What do they check in a car inspection? It’s a question we’ve gotten from many Manchester drivers over the years. When your car is in our service center, we’ll be sure to take care of the important necessary tests to ensure that your car is road-ready.

Oil Change Mechanic

Vehicle Emissions Testing

Air pollution can contribute to poor air quality, and the vehicles on the road today can be helpful in many ways, but also emit air pollutants that can be harmful. Clean air is something we all deserve, which is why your vehicle must pass emissions testing each year.

Maintaining your vehicle keeps it in strong running shape, but it can also reduce harmful emissions. Tuning the engine and having the oil changed according to manufacturer specifications goes a long way. If your Check Engine light comes on and stays on, that can be a sign that your vehicle needs emissions control. A decrease in gas mileage can also be a sign that service is required.

A car may not pass an emissions test if there are malfunctioning components, engine misfire, catalytic converter issues, or poor-fitting gas caps. We’ll provide the right fix and get you back on the road soon.

Tire Inspection

Inspecting Your Car for Safety

Every inspection will include a visual overview, which includes verification of registration, license plate, and vehicle identification number (VIN).

From there, our experienced service technicians are sure to test key components. Testing the brakes includes a look at the parking brake and service brakes. Exhaust system components will receive an inspection, and if there’s excessive blue or black smoke coming out of the tailpipe, we can correct the issue.

Inspections also involve a look at the:

  • Exhaust system
  • Steering and suspension
  • Horn
  • Lights
  • Tires and wheels
  • Bumper and fenders

If your vehicle fails inspection, you’re entitled to a free re-inspection within 60 calendar days at the location where the vehicle was originally tested. If you have any questions about safety and emissions, get in touch with us today.
