Common high HC, CO and NOx emission problems - Your vehicle may have failed the emissions test portion of the smog check inspection for several different reasons. Three emissions test results are measured and required to determine whether a vehicle passes or fails the emissions test inspection. Learn about the top causes for high Hydrocarbon, Carbon Monoxide, and Nitrous Oxide, emissions results. A passing emissions test insures only completion of one portion of the three independent tests required to complete the entire smog inspection process. Download our FREE Illustrated Top 10 Smog Check Failures poster in PDF.

A. HC - Hydrocarbons          B. CO - Carbon Monoxide          C. NO - Nitrous Oxide

 

Consumer Assistance Program - The California smog check Consumer Assistance Program (CAP) provides financial assistance for qualified consumers whose vehicles fail their biennial smog check at certified California smog centers. Vehicle owners can receive up to $500 financial assistance toward smog check related repairs to help their failing vehicles pass the smog check inspection. Approved applicants must have their vehicles repaired by a STAR (CAP) certified smog repair station. STAR smog test stations are licensed smog check centers that are independently owned and under contract with the State of California to perform government assisted smog repair. There are two ways to qualify for smog repair assistance. Once approved the BAR will send you a list of California emissions test centers authorized to perform CAP repairs. Sponsored by the California Bureau of Automotive Repair.
 

OBD II (On-Board Diagnostics II - Functional Inspection) is a on-board self-diagnostic smog check computer; required for all California vehicles manufactured after 1996. OBDII vehicles have the capability to diagnose virtually every smog check component that can affect emission results. Smog check components such as the oxygen sensor (O2), catalytic converter (CAT), engine coolant temperature (ECT) sensors as well as several others are inspected by the smog technician during the visual inspection and are checked by the OBDII computer for proper operation and to insure fuel is being burned thoroughly. If a smog check problem or malfunction is detected, the OBD II computer will illuminate a warning light on the vehicle instrument panel known as the Check Engine light or Service Engine Soon light, and record an OBDII trouble code. Very often you may not notice an engine problem. This is due to the OBDII computer operating under pre-programmed data rather then real time. The problem exists but the engine ignores the defective sensors input and provides its own manufacturer programmed data.

To avoid causing further damage to the smog check emission system/s the Check Engine light should be diagnosed as soon as possible by a repair certified smog check station, emission test center or smog service center. The OBDII system will store malfunction information so the smog check repair technician can find and fix the problem. Smog stations are required to have OBDII trouble code retrieval tools or scanners at their smog station.

New California vehicle laws for 2014 -

Electronic devices - AB 1536 clarifies existing law by allowing drivers to dictate, send, or listen to text-based communications while driving as long as they do so using technology specifically designed and configured to allow fully voice-operated, hands-free operation. This clarification makes the texting-while-driving ban consistent with the law that prohibits use of cell phones while driving unless the phone is used hands-free. A clarification of California’s distracted driving law has made it illegal for young drivers under 18 to use voice-activated texting, handheld, or hands-free calling.

Bicycle Safety - On Sept. 16, 2014, California will require drivers to stay at least three feet away when passing bicyclists.

BAR OIS DAD Smog Machine -Beginning near the middle of 2014 the BAR will no longer require 2000 model and newer vehicles undergo a tailpipe emissions test. The new OIS test will only require OBD II testing. AB 2289. The program will now take better advantage of a vehicle's OBD II technology by eliminating tailpipe testing and instead using the vehicle's own emissions monitoring system. This system has saved consumers time and money in 22 other states. More information to follow in the coming months.

Temporary Operating Permit - AB 2241: Limits the issuance of temporary operating permits when a biennial smog certificate is still outstanding after the registration has expired. Proof that the vehicle has failed its most recent smog check at a certified smog center must be presented and a $50 service fee is required. The service fee can be waived for income eligible applicants under certain conditions, and applicants in the consumer repair assistance program CAP process. Permits issued under these circumstances will be limited to one in a 2 year period and valid only until 60 days after the vehicle expiration date or 60 days after the vehicle is removed from planned non operation status.

Motorcycle Smog Check Proposal Dropped - SB 435: California State Senator Fran Pavley introduced legislation in February 2009 that would have required motorcycles of model year 2000 and newer to undergo California's smog check program at a smog center. SB435 has now been dropped. SB 435 has been amended to authorize police officers to ticket bikers who have removed catalytic converters, instead of requiring the emissions testing. The senate approved the amended bill which now goes to the state assembly. The cost of policing the measure, in relation to the miniscule amount of pollution a motorcycle puts out, was considered when deciding on amending the bill.
