I had an engine check code of P0440 and using a scan tool cleared it but now Im not able to get these monitors ready for the smog test. It has been over 90 degrees for weeks. (Las Vegas)

    Thanks for your reply!! My car is a 2001 and has less than 48K miles. I replaced the battery awhile ago but thats about it. Drives fine....so I am not anticipating any repairs. Can you pay a shop to do the drive cycles? I have cleared a check engine light myself...after the battery problem. The code was regarding fuel 0440 and I believe that was due to not putting the gas cap back on correctly. I am starting to worry that my best car ever could turn into a big problem with me.
