Emissions testing for a cleaner Plano and North Dallas.
Tire & Automotive
1407 E. Belt Line Rd. in Richardson
Emissions Testing-Description: A
program designed to periodically check vehicle emissions to ensure
they are within limits. Often referred to as an I/M
(Inspection/Maintenance) program, they are used in numerous states
and areas as required by the Environmental Protection Agency to
improve air quality in those areas. Although the requirement comes
from the federal government, states and their associated agencies
have some flexibility in the type of test used, vehicle populations
to be tested and other program-specific details. Some states run
centralized programs that have state-contracted test stations
exclusively dedicated to testing. Other states run decentralized
programs, where emissions can be tested at local repair facilities.
In a few cases, states may run "hybrid" programs using both
centralized and decentralized test stations. The latest trend is to
incorporate the use of second-generation onboard diagnostics
(OBDII) into these programs, in many cases altogether eliminating
the need for tailpipe emissions tests.
Purpose: I/M programs evaluate the emissions from vehicles and single out those that are polluting beyond the limits established for certain model years of vehicles. Aside from identifying vehicles with high emissions, such programs advocate proper maintenance to prevent high emissions due to maintenance neglect.
Maintenance Tips/Suggestions: The best way to keep your vehicle environmentally friendly is by performing regularly scheduled maintenance, rather than waiting to correct a problem after your car fails an emissions test. If the SERVICE ENGINE SOON or CHECK ENGINE light appears, have it checked out immediately by a professional technician. Neglecting these warning signs can cause lead to more extensive and expensive repairs.

If hydroplaning, do not hit the brakes. It is better to take your foot off the gas, hold the steering in place, and lightly apply the breaks.

The correct air pressure for your tires is specified by the vehicle manufacturer and can be found on the vehicle placard located on door edge, door post, glove box door or fuel door. You should check your tire's air pressure at least once a month.
