Went in for CA smog test for new car registration today and the car would not test. Reason? there has to be a 2 stage idle test. So they need to run the engine at 2500 rpm for 30 seconds to get the test. Doesnt work. When the car is in park, and the engine is revved, the computer knows the car isnt moving, so it automatically throttles down the engine to idle, within about 7-10 seconds. Impossible to get a read that way. SO, how can I get my new car registered in the 15 day window without incurring fees from the state of CA? How do I get the car smogged?
