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. In addition to its necessity as part of your renewal process, emissions tests are also important as far as preventative maintenance is concerned. Emissions tests are often the first sign of mechanical troubles or repair needs.
After completion of the test, we'll present you with a copy of the results, including pass or fail condition.
You can depend on our diligent testing and results, regardless of the age or condition of your vehicle.

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.

It’ll make sure your car isn’t releasing extra pollutant emissions, and if it is, we’ll just fix the problem for you!

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.
