Smog not passing

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi All,  I live in CA. Recently I took my 2004 Honda Accord into for smog.  Everything passed except for other emissions-related components/systems.  What the problem was a small hole in the air intake tube.  So, of course, I went to buy the part and replaced it.  After that, I took it back into the smog shop, and it continues not to pass because now it is OBII monitor not ready, which continues to read Catalyst monitoring & Evaporative system monitoring incomplete or not prepared.  At that point, I figure to take it out for a drive, and I have been clocking in 30 to 40 miles every day.  Different road conditions from the freeway, stop & go, and lower mph area to see if that will work.  Even now, as I been checking almost every day with my OBII, it still shows the same error.  


Can anyone give me insight into what I am doing wrong?  

I have even dumped a bottle of that stuff that says guarantee to pass smog, and it still does not help.  

Do I need to drive it over 200 miles straight to make it work?

Thank you fo
