    good news dudes! i passed smog with "flying" colors. the mechanic was great. ive taken it to him for the last 3 days and he hasn't charged me for the pretest once. i even failed the actual smog test twice today and he didnt charge me either. he even let me borrow his tools to work on my truck.

    anyways this is what i did. you guys probably dont care but im stoked because its been hell to get this thing to pass ive been trying for the last month...

    took it to smog place this morning
    failed
    posted up to ck5 while i was at school
    changed the o2 sensor
    took it back to smog place
    passed pretest
    failed smog test
    passed pretest again
    failed smog test again because of high HC's
    took it for a spin down to the beach and back with my girlfriend flooring it all the way. came back and it passed smog!

    weird but whatever now it works and its a load off of my mind.

    thanks for the help ck5!

    Great News. I had to go through all that crap about a year ago in Temecula. My truck failed by 1 PPM......
