How To Pass Inspection & Complete A Drive Cycle

Оценок: 932 | Просмотров: 483952
http://BigNate84.com - In this video I'll show you how to complete a drive cycle inorder to pass inspection after turing off your check engine light. There are 8 monitors that register the performance of of the vehicle. Once the check engine light is cleared these 8 monitors need time to conduct an accurate reading. If you have a Code Scout 700 http://amzn.to/Nnwvot you can get a reading that tells you how many monitors are ready and how many are incomplete. All 8 monitors need to be in a "ready" status before you can pass inspection.

I believe the driving cycle is to sell gasoline, other mechanic requirements is to sell auto parts. Clean air is to plug in cat converter to the exhaust pipe like many countries are doing. The law was given to me before I could understand and was able to vote. Glad new generation is smart to switch to electric vehicles.

Jon-Christian Kaczor (8 дней назад)
Not really accurate at all. Just because catalyst and eval don't set does not mean that you haven't completed a drive cycle it means you haven't met the pack's pre-set conditions in which it complete a cat and eval test which are the hardest to set especially on general motors vehicles. There is a way to force set 7 out of 8 monitors and if you want all 8 then you force set and then bomb down the threat in 2nd gear and get the converter almost what seams melting hot and it'll set. I've driven some vehicles for a week 80 miles to and 80 back from work and still didn't set the cat and evap moniters until I force set them

Did this clown just tell me nothing in a highly technical way? what the hell. tell me how to complete the cycle not how to tell if the cycle is completed. nut.

I think it may be vehicle specific. But on my 2004 Yukon Denali I have to drive it 30 to 35 minutes for the check engine light to come back on. I've learned this by doing it five separate times while I was trying to clear codes for a bad oxygen sensor which I did. And then after I replace that it told me I had a catalytic converter issue. So yesterday morning I used cataclean and it varies it says drive your vehicle 15 minutes or up to 50 miles. So I drove 45 minutes out of Denver and I did the reset on my computer. And I've driven more than 3 hours since then and no check engine light. I will be going to try my emissions again Monday.

I've got two Dodge Caravans, and I don't drive them often. Even with a battery "maintenance" charger on it, the battery will go dead enough to make the ECU lose its memory if you don't drive the car for a few weeks. There is NO "drive cycle" that will reset the Cat or the O2 sensors, other than driving the car around for several HUNDRED miles! I've been through this three times now, and it takes forever. This is totally stupid, but it's the world we live in today.

I am curious if u ever found any alternative solutions ?
Christina Faye (4 месяца назад)
Also if you clear a check engine light and you complete a drive cycle your check engine light comes back on at the end of the drive cycle. So your video says you can pass it but you still got to complete a drive cycle. How tho if the check engine light comes on after you complete a drive cycle???
Christina Faye (4 месяца назад)
went to take an emissions test and I failed due to monitors on my drive cycle saying "not ready". I needed a tune-up and that's why it was doing that. Well I have a machine that I can test all this on and all week all my monitors have been saying "ready". Well this morning I go to run another test just to ensure I'm going to pass inspection this morning and now all of my monitors are saying "ready"except for my cat. Now I know you're allowed one monitor to say "not ready". however my question is can my cat say "not ready" as long as my other ones are saying "ready" and will I pass that way??? Also why after repairing the car and all my monitors have said "ready" for a week but now on the day I am going to inspection now everything is saying "ready" expect for the cat??? It makes no sense.
Yourteamsucks (6 месяцев назад)
If you car is a 2000 or older you can have up to 2 monitors not ready and 2001 and newer 1 monitor not ready.You don’t have to have all of them ready.I passes with 2 if mine not ready.

The drive cycle can be done within 20 miles, or less. Start cold. Drive 40-55mph for at least 5 minutes and COAST to 20 mph, WITHOUT brakes--(this can be dangerous so find a good spot on a highway with WIDE shoulders or find a rest stop with LONG entrances. The slower you go the less distance you need to come down to 20 mph) Stop and Idle 10 seconds, turn off engine for one minute. Restart car and drive over 40-55 mph for two minutes, and come down to 20 mph with normal use of brakes. Idle ten seconds. Turn off engine for one minute. Restart and Test ECU with scanner.

Wait your Explanation of How to Complete a Drive Cycle is "Keep Driving" Holy Shit great advice...
Michael Guilas (8 месяцев назад)
The easiest way to pass the smog test you need to clean your catalytic converters and intake system with water if still didn't pass replace your sensors for sure you are not going to drive a million miles to complete the driving cycle. I buy and sell use cars and it works for me everytime.

