clean the EGR (if it's got one), put in a new cat and new oxygen sensor(s)... change the oil, oil filter and air filter too, that will usually get them to pass the smog test.... also, maybe put the idle at the max end of the spec..

make sure it is HOT when you take it to the smog dude.


Another quality post.

Did all that Rusty, though it has no EGR.
I priced a cat and it is $260 installed. Not so nice when you sell the car for $1,500

A universal converter is less than $100..........but you have to weld it in.
An "Exact-Fit" type (direct bolt-in, no mods) is $50-$75 more.
A new cat won't do much for NOX, does wonders if you have high HC's.......
Also, new cat's need to be "burned-in" about 50-100 miles before they work at peak efficiency (sp?).
Good Luck smile

I talked to my Honda mechanic and he will have to look at it Thursday. I just hope I won't lose this buyer. I am not going to spend that kinda money blind unless I know it will fix it.
He says NOX is hard to figure out because he doesn't have the same equipment they do.

Ah, even in the smog-Nazi counties here in Missouri you can get away with anything. My '77 Corvette has none of the factory emissions equipment and a very non-conforming exhaust, and it still passes the "treadmill" test without a problem. grin They can give a visual inspection (not supposed to pass without required equipment), but they only do it if you have repeated failures.

You might as well fix it if you are wanting to sell it and be thru with it,,,

Tony, could you cut a deal with the buyer to lower the selling price if he agrees to do the repairs at his expense? Or maybe you can't even sign off on the car before it passes. Another reason I left the Golden State. But those beaches are smoke free zones. Gotta love it!

This guy is smart. He made the passing of the smog a contingency of the sale. I had it up for sale without getting the smog first hoping someone would just buy it without asking.
