You would only need a CARB # if you had any aftermarket emission, or air intake system replaced on your vehicle. If you do have an aftermarket air intake or any other emission parts installed, remove them and return the engine to only all original stock parts, and you will not have a problem with needing a CARB #.

If you want to keep the aftermarket parts, you will have to see The California Air Resource Board and let them give you a certification number.

I hope that this information was in any way helpful to you.

My 1996 honda accord lx did not pass smog due to

these codes indicate there is a miss fire on cylinders 1 and 2 hence the 0301 and 0302 code the 1300 just indicates multiple engine miss fires. so anything that can cause these cylinders to miss fire need to be attended to in order to fix your problem.

Can the belt that runs the smog pump be bypassed

I do not think so since I believe that there is no smog pump. On mine (LX) one belt goes to the power steering (which can be removed if you want to steer without power assist) and the other goes to the water pump and alternator. When I bought my car it was this way, and I have passed several emission tests as is.

Does a 1987 Honda Accord LX have a check engine light on the dashboard panel?

Check engine light must come on with all other lights. It's called a bulb check. So either the bulb has burned out or the previous owner disconnected it.

No any codes will let you fail..Rangers are bad about the valve sticking..But first look on th driverside very back on the intake..Youll see a valve with two vacuum lines The one that goes on the bottom of the valve makes a 90 bend and is bad about breaking..If the lines are good then work the valve by hand and see if it will move

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".