Oh, now I understand. You're the first person to recognize Margaretsville as an actual town in NY! I used to go fishing and deer hunting with my pop and brother back in the 70s up near Margaretsville and Arkville. My pop had a cabin on what I remember as "Dry Brook Road". And the fishing in Lake papackton was awesome----amazing brook trout. Anyway, when I started up my youtube channel I used the Margaretsville name cause it reminded me of the good times I had when I was a kid. Anyway, nice talking to you, hope you get a deer this season!

Okay I just got my inspection sticker rejected my truck is 2000 Chevrolet it has 39,405 miles on the failure is p0300 Random; Multiple Cylinder Misfire Detected ! This is the First time in 17 years that my truck failed
Turbo Diesel (7 месяцев назад)
The 1999-2006 Silverados were known to have multiple cylinder misfire codes a lot. Effin' junk. My grandfather had a 2000 Silverado 1500 with the 4.3L V-6. Friends of mine had the 5.3L V-8's in their trucks. For all intents and purpose, they all ran fine. We saw plenty of them roll through the shop, back in the day. (They still show up on rare occasion, but most folks either find a way around the CEL for inspection or give up and junk their old truck altogether.) Pretty sure that was the ultimate plan of the EPA and the manufacturers all along - force people to keep buying new vehicles. Anyhow, pretty much all of the GM trucks had frequent random misfire codes accompanied by the CEL on in the dash. It got to be where we cleared the codes once a year and were able to drive the truck through a drive cycle and immediately got it to the inspection station to get a sticker. Some time later, the CEL typically came back on. Those POS trucks had frequent issues with random multiple misfires. I actually fixed my gramps truck, but it took me forever and a lot of parts were needlessly replaced after many, many hours spent, and endless frustration. I wish to god I had documented the time, money and actual solution. Unfortunately, I never did. We sold the truck several years later after I had properly fixed it. Thinking back, I'm almost certain it was a strange electrical issue that was easily overlooked, but alas, I honestly don't remember. Luckily for me, I plan to never own another truck like that, so I guess I don't really care.

If the vehicle passed emission test, you should be good to go. Where is the law that says if computer's having some glitch, you need to spend lots of money trying to fix it? How were they able to pass this kind bogus requirement?
Krystle Garsha (10 месяцев назад)
I totally agree and I think they hire people to find new ways to make it difficult. If you don't pay to resolve it, then your license may expire and now you'll have to add late fees to the DMV.

The ABS light is not a failure in N.Y.S. the shop is required to notify you of the light but they are not supposed to fail you for it. I'm a licensed inspector.

I have a 2003 Toyota matrix. The check engine is been on for a few months, i already changed the oxygen sensor and clean up the mass flow sensor, it did nor passed the smog. OBDII monitors shows " Not Ready" catalyst, evaporative system and oxygen sensor heater appears now. What can i do now? I already spent around $200 dls
raul robles (1 год назад)
don't some states let you pass the emissions with just 1 incomplete cars 2001 and newer?

not necessarily your allowed the evap monitor to be incomplete in other states

teckniec2 (2 года назад)
Hello, I moved to a state with emission inspections and had my car tested and failed because my monitors were disabled. When I scanned I am showing N/A under several monitors. I have been trying to get help on how to turn them on but people just keep confusing my issue with drive cycles needing to be complete. I don' know if you know anything about this. I bought the car used and can't find any information on what could cause this.
MARC MARIEN (1 год назад)
mrt18bbaia is right.  The NA means that perimeter is not one that your car uses, you only have to worry about the ones that show incomplete or inc, not ready, on some scanners., A lot of states will allow you to have one incomplete, and still pass the emissions part of the inspection.
mrt187bbia (1 год назад)
na means not active. your car doesn't have that specific emissions component. like your car wouldn't have a smog pump.
teckniec2 (2 года назад)
Its a nissan 350z. After taking it to the dealership the tech was just as baffled as I was, even more so because the nissan scanner shows everything as normal, even an 02 sensor that was missing was displaying fluctuations in voltage. The emissions or third party tools wont show anything. It looks like I need a new ECU, not really sure what the previous owner had done. Thanks for responding though.
BigNate84 (2 года назад)
I've never heard of monitors being disabled before, are you driving a VW or something? They got caught doing some screwy things.
Jerry Gonzales (2 года назад)
have a Ford F-150 the check engine light was on they told me it was a catalytic converter Bank 1 I had all 4 catalytic converters replaced it did take the check engine light off however no codes came up and it will not pass inspection because it has a iNC indicating that the Catalyst monitor is not ready how do you reset the catalyst monitors
BigNate84 (2 года назад)
The only thing I know to do is drive the car and put some miles on it until all monitors register as "ready"
tgarcia247 (2 года назад)
Big Nate...how long after you've completed the drive cycle and have the 8 codes ready to go, will it take for the check engine light to re-register in the system?
tgarcia247 (2 года назад)
+BigNate84 thanks for your response. Not saying I expect you to know, but I have a 98 Ford Explorer with a check engine light on since I bought in 2003. I've invested so much money into the problem which was a code for oxygen somehow getting into the engine. From changing the sensors to the intake gaskets and even a fog test, still nothing. At this point I went ahead like you and a lot of people have recommended and gotten a code reader to try and reset it and get an idea of my drive cycle. The only crappy thing right now is my check engine light has been on for so long it's burned out lol given all this info, any suggestions? Other than trash the truck haha
BigNate84 (2 года назад)
+tgarcia247 from my experience that will depend on the type of code your reading and also how old the car is. On my 2002 Impala it could take a few days to re-register a code. We've updated our cars now in my house to 2009 and 2012 models and the codes seem to register almost immediately now.

