88 Ford F250, 5.0v8,fuel-inj. OBD1, EEC-IV Still failing CA smog. Tech says too much hydrocarbon &"It has a 'Lean' misfire too much O2. New Cats, front & rear, Single Exhaust, New plugs, & wires


Have you checked oxygen sensor operation and readings? A faulty o2 sensor can cause these issues. It may be sending an improper reading to the computer resulting in wrong air/fuel mixtures

Why can't I pass smog check engine light won't come on


The smog check requires a visual inspection of your check engine light. It has to come on for a bulb check at startup to make sure it's working. But, the light must go out after starting the engine(it cannot stay on after the engine starts during a smog check). If the check engine light fails either of these two tests, the vehicle will fail the smog check inspection.
You need to have the cause of your inoperative check engine light diagnosed and repaired.

CEL P0431 but passed smog emissions in CA - how can I pass emissions if the CAT is damaged? Could it be another issue?


Maybe not your answer, but it is related: Before going to have your car smogged, check your gas cap. Check the condition of the gasket, or o-ring, inside the gas cap. If is already drying out, full of cracks, get a new one. It will not pass the visual inspection. The smog technician, salesman, will try to sell you a new one for $15 when you could get it for $8 at your local auto-parts store. The technician will tell you that if you do not get it right there and then, he will have to fail your car on the visual test and you will have to comeback to have your car re-smogged again.
The cap might still be doing an OK job of sealing the tank, but it won't pass the Visual, especially if the tech wants to sell you a cap. You can tell if the cap is doing its job if you hear a hissing sound whenever you open the gas cap after running the engine fro a while. If it is not providing a good seal, then you might get a check engine light with a code about a failure in the evaporative system.
Just a little thing to check before you go and put yourself at the mercy of the smog tech.
For $15 you could get a locking gas cap, which might be a necessity now with gasoline prices being what they are, now.

PCV valve failed visual inspection during smog test, but the car passed physical smog test. How to replace 2002 Ford Escape PCV valve assembly?


remove the hose to the PCV and It simply pulls out and a new one is pushed in and hose is inserted back on. It's kind of like a cork. I can not believe they check for visual inspection. Here in SC, we don't have inspections. But anyways, GOOD LUCK

Have a 1989 f250 5.8 that didnt pass smog the guy told me its running rich the report said the HCdidnt pass just by a few numbers everthing else passed so i put plugs cap wires o2 sensor and a new brake...


Would double check your firing order on your cap.If running worse almost positive some wires were crossed.The spark plug firing order is ( 1 - 3 - 7 - 2 - 6 - 5 - 4 - 8 ) and runs counterclockwise on the distributor cap.

I need to know what smog equipment the 1976 ford F250 had on it to pass the Ca smog requirements


None. Yes I said it right, None. Belive it or not in 1976 trucks were not required converters, air pumps and could run on leaded or unleaded gas. Man I've been doing this too long and I'm getting old.
