Drive it some more. Has the battery been disconnected/replaced recently? The Inspection station should be able to print you out a drive cycle to get the monitors ready also.

Reason for failing emmision hc ppm idle on a 1996 chevy suburban 454 truck


First of all, HC (Hydrocarbon) are the residue of petroleum based product combustion. If your HC reading are higher than the OBD2 legal limit (220 ppm), the most common causes could be a leaking fuel injector, abnormal oil consumption, a faulty Oxygen sensor or worn out spark plug / distributor cap / spark plug wire. To be honest, I would need more accurate details such as NOx ppm, CO ppm, CO2 ppm and Oxygen ppm and if there is any repair that have been made on the car recently to give a proper diagnostic.

Warm regards

After changing oil on 2006 jeep liberty 2x4 thats whlights en esp bas started coming on how could changing the oil cause this

co relationships, don't always prove causation.
i can change my oil with no disturbing any electronics, did you ?
are you in 4wd or 2wd,? yours is 2wd only car. sure.

did you read the operators guide in the glove box, on ESP.
The ESP can come on , for normal things.
here is an example.
i'm driving, my jeep, (2008) out of a parking lot and 1 tire hits some
gravel and the tire wants to SPIN.
so ESP kicks in and saves my life (LOL) the lamp flashed telling me
"hey buddy, watch that gravel stuff"
Started coming on, what does that mean.
its stuck on, or glows steady now, or glows full time driving ? on hard dry pavement in 2wd.?
did you read your operators guide first , in the glove box.
did you lose it.
here it is , down load it and keep it forever.

read the ESP sections.
if ESP is unhappy, get the car scanned,
scan it and see if there are DTC errors related to ABS, EPS, etc.

EPS uses many forces (controls) to stop skids.
it uses brakes, engine and transmission.
if you wish more information on how it works read the FSM>
then ask questions.

I have a Mercedes vito 115 cdi 2007 . the ESP symbol light has come on the dashboard when im driving , when I turn the van off and re start the engine its off .but when I drive off after a few minutes its...

means there is a fault some were. could also be abs fault not reading one of the wheels moving would set it off. check the sensors are clear on the wheels. no need to jack up just look under and you will see. if there is a lot of rust build up on the cog it can give a false reading and set it off. failing that you would need to have the codes read. but what you are saying it sounds more like a failing sensor not reading.

02 sensor not ready,catalyst not ready

The catalyst is able to oxidize hydrocarbons (unburnt fuel) at about 600 degrees. The air injection pump routes fresh air straight to thecat to aid in speeding up the light off time. once there, the cat stays warm enough to oxidize at all times. The oxygen sensors have heater circuits built in (4 wire vs. the earlier 2 wire O2 sensors, this is why they're referred to as HO2S; Heated O2 Sensors) As for the term "Not Ready" this applies to one of the monitors run by the PCM the Emissions Monitor. EGR flow, O2 sensor operation, catalyst temp are all monitored by the PCM so it can decide whether it will run in Open Loop (ignoring O2 sensor inputs) or Closed Loop (adjusting fuel trim by reading the O2 Sensor input) To change a monitor status from "Not Ready" to "Ready" is as simple as driving as per TRIP guidelines. Once a TRIP is completed (a TRIP is an acronym don't remember what it is right now, but a TRIP is different than a drive cycle) then monitors will have completed and be "ready" unless there is a problem in which a DTC will be stored along with freeze frame data (Mode 6) and if enough key cycles for the individual code (Some are instantaneous, some are 3 key cycles, some are 5, and some are successive key cycles), then a MIL or Check Engine Light will turn on as well.
Hope this helps

High HYDROCARBONS on emissions test. I have took my 97 Cabrio to emissions test and failed due to High Hydrocarbons. but states the Catalytic converter is fine. what eles could cause high HC levels?

first thing to do is change the air filter. even if it appears clean, the airflow can be blocked enough to affect the petrol air ratios in the engine which will give high HC readings.
changing the spark plugs can give a cleaner spark, and better ignition, with lower HCs. high HCs could also be caused by traces of oil getting through worn piston rings and valve stem seals and burning in the combustion chamber. there are many oil additives that can help stop this and reduce HC levels as well.
hope these suggestions help

What does No ppm mean?failed e-test

Here is some info for you to read, besides me explaining what ppm is, i also gave you some info of how to solve this, Ain't that special LOL. Mike

Overall Result: PASS or FAIL. A vehicle with a properly operating engine and catalytic converter will have very low HC and CO readings. However as a vehicle ages the HC and CO emissions will increase and may become erratic. As a vehicle ages it becomes increasingly important to be sure that the engine and converter are fully warmed up before the test to have the best chance of passing the test.

