State Vehicle Emissions Testing & Inspection

With regular car inspections and periodic emissions checks, drivers can be familiarized with any mechanical problems with their vehicles. In case your car fails the inspection or the vehicle-emissions test, you will know it is ready for some immediate attention and possibly some repair or service. Car owners must schedule the repair ASAP because it might jeopardize the dependability of the car and even cause substantial fines or even an invalidated registration. For that reason, it is always recommended to have your vehicle checked by a skilled technician at least every 6 months to avoid all these inconveniences. Some frequently asked questions on vehicle inspection are described below.


What is On-Board Diagnostics or OBD?

The OBD or On-Board Diagnostics, or OBD II is a standardized computer system implemented in all automobiles built in and after 1996. In short, all the automobiles made in 1996 and after will have an OBD system in them, which provides information reports on self-diagnosis of the car usually used by automobile professionals prior to carrying out any type of automobile repairs.


What Are The Most Common Causes Of a Failed Emissions Test?

A car emissions examination can fail for many reasons due to malfunctioning car parts such as an injector, oxygen sensor, spark plugs or even an EVAP system. One of the most common causes is faulty injectors. Either the injectors or a malfunctioning oxygen sensor can trigger a “abundant air-fuel combination” causing a disappointing vehicle emissions test result.

If your car has damaged spark plugs, there is a greater chance that it might be the root cause of a rise in exhaust discharges. This, in turn, can lead to a failed vehicle-emissions examination.

Any type of problem or shortages in the EVAP system or evaporative emission control system can cause a problem in the handling of the gasoline vapor emitted from the vehicle leading to atmospheric pollution.

If your automobile hasn’t gone through routine maintenance and the “check engine” light is lit up on the control panel, your car may fail the vehicle-emissions test.


What Do They Check for in a Vehicle Inspection?

A licensed inspector conducts an automobile inspection at state-approved examination stations only. This is what they will check for:

  • Front lights: headlamps evaluation to make sure of proper operation, no cracked lenses or lights, lights are the right shade, are identical, and turn signals are operable.
  • Tail lights: Turn signals, marker lights, hazard lights, license plate lights, brake lights, reverse lights are operable, and no broken taillights
  • Tires and Tires: to check tire problems for any indications of wear and tear and if there is a requirement for replacement
  • Mirrors: Ensure no mirrors are cracked, broken or missing
  • Seat belts: to examine safety belt condition and ensure they are safely working or require replacing
  • Brakes: an in-depth brake evaluation to ensure proper brake response and if there are any type of brake fluid leaks
  • Horn: make sure the horn is operative
  • Evaluation of suspension and shock absorbers

How Long Does A Safety Inspection Take?

Depending upon the state, city, and region where the vehicle examinations are carried out, the automobile safety inspection period might differ. Nonetheless, for most vehicles, this procedure typically takes an hour to 90 minutes.
