Need advice after complete engine re-build: Smog/MOT test

Recommended Posts

Hello, my mechanic is in the final stages of a complete engine re-build for my 1999 Esprit V8 SE in the US. He seems to be having some computer issues and an idle issue as well. I need to pick the car up from him and take it in to get the Smog Registration completed here in California (similar to the MOT I believe). My question is: is there anything specific to keep in mind to get the car ready to pass the Smog test after an engine re-build?

Cheers!

No, Not really.

 

Drive the car several hundred miles to make sure the rings seat and make sure all the readiness flags get set. The O2 sensor readiness is fussy to set but it should complete. Independent of the rebuild the CATs need to be in good shape. The engine looks clean and should get no "hard eyes".
