smog

I have a 87 jeep wrangler with a 4.2 runs great but will not pass smog. It has a new egr valve 02 sensor and cat converter. Does any body have any ideas?

Smoke test your vacume lines, check the charcole cannister. Even one tiny pin prick hole or cracked "T" or "90" will fail smog. Start there.

You also might need a carb adjustment. You might be running too rich. There is an additive called guaranteed to pass. I was skeptical but I used it on my 89 4.2 and, I passed.

Post your tailpipe numbers and the maximum limits allowed. Without that information, were only guessing.

Yes, try snake oil, go ahead....
Every car I see with that stuff in it always fails.
