My 2002 grand am se it will not pass inspection ,there is no ckeck engine on .my 025 not ready

You did not give enough information about what you did not pass on emissions. Usually it is the co2. If that is the case, it is either the sensors at the catalytic convertor need replacing, or the catalytic converter itself. You can get sensors at the wrecking yard but NOT catalytic converters.

Code 420 will not pass emmisions

Google the code

PO420 is a failed exhaust converter

Always check all data & do other preventative
maintenance items, before you go to inspection

Can't go, if all computer monitors are not clear,
or any codes are there

camshaft sensor is going to be the sensor going to the head. and the crankshaft sensor is most likely around the area where the transmission and engine meet. if not then it would be around the area of the crankshaft pulley. the biggest pulley on your car.

My 2001 pontiac grand am is cutting off while in drive. It hesitates when I'm accelerating on inclines and the service engine light is on and the trac off lights comes on when it is hesistating.

Go to Autozone and let them check the SES light with their scanner, it's free. May be a faulty MAP Sensor. Don't just buy the sensor if they tell you a certain sensor is out. You need to locate the sensor and check if there is a vacuum hose attached to it. If there is, inspect it for rot/holes first.
GM is notorious for using sub-standard rubber vacuum hoses. They literally will disintegrate in your hand after 7-10 years.
