Failed Smog Test

My 2007 VW Rabbit Needs Help Passing Smog

I just bought this Volkswagen Rabbit at a shady dealership a year ago and already it requires another smog check. I paid registration fees and now the smog station says I'm not passing the smog test due to a bad intake temperature sensor which costs 285.00 and has to be ordered. I need a new oil dip stick also because it wobbles, plus he said it needs an emissions label which is missing under the hood.

I'm perm disabled and get paid once a month. I can't be without my vehicle or driving without tags. The emission sticker is $77.00, the dipstick is $26.00.  I'm having surgery soon and I'm panicking. I need the car tested passed and my current tags asap. Can you please help me?


We recommed you apply for California CAP Repair Program. The CAP program will pay up to $500 in smog check related repairs. Plus once you apply and get accepted, the DMV can you give a free temporary 60 day registration permit.
