My 96 maxima wont pass emissions in az after replacing 02sensor and knock i need to drive it to reset comp?

I would say 10 to 20 miles would be enough to tell if the trouble codes will return. You may be able to disconnect the battery for a couple of hours to clear the codes, but using a scanner or code reader is better.
A scanner or code reader can find history trouble codes on some models and in some cases without the engine light being on.
The purpose of the warning light is to tell the driver the vehicle needs attention now.

Hi my check engine light is on and it wont pass inspection, gave it a tune up. I was told at the time i was tryin to get an inspection that the timimg belt was bad, took it for second opinion and i was...

hi what part of the inspections? emissions? normally if you have the engine light on and you have high emissions, this is normally due to a bad o2 sensor, but that's just a guess, you will be better off getting the code read on a diagnostic's machine to find out what the error is, the belt can and can not have things to do with it, if the timing was out that would have an effect but if the vehicle is running ok then i very much doubt that will be anything to do with it but like i said if timing is out it will...hope this helps

My 2004 Envoy check engine light stays on. I am told by the GM dealer that I need a secondary air pump and emission valve, cost about $825. Is it necessary to make these repairs and will anything be harmed...

Your gas mileage will suffer and if your state requires an annual emission inspection, you will not pass. There is also a possibility that your catalytic converter's life will be shortened because of improper combustion. Ask the dealer if these component are covered under the emissions warranty.

Engine lite on, after i had the emmisions done

The check engine light is definately an emission control issue. Assuming that the light is not flashing. What all did they do at the emission place? I know down here in Tucson, AZ they pull the gas cap off and check to see if it holds pressure, if they dont put it back on properly it will turn on the check engine light. The check engine light can come on for hundreds of reasons. Your best bet is to run down to an Auto Zone and have them run a free scan on the code. Once this is donw write back with the code and I will decipher it for you.
