If you have any exaust leaks, then you won't pass emissions. But usually the guy running the test would say so. What you can do is change yoru oil and oil filter then drive the truckat least 10 miles on the exspressway. Then take it in for testing, that lets the engine heat up sufficently and get rid of excess hyrdocarbons. Try that and see if you pass then.
