SpeeDee: Your car failed the smog test.
SpeeDee: We can't figure out why your car failed the smog test. (But we won't charge you for the diagnostic.)
Volvo California Swedish: Your oxygen sensor is broken, and your exhaust pipe is cracked and leaky, and your catalytic converter might be messed up too.
Advanced Auto Repair: We could replace the oxygen sensor, but your exhaust pipe will probably break in the process.
Muffler place (contracted by AAR): Here's a shiny new exhaust pipe!
Advanced Auto Repair: Here's a shiny new oxygen sensor!
SpeeDee: Your car passed the smog test!
