Problem getting my inspection sticker

How many miles do you have to go before your 02 sensors are ready? I've tried 100 miles and I've try 250 miles and still not ready. I've been told today I have to drive 55 miles at 55 mph. Anyone else having the same problem ?

1 make sure your o2's are on and working properly.
2 look up and do the drive cycles for your car and should be good to go.

Owners manual has the proper drive sequence.

Flash it back to stock then drive Fords recommended driving sequence. Once your inspected flash your tune. I had the same problem on my V6 last year. Flashed to stock drove it 50 miles according to the owners manual. Car passed.

Nope, not that I know of. I just called and asked and they sent a new tune because they said they turned the rears off.

Pay $85 for the special inspection. Your local performance shop should be able to point u to the right direction as long as they feel comfortable with u. If u got a tune, I bet there's other stuff not smog worthy.

Be better to know someone that can do it for you without returning anything to stock. Best way is get ur car tuned locally and ask them for referrals.

I meant to say... Take rverything off and return to stock. Get sticker and stay smog legal... That's the proper way

Some stations in Saint Louis used to require a $50 bill in the glovebox for passage.

Arkansas has absolutly no ispections whatsoever. I haven't asked my brother if they adopted an inspection process yet. But if you want to build a car that is one state where you have no restrictions. When I visited my brother a few years back I saw some real POS on the road. Car with no hood and wire holding bumpers on. He passed a cop with no chase given. Blew my mind to see a hunk of junk pass a cop with no hood and rusted out to no end not get pulled over.
