1993 Honda Prelude wont pass smog!

My 1993 Honda Prelude si will not pass smog. I have put in a new catalytic converter, had it tuned up, and also had the EGR checked and the valves check and they found carbon. So I had that cleaned out. The problem is also the check engine light is intermittent. You drive it for a few miles and it will come on. If you turn the car off and restart it the light goes off. Drive it again for a few miles then it comes back on. Need it to pass smog so I can sell it.

Any suggestions?

Thank you. It did pass smog. However, in the morning when I start it, the check engine is not on, but after I drive it and turn it off only to start it again, the light will stay on and will continue to be on until the engine is off for the day.
