ok, a couple of things. with both the hc and co high, i would install a new o2 sensor. i would also change the oil and filter. that will increase your nox reading. i hate to say this but the cat is going to have to be replaced as well. it cannot process the gases and break them down.

hi mastertech about my 1993 honda accord not passin smog could the intake control soleniod valve be a problem from not producing enough air

this will effect the mixture going tinto the cylinders for the perfect 14.7 to 1 air fuel ratio. it will not change the fact that the cat is worn out.