HC (PPM): The parts per million of hydrocarbons (unburned or partially burnt gasoline) in the exhaust.

CO (%): The percentage of the exhaust that is carbon monoxide (CO).

CO +CO2 (%): Complete combustion in the engine or catalytic converter will result in very little carbon monoxide (CO) and a high percentage (up to about 16%) of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the exhaust.

O2 (%): When there is complete combustion in the engine or catalytic converter there is a very little oxygen (O2) in the exhaust. Usually less than one percent. A higher reading indicates a problem with the engine, the exhaust system, the sampling system or the catalytic converter. Vehicles do not pass or fail because of the O2 reading; it is only diagnostic information.

RPM: The engine speed in revolutions per minute (RPM) or N/A.

Cruise Limit: The maximum allowable HC and CO emissions at 2500 rpm. The CO+CO2 (%) must equal or exceed 6. This verifies an adequate sample of the exhaust has been obtained. N/A for O2 and RPM.

Cruise Emissions: The emission readings measured at 2500 rpm.

Cruise Result: PASS, FAIL or N/A.

Idle Limit: The maximum allowable HC or CO emissions at idle. The CO+ CO2 (%) must equal or exceed 6. This verifies an adequate sample of the exhaust has been obtained. N/A for O2 and RPM.

These are the possible problems:

bad o2 sensor
bad EGR valve
bad cat
bad timing
dirty injectors
bad plugs or wires
the less costly fixes include replacement of the o2 sensor and EGR valve i would not clean the EGR I would buy a new one there are very cheap you can pick these up at any local parts store .
also run some injector cleaner through your car at least a full tank of gas and one bottle of injector cleaner should be ran through.
you can also have your timing checked for a relatively low price.
and when you go into to have the vehicle checked make sure the car is been running because your cat convertor has to be warm in order to preform at it peak so do not do it when the car is cold.
all of the above are pretty reasonable fixes the general rule of thumb when you work on your own vehicle is start with the cheapest fix first then go on to the next.

I failed my smog, the guy said it was a gross polluter. and that it gives out to much emission from the exhaust. how do i fix that

That would all depend on which readings it failed on.high Co's would be fuel related(running to rich),oxygen sensor failing,dirty air filter,fuel drenched engine oil,failing catylitic convertor, timing incorrectly set,incorrect valve lash settings,High hydrocarbons would be spark related(misfire,poor cap and rptor,bad spark plugs,plug wires. does it have visable smoke at exhaust? one of the main causes of failure is if car all in all runs great,no check engine light,no reason why you should think it should fail is that vehicle was not warmed up enough prior to emmisions test ran beleave it or need to take car out on highway drive it hard for 10 miles or so make sure catylitic convertor is fully heated up and car is out of warm up stage and then take to do test.alot of times people fail to do this and take there car at lunch etc to testing station down street where you then jump out and car sometime can sit for 20-30 minutes before test ran, which leaves car still in the warm up stage,running rich until fully warmed up which is to late once car is testing mode.vehicle made need nothing except to be nice and hot,and people leave testing place thinking that it needs costly repairs and in reaLITY does not

How do I download a Word 97 Document on Floppy Disc to Windows Vista Word Document?

Hi. If I understand correctly, you want to be able to read a word 97 document (and edit it as well, maybe) in Vista Word? If that is what you are asking, open Vista Word and go to file > open, then find the floppy drive in the selection window. Find the document on the floppy and click on it and select open (or just double click it). If it is scrambled or does not open and you get a warming window that reads something like "cannot open file..." or or "cannot read file...) then you may have to download an add on from the Microsoft site. It is an add on that allows Vista to convert MS Word files so it can read them. I must say though, it really should be able to read it as is. Then save it in the native file format of Vista Word. Hopefully this helps.
