Exhaust Leak

One of the most common reasons for failing an emissions test, is due to an exhaust leak. Somewhere in your vehicle’s exhaust system, there is a hole or poor seal that is allowing exhaust to escape prematurely. This is harmful to the environment and also to you and the others inside your vehicle.

Our skilled technicians can quickly find the leak in your exhaust system and repair it for you. As this is one of the most common reasons for failing emission testing, pay close attention to a loud noise while accelerating. Also, you may experience a vibration in your gas pedal and decreased fuel economy.

Faulty EVAP System

Another common reason for failing an emissions test is due to a faulty EVAP system. Your EVAP system is responsible for checking for evaporating gasoline vapors. This system will catch these vapors and prevent them from going into the atmosphere. This makes it obvious why a faulty EVAP system, will lead to failing an emissions test.

This is no challenge for our skilled technicians here at A-1 Auto Tech, Inc. We will happily repair your EVAP system and get it functioning like it should. We want more than anything for you to be able to pass emissions and enjoy driving your vehicle.

Rich Air/Fuel Mixture

Another very common reason for not passing emissions is due to a rich air to fuel mixture. Inside of your engine fuel and air combine and are then ignited. This is what creates the power to propel your vehicle forward. There is a very precise ratio of the amount of air that is to be combined with the right amount of fuel.

A rich ratio is when too much fuel is combined with not enough air. This will cause your vehicle to fail emissions as it is over-fueling. This can cause excess fuel to be emitted out of the exhaust of the vehicle.
