What will this report explain? Our ASE certified VIR (Vehicle Inspection Report) diagnosis will help you understand your vehicle's smog check results.
California law requires vehicle owners receive a VIR from the smog station where their vehicle was inspected. The VIR is an invaluble tool in diagnosing your vehicle's smog check results.
Our report will begin by explaining the abbrevations listed on your VIR. If your vehicle failed for high emissions, we will cover the possible faults which cause an increase in emissions of HC, CO, & NO.
If your check engine light or service engine soon light is on, and trouble codes are present, we will explain those OBD II trouble codes as well.
Why do I need this report? To better prepare you in communicating with a smog check technician if you happen to need smog check repairs, or if your vehicle passes, to get a general overview of its emission system and efficiency.
How important is my VIR? Your VIR contains invaluable information regarding the presence and proper connection of required emission components, engine diagnostic codes and freeze frame data stored in your vehicle's Engine Control Unit (ECU), results of functional tests conducted during the smog inspection, and most importantly, an accurate account of your vehicle's exhaust emission results during the smog test. VIRs are commonly used by smog check repair technicians in assisting the diagnosis of smog check results.
