Once the repairs are made and the computer is cleared the readiness monitors must reset before it will pass an emissions inspection. As you drive the computer runs tests on the different emissions systems (EGR, EVAP, Oxygen Sensors, etc.) Once the computer decides that the systems have passed enough diagnostic tests the readiness monitor for that system shows "ready". To get these to set there is a specific "drive cycle", too lengthy to outline here, that can be done to get the readiness monitors to set right away. What you can do that is much easier is keep your gas tank between 3/4 and 1/4 full. No more and no less! Then just drive normally for about one week. During this time the readiness monitors will set. If it's cold where you're at the readiness monitor for the EVAP system probably won't set. But that's ok. Since your vehicle is a 2000 model it will pass if all but 2 readiness monitors are set. 2001 models and forward must have at least all but one set. HTH. -Jim
