Failed emissions test
These stupid Texas inspection!!!! Never failed before,but now it failed the Emissions test only on the high speed one. Any ideas? Will a basic tune up fix it? Has anyone tried the CRC 05063?95 tahoe 2dr 4x4 200,000+ miles

I used RXP. Drove it about 70 miles and they had a hard time getting it to pass.

A 95 5.7 dont have a MAF. I will use the seafoam again,I think I will pull the EGR and clean it as well.

Yea I'd say a tune-up and some internal engine cleaning.
Might try changing the oil if it's close to being due, I've had decent luck with that on a few of my resale cars/trucks.

New EGR, bottle of seafoam, 15 gallons of Shell V power 93 octane and the old hoe passed. Not by a little it was like the day I got it.

the egr spring I found on these type engines is good for 100,ooomiles then the spring gets weak and you get a little too much egr opening. then you will fail with too much co and hydrocarbon levels.
