Emissions testing makes sure your vehicle isn’t over-polluting the air. Most newer vehicles pass emissions tests without any strife, however if your vehicle is more than a decade old, it might not be living up to modern pollution thresholds set by the state.

• Excess output of hydrocarbons measured
• Excess production of carbon monoxide
• Sample dilution failure
• OBD diagnostic reading failure
• Gas cap failure
