TOYOTA PICKUP SMOG PROBLEM

1993 Toyota Pickup • 128,000 miles

Have a 4 cylinder 2.4 L motor. Im the orginal owner.
Will not pass California smog test. It has never failed
a smog test since Ive owned it. The only thing that was
replaced was the cadalytic converter. The orginal one
was stolen by thieves for its platinum. I had an after market
converter put on to prevent any further thefts. Its not passing
by. Test @ 15 mph HC (PPM) 95 max - mine 98. Also
Test @ 15 mph NO (PPM) 552 max - mine 634. Would this
be the result of the aftermarket converter. It was put on in
2010 -2011. Thanks William

Yes, the aftermarkets are not as good as the oem. Thats why it is cheaper than the original.
