New CA smog laws????

Friend of mine went to get his 6.0 smogged today....passed the visual but failed because they plugged it in and could see egr isnt working. Smog guy said as of may 1st the state made them get new equipment to test the ecm too. Anyone else heard of this????? His truck does have egr cooler welded shut and is flashed with stock tune minus egr.

(Always Faithful) is the motto of the Corps. That Marines have lived up to this motto is proved by the fact that there has never been a mutiny among U.S. Marines.

Perhaps a DTC was present? They've plugged in diesels for a while now in CA during smog checks.

ive had my truck smogged twice and they always plug it in.

I guess if the equipment is good enough they could check different functions pretty easy

Most likely they saw a soft code. Depending on year the P0401 Insufficient EGR flow code will NOT throw a CEL but will store as a memory code. They WILL fail on that code. If a tuner that shuts the EGR off is used then there will be no codes for the EGR system and the truck will pass. As far as I know they will not and cant actuate tests. This can cause engine damage if they don't know what they are doing. Soft codes will always tip them off tho.

They have plugged mine in as well and i think they check vin and codes only. I dont think his throws a code because the ecm was rolled back and egr turned off quite a while ago, it has passed smog previously. But i agree with warchild......

I had my truck smogged a few weeks ago. It "failed" because not all the sensors were reading. So I had to go drive it for about 15 minutes and come back. Once all of the sensors were up and being read, it was good to go.

The best part, my truck wasn't even supposed to be smogged this year. My renewal paper even said that I could renew online. Then about a month ago I got a letter saying that it needed a smog.

For anyone wondering, this state sucks. Can't tune your truck, can't change anything on your truck. Hell, due to the drought, you can't even WASH YOUR TRUCK!
