Our expert service includes comprehensive checks and repairs of exhaust systems, catalytic converters, and sensors, guaranteeing your car runs cleaner, performs better, and adheres to environmental standards, making our service an integral part of responsible car ownership and environmental stewardship.

Common emission issues in vehicles often stem from various components malfunctioning. Some of these include:

sensor

Faulty Oxygen Sensors

These sensors measure the amount of oxygen in the exhaust. If they fail, the engine computer can’t accurately manage the air-fuel mixture, leading to increased emissions.

catalytic-converter

Catalytic Converter Failure

The catalytic converter reduces harmful emissions. If it’s not working properly, your vehicle will produce more pollutants and may fail an emissions test.

Evaporative Emission System (EVAP) Leaks

Evaporative Emission System (EVAP) Leaks

The EVAP system captures fuel vapors before they escape into the atmosphere. Leaks in this system can increase emissions.

Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) Valve Issues

Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) Valve Issues

This valve reduces nitrogen oxide emissions. If it’s clogged or malfunctioning, it can lead to increased emissions and engine performance problems.

microchip

Malfunctioning Mass Airflow Sensor (MAF)

The MAF sensor measures the amount of air entering the engine for proper fuel mixture. A faulty sensor can result in increased emissions and poor engine performance.

ignition

Faulty Spark Plugs or Ignition Coils

These components are essential for efficient combustion. Misfires due to faulty spark plugs or coils can increase emissions.

Old or Contaminated Engine Oil

Old or Contaminated Engine Oil

Dirty engine oil can lead to increased internal engine friction, reducing efficiency and increasing emissions.

Worn Piston Rings or Valve Seals

Worn Piston Rings or Valve Seals

These issues can lead to oil burning in the combustion chamber, contributing to higher emissions

Poor Fuel Quality

Poor Fuel Quality

Low-quality or contaminated fuel can negatively impact engine combustion efficiency, leading to higher emissions.

Loose or Damaged Fuel Cap

Loose or Damaged Fuel Cap

A damaged fuel cap can cause fuel vapors to leak, contributing to increased evaporative emissions.
