no country! (smog laws and vacuum vary by country and
what engine is there. (over 10 engines) a
if in USA , not canada. the hood sticker by law shows
the fact. (open hood, look under and UP) bingo.!
(shows vacuum but not for transmissions using vacuum nor the vacuum to the brake booster.)
just engine vacuum, as that makes smog. if wrong.
we cant guess engine we cant guess country vacuum varies by engine and smog laws. and do you need all vacuum hoses. even for the brake booster or transmission? if fitted. alldata.com has it, why not just log in and read.? but its only for USA cars,
i need 2 things displacement and if V6, is it single cam or twin (dohc) or sohc engine.
YOU CANT TURN OFF PCM WHEN IT SPOT A PROBLEM.YOU HAVE TO FIX PROBLEM.BECAUSE THE CHECK ENGINE WILL STAY ON UNTIL PROBLEM FIX. ITS AGAINST THE LAW TO TAMPER WITH EMISSIONS SYSTEM.BECAUSE OF SMOG AND POLLUTION LAWS..HAVE TRUCK SCAN TO SEE WHAT YOUR PCM CODE IS.COULD BE SOMETHING MINOR.
I had the same problem, then took my car to an expert repair shop who diagnosed the sensors and
found no problem with the car. They notified the DMV who was unaware of the problem, who then told the repair shop (John's Bascom Automotive) that they will adjust their computer system to allow a "two speed idle test". My bill was $95 and I still have to pay for a smog test after driving around for
a couple of days to clear the computer monitors, a fair amount and I gladly paid it.
John advised me that I'd get no satisfaction with Toyota or the DMV. I went to the dealership where I
bought the car and they said that the smog stations don't know what they're doing. They charge
about $100 and work around the P0500 code but it takes them about two hours to do this. I told
them that I should have been notified about the dyno none-compatability by Toyota and that Toyota
should have notified the DMV beforehand. I wonder how many speed sensors are being replaced by
unknowing smog shops around the state. I got Toyota's main customer support phone number and
will call them Monday. I'm going to get my pound of flesh ($95 worth) from the DMV next week also.
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.
