Answer 1
There is an adjustment for the ignition timing, and if this not within the specification noted by the manufacturer, you will fail the smog check. On the 3.0L V6 (3VZ-FE engine) the specification is 10 degrees BTDC. If you look on the printout, it should note the actual reading they measured. You are best taking this to a shop that is a licensed smog test and repair shop. -
