What Is Included in a Smog Check?
Smog checks are an essential part of car ownership. Choosing the right smog shop can mean the difference between a vehicle that’s permitted to be on the road and one that’s not.
Our smog tests are composed of three basic parts. In some cases, the make and model of your vehicle may exempt it from one or more of these tests. We will discuss these details with you when you bring it into the shop.
The Visual Inspection
Our emissions testers will begin by inspecting the exterior condition of your exhaust system. They will be looking for evidence of rust, corrosion, fractures, punctures, and other damages that may cause toxic fumes to leak out of the pipes.
The Functional Inspection
We will then run a series of tests on your vehicle’s on-board diagnostic system. This will include the check engine light and other diagnostic features. Modern cars are designed with built-in diagnostic systems that help smog centers perform more accurate tests.
The Emissions Inspection
Once the basics have been covered, it will be time to assess the actual emissions present in your vehicle’s exhaust. The most common pollutants that we find are:
- Carbon monoxide
- Nitrous oxide
If these are found to be in excess of local regulations, your vehicle will fail the test and may require repairs.
