Anyone can pass smog very easily, I thought I actually posted this but I'll repeat for the late comers.

If you have to pass a visual, you're on your own. Thats got nothing to do with emissions.

To pass the smog test perform the following steps:

Get the gas tank almost empty, under a 1/4 of a tank

Add two gallons of denatured alcohol from Ace Hardware, Lowes or Home Depot

Proceed directly to smog station and take the test

Recieve pass certificate

Alcohol does not burn hydrocarbons, so you effectively fool the sniffer every time. I've done this on 4 vehicles now, none of which had cats. Well atleast a cat with anything inside it My 240 had over double the stock injector size controlled by a SAFC and I passed easily.

If the car has to be shutoff, you will have a little trouble starting it. It will start mind you, but not on the first crank, it will take 4-5 seconds. This is because the spark energy isn't enough to light off the alcohol mixture. Running the alcohol will not damage your motor or the sensors. Just proceed to the gas station after you pass and fill up with regular.

If that doesn't work, make a new thread or ask me on AIM or Email. I have other methods to try.

i am very interested in this. i have two cars that need it done. my only concern is the fact that ca still requires cng/lpg vehicles under 14000lbs to be smogged every other year, how are you getting around this?

hey haxw8st...

i was wondering if you or anyone else could tell me roughly how long it would take for my car's computer to re-apply codes after i delete them with a code reader. to make a long story short my car runs clean enough but i cant get my CEL to turn off, and im flat broke after trying to fix the issue.

OBD I is a diagnostic system that simply looks for opens or shorts. It doesn't run rationality or functional tests like OBD II does. And OBD I doesnt have drive cycles.

If you clear that light and smog it, it can come on during the test. Definitely not worth clearing it, so I would find a way to repair the problem.

Can anyone give hazw8st's e-mail or a way to contact him, I see that he hasn't posted in a while. I just failed smog and wanted some tips on a stock single cam so I can pass.
