the basic premise of the star system is to get you to get rid of your old car and lease a brand new car.

if it is not as successful as planned there is legislation being readied to make all model year 2000 and older cars illegal to own in Comradeifornia. they will be labeled as gross polluters

I passed mine no problems after i bought it, its a 93 SE coupe all stock, never checked it before the smog and still passed, the guy told me the start its just an extra test they do in the hoses in your engine bay for pressure and stuff

According to my paperwork my car failed 12 times since it's tags in 2012. I found out my cat was trashed ... Pulled it from my white accord and it passed a little high but within the limits I just ran chevron, new oil , new nkg plugs and done deal. Good luck

Clean your egr valve, make sure your catalytic converter is in working condition, drive around for a while before going to test so that the cat is warmed up and working efficiently.

Also, make sure you don't have any cels.

It's a shame were on the opposite side of the country I have basically brand new headers and a flex pipe sitting in my shed. With a gasket. You could've had them.

They will also pressurize the fuel lines looking for leaks.
So replace your gas cap if it is old and check the tubes leading to the charcoal canister for leaks.
Ideally you'd also check the tube from the gas tank, but those are harder to pre-emptively fix.
