Emission Diagnosis & Repairs

The emission control system on your vehicle is important for keeping our local environment as clean as possible. It’s a regulated check and drivers are notified on their vehicle’s tab registration forms as to whether an emissions check is required that year in order to renew the tabs.

If your vehicle fails an emissions test, we can test to find out why it did, and then also perform the needed emission repair.

Not every auto repair shop provides these services,
but we definitely do. It’s a convenience to our customers here in the West Seattle, Burien & White Center area, but it also gives us more information for our customer files about the overall care during the life of the vehicle with each customer. We get the whole view of the car’s care and running by offering diagnostic services for failed emissions tests and the needed repairs.

If your vehicle fails an emissions test, it means your car or truck not only gives off higher emissions but may also run improperly and lose potential efficiency in its gas mileage.

The investment you make on your car, truck, SUV or hybrid is big. We respect that.
And keeping your investment, your car’s safety and the emissions in check is where we want to serve.

Schedule an appointment & we’ll run an emission diagnostic test for you on your vehicle.

Took in my Mazda for a 20k mile tune-up and had the most transparent experience with a mechanic I've ever had. Easy to work with, friendly staff, all that good stuff. I have a car that has relatively uncommon oil (0W-20) and within an hour of me dropping it off for service they called me up and told me they'd have to go and get some and how it would affect the cost of repair. This wasn't a surprise to me, but they're the first place that's actually given me a heads up. In any case, good and timely service at a reasonable cost. Definitely give them a try if you need service in West Seattle.

Everyone at Tom's is a pleasure to work with: they're good listeners and generous problem solvers. They're clear about the repair work they suggest, they offer a range of options when that's appropriate, and their prices are fair. They also try to get you in as quickly as possible, sometimes immediately. I remain a grateful customer after 30 years!

This business has us as a customer for life! We brought in our car after the "Check Engine" light came on. The techs determined we need a new water pump, an estimated $1,100 job. But they went one big step further! They discovered the manufacturer is offering a FREE repair of the job under a special coverage warranty. How many businesses would genuinely pass on a job like this, more concerned with saving a customer money. I have heard great things about Tom's Automotive. I am pleased to add my story to the positive reviews! Thanks all!
