Prompt Smog Testing

An emissions test must be completed every two years, as part of your registration renewal process. When your vehicle isn't performing at its most efficient, engine emissions testing will reveal if your vehicle is emitting pollutants into the air.

Our large and well-equipped location allows us to offer rapid turnaround times limiting your visit to twenty to thirty minutes. We'll affix measuring equipment to your vehicle to assess both idle and accelerating emissions and measure the quantity of carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, hydrocarbons, and oxygen released.

Allow us to streamline your vehicle's registration renewal process with our timely smog check inspections.

Computerized Equipment for Accurate Smog Checks

For the most precise and accurate results, we use state-of-the-art measuring equipment for our emissions tests.

Sometimes a vehicle may fail the emissions test. If your vehicle doesn’t meet the passing requirements, don’t panic. Unfortunately, not every vehicle passes an emissions test.

Emissions Testing in Avondale, Goodyear and Litchfield Park

Smog Check inspections monitor vehicle emissions and determine whether they are in excess of an acceptable environmental safety standard. Smog Check programs are part of a commitment towards maintaining and improving air quality. As a certified Smog Test and Repair center, Cien Motor Werks is authorized to perform Smog checks that meet the standards required for vehicle registration.

How Often Do I Need a Smog Test?

For most people, emissions tests do not come up very often. Smog Checks are now mandatory when renewing the registration for your vehicle. Once a Smog Certificate has been issued, you may officially register your vehicle within 90 days after passing a Smog Check.

What is a Smog Test?

A smog check procedure ensures that your vehicle is not contributing to the smog in the air. In other words, it’s necessary for the greater good of the environment. Smog checking is a relatively quick process and only takes 20 to about 30 minutes. It’ll make sure your car isn’t releasing extra pollutant emissions, and if it is, we’ll just fix the problem for you! We’ll make sure your vehicle runs smoothly and that you have all the peace of mind you need to stay focused on the road ahead.

Where Can I Get a Smog Test?

The paperwork for some vehicles requires testing exclusively at a STAR center testing station. If your registration documents do not mention the STAR program and you need a Smog Check performed, call Cien Motor Werks today to schedule an appointment with one of our authorized technicians.

What If My Vehicle Fails a Smog Test?

Only a certified general auto mechanic can repair your vehicle if it has failed a Smog test inspection. Cien Motor Werks mechanics are authorized to diagnose and repair any car, truck, or SUV in order to meet the standards required by the local DMV.

So what do you do next? There are a variety of options to choose from when it comes to a vehicle that has failed a smog test. The first is to think things through and decide whether your automobile is worth repairing. If your car is on its last legs and has been causing you to spend big bucks on tiny repairs, then it might be time to say goodbye. Retiring a vehicle is never easy to do, but if the expenses outweigh the results then you just might have to do that. If retiring your car is not an option, then you can have it repaired and retested by our licensed smog check repair technician.
