    95 ford ranger xlt pickup four cylinder. Keeps failing evap pressure test. put new fuel pump and new filler tube. I found that the line from the canister was off so i put it back on. So, that should do it....NOT! still failed. They want an arm and a leg to smoke test and fix it. Anyone have ideas to help me fix it or what else it can be?

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?

No prblems with my car it runs strong like a champ no chek engine lite n nothin wrong with it performance n the way it runs but it will not pass smog.. It passed all sections of the test excEpt the section...

A good fuel system cleaning and tune up will probably have you sailing through inspection. RE Cal state laws, you need to contact DOT (that law changes daily)

No the water pump will not affect the smog test. You probably failed the idle?
Usually with this age of vehicle you can replace the o2 (oxygen) sensor and it will pass. Cleaning the MAF if it has one cant hurt either if you do it right.
