Try testing the cat. converter if not try your oxygen sensors what did the dealer replace already? did you have a tune-up lately like plugs wires fuel filter anything like that? try the tune-up first then the oxygen sensors and if all else fails then try the cat. converter Don't have the dealer test it. Ask friends, that have old cars, if they know of a testing facility that might be more "understanding" of a vehicle that has a problem which doesn't directly affect the safe operation of the vehicle. In other words, there are testing stations that can and will pass such vehicles. You just have to find them.

How you can turn back mileage?

This is an illegal operation that will get you nothing but trouble. Don't even think about doing this. If you get caught, which you will, you will pay dearly. And more and more vehicles are storing information in the vehicle computer which makes odometer fraud much more difficult to perform and easier to detect. Most criminals don't think about the fact that when the car goes for emissions testing or to a dealer for repair, the mileage is stored in their computers. Go to a Honda dealer, give them your VIN, and you can get a printout of everything Honda ever did to the car...same thing with state emissions testing...the services like CARFAX pull this data to spot odometer fraud.

The 2001 Lumina has the OBDII system. The only way to access the data is with an OBD2 reader (about $120 ) from any FLAPS (Friendly Local Auto Parts Store) Or you could take the car to a dealer and pay them to read the codes. Purchase the Haynes manual for the Lumina so you can look up the codes and figure out whats wrong.
