Any number of things!!! It could be as simple as doing an oil change and a tune up. It could be your catalylic converter(s). It could even be a computer problem.

What kind of car? Do you have a CEL? What codes?

Good luck!

CEL = Check Engine Light ;) Sorry!

So did you already take the car for an inspection and it failed? But they didn't look it over and give you a reason? You're just looking for some possiblities first, right?

OK, has it passed smog since you got that cat last year? Any other exhaust troubles? How's your air filter? Was that replaced recently?

Sorry if these are dumb questions, but I'm just shooting darts! :biggrin:

Cheers,
Jeff

Change your oil right before you go, you may have bad O2 sensors also...

the hotter the engine the better the chance of it passing. if you are still worried about it when you take it back make sure you have driven it for a while right before you take it in. did they give you a print out? what were you to high on?
