To pass smog aagin in 2012

(1990 Toyota Camry)

What is my chance of passing again in 2012, say if the DMV does not lower the limit?

Will a new catalyic converter help?

The car runs well.

It failed 15 mph HC first, at about 100. Then the guy at teh station did a carbon clean. A liquid was sucked into the engine where the brake pneumonic drim booster
