Our shop is also equipped and authorized to do emissions inspection. The state requires yearly emissions testing of all vehicles in Maryland. Any cars made after 1996 are required to get a test. If your car is made prior to 1996, you have to get an ASM test or something similar. Emissions testing gauges the number of pollutants your care is releasing into the air. It specifically tests for carbon dioxide (CO2), hydrocarbons (HC), carbon monoxide (CO), and oxides of nitrogen (NOx). If your car is putting out too high levels of these, your car will fail inspection. Our shop is ready to affordably and quickly repair the problems causing it to fail. Once your car passes, you are issued an inspection sticker.
