The system has to see a wide range of conditions before a smog test can be done. On most brands you have to drive at least 50 miles, at various speeds including stop and go, let it idle for 5 - 10 minutes, and run at freeway speed for at least 25 miles. It also has to reach normal operating temp of 195 degrees.

Check the ports if there is any carbon,I doubt it,
but you got to look
I would make sure you don't have overheating issues
That is the cause of NOX (High Combustion Temp)
Check fuel pressure
Use synthetic oil in engine
Check PCV Hoses etc

Having a problem passing a smog test on 1996 Toyota 4Runner SR5 V


NOX is produced when cylinder temperatures exceed 2500 deg. The systems in place to reduce NOX are EGR and the catalytic converter.
If the number is only slightly higher than avg then I would suggest the EGR, make sure that any vacuum lines are attached and that the diaphragm moves freely, be sure not to damage the rubber inside the EGR.
Retake smog test, if numbers still out of range replace the cat.

if this vehicle is driven in the city almost exclusively, take it out on the freeway a good 30-40 miles prior to taking it back to the smog shop. that should prime all the readiness sensors. make sure your doing some speed and not just going 55 in the slow lane. get the system nice and hot.
