Question about 1995 Jaguar XJ6

1 Answer

Just failed smog with slightly high HC. the item that looks like a dstributor has a large rang of adjustment and looks like it can be adjusted. Keep in mind this is a 1996 jag xj6 with a crank trigger ign. no plug wires cause each plug has its own coil. is the timeing adjustable? I suspect advanced Ign timeing cause of high HC

The car you have is the jag x300 series the main probs with this car are the lambda sensors and/ or the catalysts and you will get high emissions. to help sort this out you need someone with ids or wds software to help to check the fault codes or monitor the live data the ign timing is controlled by the ecu lower rh A post! its not adjustable

If the car started and then stopped and if you have ruled out the fuel system(make sure you do have fuel pressure and your not chasing your tail) then it could be one of 2 items.
First i would replace the cap and rotor, I have had cars that ran fine then died and after replacing the cap and rotor have been perfect.
the other common issue with this model is water in the gas. The fuel filler drain gets clogged which allows water in teh gas tank, when the car sits it seems the mixture will allow the car to run then boom, it will die and not restart.

If the brake lines and fluid is clear then you may have to look at the brake booster found at the other end of the brake pedal under the hood...

Naw, not really odd. That usually happens when there is a bad batt ground connection. Remove and clean the battery cables, pay close atention to the negative cable. snug them down and make sure the post is not broken where the bolt goes if it is a side terminal battery. Good Luck_Ned_

1983 Ford Ecoline 150 /6cyl. Failed smog/ Egr numbers were too high How can i fix this to pass smog


Other than testing the EGR valve, not many options. You really need a 4 gas analyzer to know what is coming out of the tailpipe. Otherwise you won't know if repairs have helped the problem.
When you say EGR numbers I'm not sure what you mean. Most of the time the test is for CO and HC gases, along with oxygen and Nox also in some areas. The EGR valve allows some exhaust gas to be recycled thru the engine and reburned. CO or HC could be high if the EGR system is not working.

Why does my car **** and hesitate and has failed smog 2X is now a gross polluter ?


Because you failed to have a shop look at the data
& make the required repairs & get caught up on preventative
maintenance BEFORE you went to inspection

If you were in fact at a shop, for any reason,then they have no idea
how to test vehicle

Have you considered the motor is shot & you have leaking valves?

About the only thing you can do is take it to a qualified DEQ specialist and have them take a look at it. It might be something as simple as a hose, or not.

Fail smog test


fist i would like you to post the year make and model of the truck along with the HC ppms and NOX ppm it would be very helpful but high hc and nox can be attributed to a faulty EGR system nox is produced when the combustion chamber temperature gets too high so a small amount of exhaust is cycled back into the air stream to help cool them there are other causes but without looking at the levels its much harder to say

Need 92 toyota paseo to pass CA smog test ! What causes too high HC in smog test????


High HC means moisture in the system. Try driving it longer then take it to the smog shop. Otherwise it could be hard like a head gasket or easy such as a PCV not functioning. Any ways you should always drive it about 20 miles before smog check, longer when the weather is cold.

2.3 dohc wont pass smog


Did you do a full tune up?
Do a compression test and check for any cyclinder that is low in PSI.
Look of wet plug and oil coated plug(s).
== Which item CO,NOx,Hc is failing?
You may need to repose to add information.
Use a plug non-fouler / protector on the weak cylinder will help if HC is just shy from the passing limit.

Failed smog


We had to have the calatic converter replaced. We did this after doing an oil change, air filter change, and new spark plugs and still hadn't passed smog. After changing the calatic converter it passed smog with scores of 25.

High hc


you may need replace the catalytic converter, but 1st do this, clean the throttle body and idle airbypass valve, change the oil before the retest as well, get it as hot as you can before the test, hold it at a high idle prior to the test, this may squeak you by, as a 20 year smog tech these are the thing I did, if all else fails do the cat conv.
