The New York State DMV require inspection on your vehicle every 12 months and when the ownership of the vehicle is transferred. You're required a regular safety inspections and/or emissions inspections on cars and trucks. We are well-equipped and trained to perform these inspections.
Things that the inspection requires to be checked for safety:
- Seat Belts
- Steering, Front End, Suspension, Chassis, Frame and Wheel Fasteners
- Tires (Except spare)
- Windshield and Other Glass
- Windshield Wipers and Blades
- Fuel Leaks
- Tinted Windows
At Olympia Auto Repair, we take care of all of these inspection aspects, including emission testing.
The emissions inspections requirements are:
-An On-Board Diagnostics Generation II (OBDII) Inspection if your vehicle is applicable for most 1996 or newer gasoline-powered vehicles and most 1997 or newer diesel-powered vehicles having a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) less than 8,501 pounds.
-A "Low Enhanced" emissions inspection is required for most other vehicles, unless they are subject to the OBDII test or are exempt from all emissions inspections. This would be applicable to model year 1995 and older, through and including vehicles that are up to 25 model years old, and that weigh 18,000 lbs. or less.
The following emissions control devices are also examined if the vehicle was originally manufactured with them:
- Catalytic converter (CAT)
- Exhaust gas recirculation valve (EGR)
- Positive crankcase ventilation system (PCV)
- Air injection system (AIS)
- Evaporative emissions control (EVAP)
- Fuel inlet restrictor (FIR)
