Fontana's Best Choice For STAR-Certified Smog Inspections and Certifications
The Radiator Man is authorized by the California Bureau of Automotive Repairs to perform smog inspections and certifications. After visually inspecting your vehicle's emissions equipment to ensure that it is functioning properly, we will conduct one of several certified emissions tests. These are designed to accurately measure the amounts of carbon monoxide (CO), carbon dioxide (CO2), hydrocarbons (HC), oxygen (O2), and oxides of nitrogen (NOx) emitted by your vehicle. For older cars (usually model years prior to 1995), standard tests include the Two-Speed Idle (TSI), and the Acceleration Simulation Mode (ASM), both of which measure emissions from your car's tailpipe. For newer cars, we will also download readings directly from your vehicle's onboard computer system.
Catalytic Converter Replacements, Muffler/Exhaust System Repair, Oxygen Sensor Repair, Smoke Vapor Tests, and More
If your car or truck fails its smog test, it could be due to a variety of factors. These could include a malfunctioning catalytic converter, EVAP system (which filters gas fumes from the fuel tank so they don't get emitted into the atmosphere), mufflers/exhaust system, oxygen sensor, and/or the ignition coils. If we discover the problem is with your EVAP system, will can perform a smoke test that checks for leaks and helps us determine if your valves are opening and closing properly. If necessary, we can then purge the valves to re-establish proper vapor flow. Whatever the cause of your vehicle's malfunction, our ASE-certified technicians can be relied upon to complete the necessary smog repairs in a timely manner, in accordance with your needs and budget.
