It is that time of year again.
You need to renew your registration. Nevada requires smog checks at time of registration or renewal. A smog check is a test done on the exhaust system of a motor vehicle to determine how many pollutants the vehicle is emitting. It can also tell what type of pollutants are being emitted. It also includes an assessment of other parts of the vehicle that can affect emission control to make sure that they are in working order. Lost in the 50s Automotive of Las Vegas offers smog checks. We can also electronically send your results to the Department of Motor Vehicles. Smog testing is a nationwide effort to address clean air issues. All states have emissions limits which vehicles cannot exceed.
During a smog test, a device is connected to the tailpipe of your vehicle while the engine is run to determine the emissions of the car in idle and while being revved. These findings are compared to Nevada state standards. We also check to make sure that the muffler is in working properly, and open the hood to make sure that all hoses and pipes are properly connected. Another important thing to check is that the vehicle’s internal computer is functioning correctly. Vehicle owners should get a smog check for their vehicles regularly, not only because it is legally required. But because a failed smog check can imply that a vehicle needs to be repaired.
