I have a 2000 Audi A6 2.7 that I've been trying to smog. It has OBD codes 1141 and 1423 which translate to bank one and two secondary air injector system pump was weak. I brought it to my mechanic and he tried to make passes, but it wouldn't pass the emissions testing. He said I should take it to the dealer.
