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.