Thank you so much for this, after watching several videos on emissions tests, you were the only one who explained it in a way I understood. And for other people out there who live in Chicago, Autozone does not lend out obd scanners anymore. They will do it for you, but they will not erase codes even after you repair yourself. So I suggest buying the $59.99 Actron scanner on amazon which will do everything a do it your selfer needs. Thank u, thank u, thank u BigNate
L R (16 дней назад)
All auto stores in New Mexico are the same way now too!! It doesn't matter how much time and money you sink into the bull that is required for emissions testing they absolutely will NOT clear the CEL nor will they erase any codes. (Even if they are the ones that sold you the parts after they ran the obd2 scanner on your vehicle and told you exactly what was wrong and how to fix it) My suggestion-- order a cheap obd2 scanner off the internet and do it yourself!
raul robles (1 год назад)

How far do you have to drive
BigNate84 (2 года назад)
That is an invalid question. It's not related to distance. The monitors reset based on the conditions that the engine experiences. Cruising at low speed, cruising at high speed, cold start, etc. I don't have a comprehensive list. Requirements vary by make/model/year.

Google (Yahoo, Bing, etc.): OBD II Drive cycle for (year make model). You should be able to find all of the steps (time, speed, etc) to complete the drive cycle. Also, usually the older the vehicle, the longer it takes to complete a drive cycle. It could take 5 or 6 drive cycles to get the OBD II system ready for inspection.

roostercrowe1 (2 года назад)
If you are trying to resolve an issue with you check engine light you can borrow an OBD II scanner from most local automotive parts stores. In my area it's AutoZone. Once you read the trouble code you can Google the code to learn possible causes. Start with the cheapest and easiest solution first then clear the error codes from your onboard computer with the scanner. As he stated in the video, some of the diagnostics will only run if specific conditions are met so it will be worth your time to find out EXACTLY what the manufacturer of your car considers a "DRIVE-CYCLE". Print this out or take notes - you will need to meet the conditions of the drive-cycle to complete the tests.

Some inspections are a joke. In NY, you can have a rusted frame in the center of the vehicle but it will fail if the evap system moniter doesn't reset.
MARC MARIEN (1 год назад)
I am a licensed N.Y.S inspector and I assure you a car or truck will not pass with a rusted frame according to New York State vehicle SAFETY inspection regulations. But you are allowed one incomplete in N.Y.S.

+dillon14dj that's just it. Some state inspections take into account the fact that the frame might be completely rusted out and some don't.

Barclay Reginald (2 года назад)
If your engine light is not on then you should be fine , but changing the engine oil and air filter if needed won't hurt before the test. If your battery has been disconnected for any reason then you need to drive the highway for a minimum of 5 kilometers and about 20 minutes through city roads so that the onboard computer can record all driving cycles. The same for if you had an 02 sensor replaced and the code cancelled you would need to reset the computer as I spoke of earlier. Any vehicle that is properly maintained should pass without a problem.

I have a 2001 Chevy Silverado 1500 5.3, I have no check lights but recently disconnected the battery to change the ignition cylinder.

how do I do a drive cycle for my Saturday 2001 l200 I just need the Secondary Air System and Oxygen Sensor? I can pass smog without it please help
juliadennehy (3 года назад)
And after you complete a drive cycle, don't shut the car off until AFTER state inspection if you know you have a code! Once the car is restarted the mil may come up immediately! It worked for me... And Nate... in Mass you can have one monitor not ready to pass... my EVAP wasn't ready, and I had a 0455. ;-) Large leak lives on for another year. Also I had a 2098, and it takes two ignition starts to set the code... PASS. =) Pending codes do not set the mil... thank God!

