I had to have an emissions test on a 2000 Chevy Venture and it failed miserably. Several codes came up on the on board computer. P0101: Mass or Volume Air Flow Circuit Range/Performance Problem, P0171: System too Lean, P0449: EVAP Control System Vent Valve/Solenoid Circuit and P0742: Torque Converter Clutch Circuit Stuck On were all the codes that came up.
