TIPS TO HELP YOU PASS A SMOG

Type your paragraNobody enjoys getting a smog. We'd like to help you prepare yourself to pass! We're a Test Only Smog Station, that means we don't do repairs and we have no incentive for failing you. You can trust our inspection. ph here.

  • Drive your vehicle for at least 20 minutes prior to arriving at the smog check station. Vehicles have a computer which monitors the emissions system. If the vehicle is not driven X amount prior to resetting the codes, replacing a battery, jump starting a vehicle, etc. the codes are lost and the computer will not pass an inspection. As California continues to change its smog requirements, these restrictions become more and more difficult to prepare for.


  • Tire inflation - ensure your tires and evenly inflated for best results on the testing equipment


  • Change the oil - Vehicle maintenance is important to maintain proper emission expulsi

  • Make sure the Check Engine light is not illuminated. If it's on, the vehicle needs to be taken to a mechanic to fix the problem first. Don't forget step 1! If the mechanic resets your monitors to reset your error code, he probably erased you vehicles data with it. Monitors won't be ready! A constantly illuminated Check Engine light is an automatic smog test failure. Make sure you drive the vehicle X amount so your monitors have the necessary data.


  • You've prepared yourself and your vehicle. Now visit our main page, print a coupon, then head over for a smog. You're ready!
