Not Passing Smog (Ca)

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

Just join the forum. I have a 92 Lexus SC400 and have smog issue. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

This is what I have done to try resolved the smog issue:

Install all the spark plugs NGK - Spark Plug Part Number: 3764Iridium IXDOHC Per Car Quantity: 8Gap @ .0441.

Install New PCV Valve

Cleaned air idle control

Cleaned throttle body

Did an oil & air filter changed

New Cat

2 New Oxygen Sensor (upstream)

Other minor issue.

No illumination on the idle needles

Heater turn on, it blows but no heat

TRAC Control light is constant on.

Aside from the issues, the car ran awesome.

Eh cannot really think of much else that could cause you to not pass the smog. Course I live in TX, i know we are no where near as strict as yall are there. The needles in these cars just go bad man, along with the display for the AC, mine just doesnt light up nemore, and i have no needles cept for maybe a random flicker every now and then. Mine doesnt have trac control, so cant help you there either. Heater? check fuses, simple things first. Hope that helps a little

what did you actually fail for. there is three part to the smog check. the visual,the functional, and the emission. if you would post a copy of your test result maybe i can help.
