What is a Smog Test?
The Smog and Emission Test is a program designed to improve the air we breathe by tackling the environmental impact of vehicle emissions. It is a mandatory test for all San Diego drivers and is designed to identify vehicles that are over-emitting so that they can be fully repaired. In general, most vehicles in San Diego are required to pass a smog test every two years.
It’s the Little Things that Count
If you’ve being involved in the auto repair industry as long as we have, you realize that it is improving the small things is what really matters. Sure, every now and then a car will need a new engine or a replacement windshield for it to operate at its optimal level but truth be told these times are few and far between.
The fact of the matter is that, most of the time, making a small adjustment to how you drive your car can make all the difference. Similarly, when it comes to improving the smog and emissions efficiency of your vehicle we start with the little things.
In general this will include making minor adjustments to the exhaust or transmission capacity to ensure that fewer emissions are being released into the air that we breathe. At the end of the day that is the main objective of the state-regulated smog test.
