Make sure the car is good a warm when the test is done. Have an appointment, and take the car on the highway before going in.

If you think it needs it, change the air filter/sparkplugs. I used a fuel injector cleaner a week or so before taking the test. Do an oil change before the test as well (couple of days before). You probably won’t have any problem, but these are a few inexpensive things you can do.

I had an 88 Corolla with 270+ KM to pass the emissions test with flying colours with the above few things.

Good Luck

Also waste all the gas in your car and fill it with HIGH octane gas at sunoca and THEN add that crappy tire stuff.

Drive the car hard a couple days before the test.

Get another car with similar specs as yours (which has recently passed test), go to a shop that you know and does emission tests and have them hook-up your buddies car but enter your vin number on the computer.....

There you go!!!!!

I didn't give you this tip by the way...
