ASM Gear Selection:
• Automatic transmission - Conduct the ASM test in the gear selector’s normal/default
driving position. Do not use any alternative driving modes, e.g., “towing mode”, “low
traction”, “performance”, or “sport.”
• Manual transmission - Conduct the ASM test for both modes of the test in second gear.
Only select higher or lower gears to maintain the EIS specified RPM range.

Two Speed Idle Inspection (TSI)
The TSI inspection is only required in Basic and Change of Ownership Smog Check Program Areas and in the Enhanced Smog Check Program Areas for vehicles that are incompatible with the ASM inspection.
The TSI inspection includes two test sequences; a 2500 RPM test and an idle test.
Inspectors must ensure that the applicable before-test-conditions specified are met before beginning the TSI inspection. Once the applicable before-test-conditions are met, follow the EIS prompts to conduct the TSI inspection.
• The 2500 RPM test is first and runs for 30 seconds. Then it is follow by the EIS "Emission Inspection System" prompts to complete the 2500 RPM test.
• Upon completion of the 2500 RPM test, the EIS "Emission Inspection System" will transition to the idle test. Return the throttle to idle and complete the idle test as prompted by the EIS.
• The EIS may prompt special test sequences for vehicles with known test incompatibilities. These special test sequences accommodate unique vehicle designs and must be followed exactly.
Not following the sequence could result in vehicle damage which you may be responsible for.
• Inspectors shall not artificially load the engine to achieve a testable idle RPM. This includes, but is not limited to, putting vehicle into gear and turning accessories on.
Note: If the vehicle fails the TSI emissions test, the EIS will automatically prompt for an additional conditioning procedure, and then transition to a second chance emissions test.
