    My sons 2002 ford ranger won't pass emissions. Check engine light is on but when l did the test no codes came up. A while back it came on and it was running lean in bank one. It's a 4 banger so... so far I've replaced the up stream 02 sensor air filter and fuel filter. I'm open to suggestions. It idles a little little rough but it has 220000 miles on it

    How about the spark plugs? Doesn't the 2.3L I4 have two per cylinder? I would pull those and make sure they are all clean and in good shape. Maybe use a scanner to "clear codes" anyway or leave the battery disconnected for a while to see if you can get the PCM to forget the code.

    It has 4 plugs. I've tried all of the clearing tricks. To no avail

    At that age, all rubber lines are suspect. A vac leak will cause a lean condition, as will several other issues.

    If you have a CEL, you can pull the code with the proper equipment. This is where I would start.

    My understanding is your car's computer has to talk to the State computer, else your results will not have your VIN on the paperwork.
