We have noticed a few common reasons why people fail their emissions testing at John's Auto Care. We want our Meridian customers to be aware of them so that they know what they may need help with:

  • Bad specification of your fuel metering - commonly caused by a faulty carburetor or fuel injection unit
  • Faulty ignition system - defective or worn out spark plugs, old distributor cap, ignition timing issues
  • Vacuum leak - found in the vacuum lines or gaskets
  • Fuel mixture too rich - contaminated oxygen sensor, injectors leaking and too much fuel pressure
  • Malfunctioning air injection system - causes excess hydrocarbons and carbon monoxide result
  • Faulty EVAP (Evaporative Emissions Control System) - leaks in the vacuum hoses and vents, defective purge valves, loose gas caps

Those are the 7 most common reasons we see at John's behind a failed emissions test. We encourage all of our customer in Meridian to come to us before their emissions testing to get their car in shape.
