pass smog because the engine light won't go off. Is that possible? What does the engine have to do with smog? It's a 2002 Corolla


Smog is what comes out of the tail pipe. Have the engine checked out as to why the light is on, and have it fixed. .
