Smog Check

In order to comply with state law, the California Department of Consumer Affairs/Bureau of Automotive Repair (DCA/BAR) directs vehicles to perform a Smog Check. The state uses a Vehicle Identification Database (VID), which collects data from each Smog Check performed in California. The VID is used by the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), BAR, and other government agencies. In addition, general vehicle data such as make, model-year, vehicle miles traveled, and engine size help define air pollution and regulation.

Some facts about Smog Check:

  • Brand New Cars Need Smog Testing Every 4 Years
  • Newcomers to California Need a Smog Test
  • Testing is Also Necessary When Buying a Used Car
  • Ours is a Smog Test Facility; Repairs Are Available
  • After Repairs, Second Test is Done at No Charge
  • Certified Repair Shop for the State

When you come to Ori's Service Center, you are visiting a state of the art facility that will  guarantee your test result will comply with the state of California regulations and your result, if passed, will be submitted to state's database using your VID.

The most common problems relating to your car are having your car stalled, poor gas mileage, and check engine lights. When you visit our center, we make sure to check for these most common problems: With stalling, we look at the sensor and check for a dirty air filter. We also check the fuel and coolant temperature. When gas mileage is a problem, our technicians discuss the grade of gasoline you're using and any debris which may be corroding the system. If your check engine light is on, system malfunctions are often an issue. In addition to system problems, the computer might turn on the light so you get any other problem fixed before you have severe issues or break down on the road. Using diagnostic testing, we can narrow in on the source of your problem and take away the guess work involved in repairs.

We have been in business for over 30 years. Our clients keep their loyalty to us, we return the favor by providing professional, courteous, and great pricing. For your next service, maintenance, or repair, contact us to schedule your visit.
