Exhaust Repair – Fairfax, VA Drivers and Emissions Requirements

Exhaust Repair ? Fairfax, VA Drivers and Emissions Requirements | Wiygul Automotive Clinic

exhaust 02-05-18 Share:

A car exhaust problem can be much more than just an annoyance. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms – classic “loud muffler” noise, a rattling when you start, accelerate or slow your vehicle, you smell tailpipe fumes inside your car, or feel unusually sleepy while driving – it’s time to visit the auto professionals at Wiygul Automotive Clinic for exhaust repair in Fairfax, VA.

Your exhaust system has four primary functions:

  1. It draws harmful exhaust gases out and away from the engine and passenger cab
  2. It reduces high levels of engine noise
  3. Oxygen sensors monitor exhaust fumes to maintain engine efficiency
  4. The catalytic converter reduces the amount of hazardous pollutants from the exhaust output

If any of these functions are disrupted it can not only effect your engine performance, but it can be dangerous to you and those inside your vehicle. Combined with the significant impact car emissions have on clean air quality, there are many reasons to opt for exhaust repair sooner than later.

Fairfax, VA motorists, and those throughout Northern Virginia, may receive a notice in the  mail generated by on-road emissions testing equipment. According to the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality (VA DEQ), every vehicle owner in Northern Virginia must be in compliance with the requirements of the On-Road Emissions (ORE) program, a remote sensing program that “reads” high levels of exhaust emissions from passing vehicles.

If you receive a Notice of Violation from the VA DEQ ORE Program you have 30 days for Wiygul Automotive Clinic to perform a “Confirmation Test” to determine if your vehicle is actually in need of emissions repair near Fairfax, VA.

If your vehicle requires auto repair the ASE-certified master auto technicians at Wiygul Automotive Clinic are well-trained and well-equipped to serve all of your auto repair needs. Fairfax, VA drivers can trust the team at Wiygul Automotive Clinic to provide exceptional service and get them safely back on the road in no time.
