To all providing advice on my California smog test failure. I had the day off today and had a chance to go around other shops and gathered information. Although the car was initially purchase in CA. I come to find out there is no EGR valve on this particular vechicle. There is only an O2 sensor and catalytic unit. The truck has 180,000 mi. on it. On two different occasions in talking with a Ford service person and a indendent auto repair house, there is a strong suspect that the catalytic converter is most likely the faulty part. I have 30 days for a retest at a cost of 28.00 (one retest at that price) The costs to confirm that the catalytic converter is indeed the problem is 150.00 at another shop and the cost to replace it will be 240.00.
