Get Your Emission Inspection in Fairfax Station, VA
How are VA Emissions Inspections Tests Completed?
In many cases, emissions are tested while the vehicle is driven on a dynamometer at only 15 mph and 25 mph. Most 1996 and newer vehicles will receive a test of the vehicle's on-board diagnostic computer system instead of the regular tailpipe emissions test. Most vehicles will also receive a gas cap pressure test to detect excessive fuel vapor leakage. For all gasoline powered vehicles, a visual smoke inspection, and an inspection of certain emissions control equipment that was originally installed by the manufacturer will be conducted.
