    Hey all, I've got a 2005 330Ci that I've painstakingly fixed up quite a lot. Had a small issue with a vacuum leak that ended up just being a faulty MAF. Replaced it, got rid of P0174 and P0171. Now the engine is completely vacuum tight and equipped with all kinds of goodies. Unfortunately, now...

    So I've been trying to pass smog for the past month. I recently got my 02 sensors changed in my 2003 330Ci. I took my car in for smog and they said my monitors were not complete. I hooked up my OBDII reader and found that my EVAP, oxygen sensor, and oxygen sensor heater monitor were all...

    Guys I'm desperate for help. SoCal car-short 5 mile drives typically-no codes thrown in years. I go to smog and get booted for "secondary air not ready". Peak tool reads no codes. Cleared anyway. I do some research and check engine during cold start. The air pump works for about a minute, the...

But I can't because she's blowing too many hydrocarbons. 71 PPM to be exact. I tried race fuel and injector cleaner and the...

    I just moved to Roseville from North Carolina, and found out that my car cannot pass smog with Jim Conforti intake and shark injector. Can someone recommend a good smog place that can pass me? I would consider to drive to bay area if I have to.
