Question about 2001 Dodge Stratus
In Calif the "smog test only" place I went to said it failed the first time, they let it sit and cool down (I'd been driving it some earlier), and it passed. Apparently a cooler engine helps.

O2 sensors can become contaminated instantaneously after being replaced if you have an antifreeze leak or oil leak into your cylinders.
Or, if there is a leak in the exhaust system upstream, this can cause the o2 sensors to sense too much oxygen and give out of specification readings, even though, they would be good in a sealed exhaust system or a car without an antifreeze or oil leak into the exhaust.
How are the fluid levels behaving in your car? (i.e. coolant and oil).
