Orem, Utah Emissions Inspections

Emissions inspections are an important service that Master Muffler offers to the people of Utah. It’s no surprise to Utahns that the air quality in Salt Lake, Utah, and Weber Counties leaves a lot to be desired, especially during periods of heavy inversion. As such, Utah law requires that vehicles undergo emissions tests, annually or biannually. Vehicles that are older than 6 years must get an emissions check every year, while vehicles newer than 6 years must get one every other year.

Emissions Test Failures

If your vehicle fails an emissions test, there are several common reasons why. The good news is that most of these reasons are easily fixable and that your vehicle can often be tuned and fixed to put out a minimal amount of emissions. Here are some of the most common causes of emissions tests failures that we see in our shops:

  • Imbalanced air-fuel mixture
  • Faulty spark plugs
  • Evaporative emissions control system defects
  • Gas cap leaks
  • Dirty air filters
  • Old or damaged catalytic converters
  • Faulty check engine light

How to Reduce Your Emissions

There are several ways to cut down on your vehicle’s emissions, and it mostly has to do with routinely taking care of your vehicle by practicing common sense maintenance. This includes getting regular oil changes, having tune ups done on your vehicle, and making sure your tires are properly inflated. Your catalytic converter is also key to cutting down on your emissions, and can drastically reduce the impact that you have on the air quality in Utah. Master Muffler is also a state industry leader in catalytic converter repairs and replacements.
