Ok I bought this 1992 Toyota Camry 4 cylinder automatic 2.2L the lady I had bought it from had it smog in October of 2011.It had Failed Cause fuel cap,missing vacuum lines to sensor/switches ignition timing:B16 and system malfunction light every thing else passed including G pol. Now I'm in the process of transferring the car to me. DMV says to fix the repairs that were required on the smog she had done, the repairs were timing,fuel cap,Vac line missing from air intake boot and M/C- Lamp On. I took care of the repairs took it to a test only center as required.the over all results were failed cause Exceeded the Gross Poullter Limits. Now what I'm wondering when she had got it smog I was looking at the ASM Emission Test Results.on where the CO(%) there are three boxes one with Max, and so on ok where it says MEASURE it shows a reading of 0.26 and under that it reads 0.17 and the area of Gpol it shows pass with reading 554 /511 177/155 and meas reads 0296/0052 pass pass Now for the reason I'm asking by detail is on my It shows fail ignition timing:B19 and for G Pol. Now on where it shows CO(%) the Max reads 0.52/0.43 the same as her smog and hers it shows( Ave )with reading 0.19/0.14 and for (Meas) on hers it shows 0.26/0.17. Well the Meas reading on my smog read 0.00/0.00. Which means if I'm correct it could be a bad fuel filter,fuel pump could be going bad I'm not mechicanaly knowlagable sorry for sounding a little blunt to whom my help me with my question and last the G Pol reading shows on hers (Max)554/511)(Ave) 177/155) And( Meas) hers reads 0296/0052 with results Pass/Pass ok now my results (Max)of 554/511(GP)of1992/1792 And (Meas) of 4037/3834 results for my smog Fail G Pol/ G Pol. So some one said I should start with the EGR valve would some one help me with this problem so I can have it retest and pass the inspection . Thank you sign zmagnum31.
