I am about to sell my Nissan 1994 Altima (Auto). It has 73K miles on it.
I wanted to know if I need to do any preparation for the Smog test...to pass it.
The Car gives about 28-30 Highway miles / gallon (if that helps.)
You should consider doing a full tune-up since you are selling it, it's around the mileage for a tune-up, and to help pass.
tune up the car and make sure it has no vacume leaks (vacume leaks increase excess air and helps creates NOx), the charcoal filter in the evap. canister and the fuel cap is in good condition (pass HC) and make sure the base ignition timing and idle speed are within spec. Changing PCV valve on an altima is a P.I.T.A. (pain in the a$$)
as a seller in your state or whever you live, do you need to smog test b4 u sell it? that blows if it's true
I dont know what state amitverma0101 lives in. I do know in some states
with state wide emmissions testing, you have to certify the car passes
emmissions before selling a car.
In Tennessee, smog testing applies for the counties surrounding Metro Memphis-Shelby County, Metro Nashville - Davidson County (including surrounding areas) and starting next month, Chattanooga - Hamilton County. I don't think the State of Tennessee has any requirements beyond the EPA's concerning emmission systems for sellers. However, the car has to pass emmissions before the car can be titled and tagged if you live in the areas mentioned above.
phoooey, gotta love Alberta as is where is and if you bought a heap thinking it was a good runner, you can't go back and get your money from the seller or sue him , as is where is!
That is good advice - let the buyer beware
