The system has to see a wide range of conditions before a smog test can be done. On most brands you have to drive at least 50 miles, at various speeds including stop and go, let it idle for 5 - 10 minutes, and run at freeway speed for at least 25 miles. It also has to reach normal operating temp of 195 degrees.

Service engine light on-won't pass smog test


You will need to plug in a OBD reader first and run a diagnostic check. Without this we can only guess at what may or may not be wrong with it.

CEL P0431 but passed smog emissions in CA - how can I pass emissions if the CAT is damaged? Could it be another issue?


Maybe not your answer, but it is related: Before going to have your car smogged, check your gas cap. Check the condition of the gasket, or o-ring, inside the gas cap. If is already drying out, full of cracks, get a new one. It will not pass the visual inspection. The smog technician, salesman, will try to sell you a new one for $15 when you could get it for $8 at your local auto-parts store. The technician will tell you that if you do not get it right there and then, he will have to fail your car on the visual test and you will have to comeback to have your car re-smogged again.
The cap might still be doing an OK job of sealing the tank, but it won't pass the Visual, especially if the tech wants to sell you a cap. You can tell if the cap is doing its job if you hear a hissing sound whenever you open the gas cap after running the engine fro a while. If it is not providing a good seal, then you might get a check engine light with a code about a failure in the evaporative system.
Just a little thing to check before you go and put yourself at the mercy of the smog tech.
For $15 you could get a locking gas cap, which might be a necessity now with gasoline prices being what they are, now.

My 97 Sonoma will not pass smog


You & we need to know what it failed for

What Emission Gas & what are your State limits
& what did your vehicle read?

You can study exhaust gases on the internet & see
what area of the vehicle needs work based on the gas
readings

Have to educate yourself

Do not wait for someone to tell you things

You won't learn or remember if you don't
study on your own or don't start a binder &
take notes & copy web site info,punch the holes
& put in the binder

Then you take your info out to the car & make the
tests & fix things

I HAVE A 99 ALERO OLDS.4CYL.& IT WON'T PASS SMOG


IF DECELERATION FUEL REDUCTION SYSTEM IS NOT OPERATING, FUEL ECONOMY WILL BE REDUCED WHILE HC AND CO EMISSIONS ARE INCREASD.SEE ON MANY ENGINES WITH DECELERATION FUEL REDUCTION SYSTEMS THE PCM STOPS GROUNDING THE INJECTORS IN A SPECIFIC RPM, DURING DECELERATION.

I just bought a 93 jeep cherokee...it won't pass smog, smog test says its running to rich at idle. How can I get it to pass smog?


Could be lots of things.
It could have a leaky injector that is dripping all the time.
You can pull the injectors while still on the fuel lines, to see.
You could have bad compression and burning oil.
You need to do a compression test to tell.
You could have a bad plug or wire.
They are cheap to so just change them.
The fuel injection system could be off.
Check the temp sensor, air mass sensor, O2 sensor, with an ohmmeter.
Don't remember the values, but bad ones usually go 0 or infinite.
