Emission Control Testing

Dec 18, 2015

Engine efficiency and emission levels go hand-in-hand with today’s vehicles. Improved engine designs, computerized engine management and controlled fuel metering all contribute to reducing the hazardous substances that our cars emit into our atmosphere, while providing reliable power and expected economy.
 
Numerous advanced technologies are present in your vehicle to actively reduce the amount of harmful emissions leaving in the exhaust from your engine. Secondary air injection, exhaust recirculation and catalytic converters all play a role in reducing the levels of toxins present. Having a properly functioning fuel delivery system helps to keep your engine running cleanly as well.
 
Dirty fuel injectors and other fuel system components can cause numerous problems for the performance of your engine. These include a lean fuel mixture, misfires, rough idle, higher carbon emissions (bad for the environment) and poor fuel economy.
 
One of the most important components in your vehicle for controlling exhaust emissions, the oxygen sensors measure the amount of oxygen present in your vehicle's exhaust and send a signal to your vehicle's engine management computer to adjust the air/fuel mixture to ensure optimum performance with the lowest emissions. Worn oxygen sensors do not operate in their full intended range and therefore send the wrong signal to the system. Neglected sensors can cause serious and expensive damage to your vehicle's catalytic converter along with very poor emissions and fuel economy. Most sensors recommend replacement anywhere between 50-90,000kms.
 
A properly maintained vehicle not only runs better, and vehicles running at optimal levels are also more fuel efficient thereby saving you money at the pump, it also reduces the harm done to the environment as best it can. Regularly scheduled maintenance, diagnostics and emission control testing will help prevent early component failure, detect malfunctioning sensors and ensure that your engine runs to the standards for which it was designed.
