What makes a car pass inspection? We’re here to answer that very important question. We take care of the necessary tests to ensure that your car is road-ready.

Car Inspection Emissions Testing

Cars can be helpful in so many ways, but they’ll contribute to air pollution if not properly cared for. We all want to be able to breathe clean air. That’s why your car must pass an emissions test each year.

Maintaining your car keeps it running smoothly, but preventive maintenance helps reduce harmful emissions. Having the engine looked at, and changing the oil, can go a long way. If the Check Engine light has turned on, it may be trying to tell you of an emissions-related concern. Have you noticed that your gas mileage has decreased in recent weeks? Service may be needed.

Malfunctioning engine components, an engine misfire, or catalytic converter issue may lead to a vehicle not passing an emissions test. We’ll provide the fix and get you back on the road with your inspection sticker in tow.

Massachusetts Safety Inspection

Each safety inspection starts with a visual overview, which includes verifying your registration, vehicle identification number (VIN), and license plate. Once we’ve completed this, it’s time to move on and test your vehicle’s key components.

That means we’ll test the brakes, including the parking brake and service brakes. Exhaust system components get a once-over. If any blue or black smoke is detected to be coming from the tailpipe, we’ll work to correct the issue.

An inspection also involves a look at the:

  • Exhaust system
  • Steering
  • Horn
  • Lights
  • Tires and wheels
  • Bumpers and fenders

If your car fails inspection, you can get it re-inspected within 60 calendar days at the location where it was originally inspected. Have questions about your next safety inspection or emissions test? Contact our service technicians for the answer.
