SOURCE: passed 25 mph emission test
When was your last tune up? I mean new plugs wires and distributer cap. have you had the throttle body cleaned if not that will need to be done as well. The cleaning is not hard or expensive but it cleans all the build up off the throttle body. Catylytic converter may also be plugged. What I would do before your test is to run the car, get it good and hot and run it down the highway while holding the gas pedal to the floor several times to get the old carbon burnt out of the exhaust system, this old carbon in the system can cause high PPM readings for the hydrocarbons. Which simply means your engine is either not getting hot enough to keep the build up cleaned out, or your not burning fuel effeciantly causing a build up. If your getting no trouble codes or lights then the chances of an electrical system malfunction are minimal. There is also the possiblity that your engine needs some valve work done if the fuel is not getting burnt properly but if you get it good and hot and run all the old carbon out of the system you have a good chance at passing the test.
