Smog Inspection

Depending on the age and model of your vehicle, different tests can be conducted. However, before we can perform an analysis on your car, our mechanics will survey the following factors, and decide on the best course of action.

The tests we conduct at our smog shop include:

Two Speed Idle Check Test

This test measures exhaust emissions. We will run your engine at high speed and calculate the amount of emissions that are being released. This test is typically conducted on cars that have been manufactured before the year 1995.

Acceleration Simulation Mode Test

This test is also typically run on older vehicles. We will use a mechanism called a dynamometer to measure the amount of emissions being released from your tailpipe.

On-Board Diagnostic Test

A more modern approach to smog testing is the on-board diagnostic test, which uses a sophisticated computer system to analyze your vehicle’s consumption and the amount of smog emissions being released. This approach is especially fast and reliable.

Results Proceedings

Once the test is complete, you will receive a report of whether your vehicle passed or failed. Our mechanics are happy to review this information with you and let you know how to move forward.

If your vehicle passes the test, you will be free to drive away without having to worry about breaching local bylaws. If your vehicle fails the test, it means that your car produces excessive emissions. In this case, our mechanics will provide a report outlining the reasons why your car failed and the repairs required.

We will retest your engine once the repairs are completed.
