SMOG TEST TYPE I
New Spark Plugs & wires, motor oils, oil filter, smoke treatment oils, premium gasoline all ready for the test.

I took my '89 sentra to 2 Smog station. The first station failed me by saying that the RPM idle speed is too high, Check Engine lit's on, etc., and it cost me $29 bucks for nothing! The second station I went to, saying that the CHECK ENGINE (orange lit indicator) is on and not suppose to after the engine started. He charges me $25..and offerred me if he fix the problem it will be another $75 dollars (after taxes it's $108.25). So I agreed, he unable to made the Check Engine lit disappear but he able to passed me (I think this is a fraud). I think I been RIPPED off! Anyways, I just want to able to registered my Sentra. All of this cost me about $150 plus another $42 to register with DMV.

Because now I'm thinking to take the speed odometer panel off and unscrewed the light behind that indicator, but then I suppose it's illegal. I think it's an Old Engine so the lit will on either ways And it has NOTHING to DO with the SMOG.

Does anyone have a suggestion how to fix this CHECK ENGINE indicator so it will be disappear?

Thanks in advance.

The check engine light is for monitering the emissions control systems. If it is on, most likely your car will not pass emissions. It could just be a faulty O2 sensor, so check your codes and fix it.
