most OBD II vehicles are similar...

basically you need to have so many cycles of warm-ups and cool-downs w/ the key cycling on/off...

i'll attach some good links to try so you can get your vehicle ready for the emissions test


so, did you reset the car's computer/cleared any trouble codes before the test recently? or disconnecting the battery/having it changed will lose the info stored in your car's computer

so it needs a few cycles of driving in various speeds to "re-learn" and hopefully no trouble codes will come back to fail you. a few days to up to a week it seems :\
