Emissions and Smog Testing

Emissions and Smog Testing

At Red's Auto Repair LLC, we help our Spring City customers' cars run as cleanly and efficiently as they possibly can. We provide a range of emissions testing services to ensure that your car is running and driving its best, as well as complying with all local smog regulations. Should a problem arise with any of your vehicle's emission systems, we provide the parts and expertise to get you back on the road. Red's Auto Repair LLC can replace mufflers/catalytic converters, refill diesel exhaust fluid, and make sure the full range of filters in your vehicle's exhaust system are working perfectly.

Regulators understand that older cars simply can't meet modern emissions standards without extensive modifications. For newer cars however, passing a smog test is a requirement of road legality. Call us at 610-948-0555 to learn more about the emissions requirements for your vehicle.

Emissions testing (also known as smog testing) is a vital part of the maintenance of your vehicle. E-tests provide your mechanic with important information about your car's engine and exhaust system. If important components, like your car's catalytic converter aren't working properly, the car isn't running as it was intended to by the manufacturer. Inefficiency costs you extra money in fuel and does unnecessary harm to the planet. Emissions testing can also affect the value of a vehicle you're trying to sell; while you can still sell a car without a valid e-test certification, you'll get more money for one that has passed the test.

There are several reasons that a car may fail its emissions test. There may be a problem with the vehicle's fuel system adding too much fuel to the air-fuel ratio required for proper combustion within the cylinders of the car's engine. This is known as "running rich" and results in the smell of gasoline from fuel passing through the engine and exhaust system without being fully burnt. Causes of this issue range from faulty fuel injectors to issues with the engine's control computer. There may also be problems with oxygen sensors or the vehicle's ignition system. At Red's Auto Repair LLC, we use a complete set of diagnostic equipment to determine the problem and fix it quickly, explaining every step of the process to you, our valued patron. Call us at 610-948-0555 or send us an email to arrange a health check for your car's emissions system today!

Being frustrated with the service and prices I have incurred at the local Mercedes Benz dealers, I decided to bring my two Mercedes to Kevin. I can not over emphasize what a pleasant, productive experience this has been for me. Kevin , the owner of Red's, is honest, trustworthy and extremely capable. He has maintained and repaired my ML350 And S Class sedan for some time. He has all the necessary tools and equipment to properly service my vehicles. His diagnostic skills are exceptional. Equally important is the fact that I am actually saving money bringing my cars to Red's. There are have been several occasions when a reminder popped up in my vehicle alerting me to a potential problem. Kevin has checked the issue and corrected it without charging me. Try doing that at Mercedes Benz. His prices are reasonable, his work is perfection, and most important, you can trust him.

Kevin was awesome! I was in need of a new mechanic because I felt like my current mechanic didn't have time or patience for me. Red's was able to get me in last minute for an inspection, but more than that was the time he invested in showing me the work that needed done to the point that I was able to "get it". I never felt pressured or rushed. Sadly because of the amount of work needing done, I ended up trading in my car for a leased car that is covered under warranty. That means I can't use Red's again, but I can and have referred friends and family there. Fantastic customer service from a knowledgeable mechanic in a beautiful and accommodating shop! 10/10!!
