Star Smog Checks & Repairs in Mountain View
Most cars and trucks are required to have smog checks and emissions testing completed every two years.

If your vehicle fails an emissions test we are able to repair it on site. There are numerous things that can cause a vehicle to fail a smog check, such as a rich fuel mixture or a faulty EVAP system, which checks for evaporating gasoline vapors. Our technicians can diagnose and repair issues that cause your vehicle to fail these bi-annual smog checks, ensuring that your car is safe and legal to be on the road! We are also a California State approved Brake & Lamp Inspection station.
One of the most common causes of emission test and smog check failures is an exhaust leak within the vehicle. Not only are exhaust leaks bad for the environment but they can take a serious toll on your car's performance and put you and your passengers at risk of serious health problems caused by exposure to the hazardous exhaust fumes. If you experience a loud rumbling noise during acceleration, notice a drastic decrease in your fuel efficiency or feel odd vibrations in the gas pedal your vehicle may have an exhaust leak. Give A-1 a call today for proper diagnosis and repair!
We complete smog checks and repairs on gas and diesel vehicles. Call A-1 Auto Tech today to schedule a smog check in Mountain View or to request an appointment for exhaust or emission repair service.
