Attention Lorton, VA Motorists: Schedule Your Vehicle Emissions Test Today!

Emissions Tests Performed at Wiygul Automotive Clinic for your Lorton, Va Vehicle

Part of the emissions test in Lorton, VA involves looking for visible smoke coming from your vehicle. If there is visible smoke during an emissions test in Lorton, VA your vehicle will fail the emissions test.

The smoke that comes from your vehicle may come from the tailpipe or crankcase. The color of the smoke can help determine the problem with the vehicle. Blue smoke can indicate engine oil being burned in the combustion chamber, while black smoke can indicate an overly rich fuel mixture (too much fuel, not enough air).

According to the Virginia Department of Air Quality, visible smoke failures must be corrected before your vehicle will pass an emissions test in Lorton, VA. If the vehicle is found to be exhibiting visible smoke before the emissions test begins, the inspection station will issue a "rejection from testing" and direct the citizen to have the visible smoke condition corrected prior to performing an emissions test during the inspection. A vehicle can also be failed during the emissions inspection for visible smoke if the smoke becomes visible during the conduct of an emissions inspection. A waiver cannot be issued for a visible smoke failure.

For more information on visible smoke, needed repairs and a Virginia state emissions test in Lorton, VA, please contact Wiygul Automotive Clinic. A Virginia DEQ and AAA-approved center for auto repair and maintenance, Wiygul Automotive Clinic specializes in complete foreign and domestic repair service before and after an emissions test in Lorton, VA and the rest of Northern Virginia.
