Ok no choice p0492 what about smog

If you've been following me or my posts a lot of you know I'm fighting the old p0492 and I believe I have come to the realization of plugged ports .... Sooooo I don't have the time or $$$ in the next 45 days to repair before I need to renew tags and it's a smog year ... I live in California soooo please is there any Californians that have came across this? Is there any possible way at all to pass smog?? Anyway at all ... Please I need any and all info thanks

I don't think you are going to find any smog shop that will pass it "legally " with a secondary air fault . But depending on the smog shop some will pass it with one monitor not ready I know they used to . But that was two years ago when I had my truck pass with one not ready ,, but I hear they no longer allow that any more .. I think as long as you pay the tags you can get an extension if repairs are required . But I'm not 100 % on that , but worth asking at the DMV .
