is it 98 or 88? your post is different from your sig. If an 88 I don't think they can make you pass emitions for current year. If it does not have factory things as current trucks I don't see how they can inforce that.

Could be so many things.
I recently failed the inspection on my 2000 jeep XJ, 160k + miles.
Changed out the Cat and oxygen sensors and it passed right away.

So far my Ranger has never failed (knock on wood).

I do tune-ups and oilchanges religiously, but eventually things will fail as the age and mileage gets up there.

The 94 Mazda pickup passed smog but failed the evap test. Can you go into more detail with the test, what it measured as more than likely changing 02 sensors and cat with a good tune up will help.