He said he suspects my Volvo needs a new "brain." I'm sick over it -- very expensive. Anyone have any ideas? P.s. No check engine light on.
Dan Lo Fat (3 года назад)
The exception is the non-heated sensor(s) do NOT need to be ready, FYI (they dont count in the test) - the Rear-most (heated) needs to be ready with the other 4, 5 or 6  sensors. Dont drive too farm, though , after the sensors are reading Ready, as the longer you drive, the more info comes from the heated sensor, and if that sensor is acting up (wildly flcutuating) then that sensors activities will push the code again.
Cliff Wheeler (3 года назад)
Up here in NH we are allowed 1 system not ready from 2001 to present and 2 for 2000 and prior.  No P0 codes can be present however.  Good video Nate.

+snowblind5151 Well, the Engine light wont come on until all sensors are Ready, so start the car more, drive more. You'll get there.

Just a reminder to your viewers... if you clear the OBD emission codes and then go to get an inspection, it will fail with an "OBD System Not Ready to Be Tested".  Check out this Google Blog: http://obdnotready.blogspot.com/

Not really a big help here.  He does not explain any specific drive cycle.

+Erik Bates That is nearly impossible. Each Make, Model, YEAR to year, all different - on purpose, of course.

Why would my 2007 Avalanche show not ready for Evaporator System and Oxygen Sensor after driving for 150 miles?
Dan Lo Fat (3 года назад)
+LivingLikeLarry AValanche relies on ignition cycles as well as mileage driven.

Can someone help me? I just bought a car that says I need to check the gas cap and it's fine and I brought it for an inspection and got the catalyst and evap not ready. I only have 10 days to fix this. Will this drive cycle work?

Hey nate I still have the cat not ready on my 97 camry you think it can pass the inspection, thanks
Dan Lo Fat (3 года назад)
+francisco mendoza Wait until it's Ready, then go for testing (it's the longest to come on as Ready after the O2 sensors)
BigNate84 (4 года назад)
nope.  it will never pass with an incomplete reading.  unless maybe you know the guy doing the inspection.

My check engine light is not on, but because my car has been sitting for over a year, I had to jump start it before taking it to get smog. Well needless to say it didn't pass smog. What do I do to get this vehicle to pass the smog test?

Big Nate...Last year I successfully used your method above to clear error codes and then complete a drive cycle to get a new sticker, but this year after clearing the error codes, the codes return and light up very quickly (under 4 miles of driving)  Any hints on how to pass this year or am I screwed? Will using a product like Sea Foam help? Don't want to pour more money into the car that I use just for neighborhood shopping The codes are:  P0125 insufficient coolant temp for closed loop fuel P1150 p  A/F ratio sensor P1153 p   another fuel sensor I beleive thanks!!

Sounds good then spread the words.

+Thushan Manick I did use some fuel system cleaner and it worked like a charm! Haven't had a code light up since!
Thushan Manick (4 года назад)
Hey dont worry I hve the same code.just use the fuel system cleaner 3/4 tank and normal drive till 1/2 tank. this will do the best and let me know
BigNate84 (4 года назад)
Sounds like you may need to fix something! 
slhines7 (4 года назад)
Thanks for this simply explained vid.
slhines7 (4 года назад)
I entirely understand and know what you mean.
BigNate84 (4 года назад)
Glad to have helped out.  It's hard to explain sometimes.
slhines7 (4 года назад)
Sweet and just know that you educated and helped a friend of mine with this info. I was trying to explain to him the whole inspection check engine light thingy,........resetting it., etc. He didn't really understand until I had him listen to you explaining it in far better detail than I ever could.
BigNate84 (4 года назад)
No no... THANK YOU for watching :-)

BigNate84 (5 лет назад)
what was the first code you got before you changed the O2 sensor?
clearwater (5 лет назад)
Hey thanks for the reply man. It finally completed the cycle but now Im getting p4091 code. I just replaced the O2 sensor last week.
BigNate84 (5 лет назад)
Never heard of that. Sounds like he's just paying off the mechanic.
Dazoe91 (5 лет назад)
is there a plan b if u cant pass the inspection? a friend told me I can go somewhere( I don't know where) and paid 70% percent of the car worth....I was wandering if u knew what he talking about?
BigNate84 (5 лет назад)
Since your BMW is made after 1996 you would need an OBDII code scanner. It will tell you how many monitors are ready and how many are incomplete. You may not need to buy a scanner though. Most AutoZones and other car repair stores want you to buy parts from them so they will often times let you borrow the house code scanner for free. Or send a tech/sales person out to do a quick scan/ diagnostic. If your BMW hasn't completed a drive cycle in 100 miles there might be something wrong.

BigNate84 , Thank you. I will be buying the correct scanner.
clearwater (5 лет назад)
Hey bro really good video. My 2002 BMW 330i keeps showing up as not ready and I drove about 100 miles and is still coming up as not ready. Im just tired of taking it to the deq and seeeing that. Would any scanner tell me that its ready or not ready?

Those heat temp guns are pretty handy. They'll save your fingers from getting burnt!
