Exhaust and Emissions

Exhaust

Several states now require regular (annual or biannual) emission tests. These tests have different names; the most common are inspection/maintenance (I/M), SMOG, or OBD-II emission testing. The tests may involve visual inspection of certain emission-control systems, measuring tailpipe emissions at specified engine speeds or as the vehicle runs on a dynamometer, or verifying the proper operation of the emission system on 1996 and newer vehicles with a scan tool. Although Kansas does not require these types of test, it is always a good idea to ensure you are properly maintaining your vehicle for the the benefit of the environment and your wallet. A poorly maintained emission system can cause the vehicle to fail these tests, diminish gas mileage and more.

Call Kessler Automotive right away if your vehicle is having any of the following symptoms:

  • Misfire, pulsation or jerking that changes with engine speed.
  • Exhaust has a steady sputtering sound at idle or low speed.
  • Sometimes your vehicle may display symptoms like a foul smell.
