Either reset the computer or get a diagnostic scan to find the problem. the check engine light on doesn't mean it won't pass inspection

2004 porsche cayenne i reset computer and now it will not start


Clearing Codes, clears all data, then all the emission
monitors have to run again, or you won't be excepted
to inspection

Clearing codes & data,has nothing to do with diagnosing
why you got the fault codes & fixing the problems

How would clearing a dash light help pass inspection?

Before you got down the street two houses, the light would
be back,the car has a failed system ,thus the light on the
dash after the motor is started.

You cleared all data,now a shop can't even work on it
You removed all vehicle history & codes

Flat bed it to a shop & they will make the repairs you neglected
to do, while trying to get hundred miles before the parameters
on a failed system went out of range & the dash light came back

Need to study OBD 2 Systems on the internet & leave the vehicle
work to the pros

Failed emissions test


First step is to have the code or codes read.If the "check engine light" is on there will be a reason and should be a code or codes to be read.Once you have the codes,you can determine the correction needed to get that "check engine light" out and a valid emissions test completed.Get back to us with the codes found.

I have a 1994 chevrolet k1500 running SUPER rich


Have your temperature sending unit checked to be sure the computer is taking it out of cold start mode. Most likely it is not working and still dumping too much fuel into the engine and causing the high reading. Think about what I just said, makes sense doesn't it.

When I cold start my car there's a fan that kicks in for a couple min. Well it has got louder lately so I looked under the hood and there is a part about the size of a grapefruit at the bottom front part...


That noise is the secondary air pump (an emissions device) and it appears to be failing. If you have emissions checks in your state inspection, when it fails completely you'll end up with two codes and a check engine light and will not pass inspection. I assume you hear this only on cold start, correct? If so, then it's your secondary air pump.

Check Engine Light came on 2 miles after State Motor Vehicle Inspection. What about the inspection process could cause this?


They should not need to disconnect anything on a 2001 to run any emission equipment test. The only thing they remove is the gas cap (to check it for leaks). Did they fail to put the gas cap back on straight?

Your engine is still running rich, inspect all your vacuum lines and your fuel pressure regulator. A bad fuel pressure regulator can cause your engine to run rich and is there any check engine light on???

Failed smog cause check engine light


I can tell you for sure that all US models of the Ford Ranger came with a emission system that incorporated a MIL or check eng light, go to the dealer and have them run your VIN on the Ford on line information service, that will give you the engine Calibration of the emission system, you can then find out what emission system was used, export or US.
