Check Engine Light On? Failed Smog?
No problem! Val & Mike’s Auto Service is an official Smog Test and Repair Station. One of the first licensed Smog Repair Only Stations in Orange County approved by the Bureau of Automotive Repair (B.A.R.) to diagnose and repair check engine lights and smog repair issues.
As of January 1, 2013 the California smog laws changed. Only Smog Repair Stations licensed by the B.A.R. are authorized to repair vehicles that have failed smog. As of June 2014 our California Smog Program made additional changes simplifying the smog process for authorized Smog Repair Stations to become Smog Test and Repair with the new DAD Equipment.
You will find with our 40 plus years of experience, combined with our ASE Master Technicians we will provide you the peace-of-mind that your check engine light or smog failure will be diagnosed and repaired with our up-to-date equipment and knowledge to cost effectively solve your vehicle’s smog problem.
Loose Gas Cap
Fuel vapors leaking out and can imbalance the fuel system.
When this fails it reduces the sensors ability to change the oxygen fuel mixture. A faulty sensor reduces your gas mileage and increases emissions.
In theory shouldn’t fail if regular maintenance is kept up (i.e. replace spark plugs and failed O2 Sensors). Symptom of a faulty catalytic convertor is poor gas mileage and won’t accelerate.
Mass Airflow Sensor
Usually fails because air filters are not replaced regularly. Function of the Mass Airflow sensor is to tell the car’s computer to add the proper amount of fuel based on the air coming into the engine.
Spark Plugs and Wires
A maintenance that should be done to prevent potential check engine lights and failed smog.
