VIC'S AUTO CENTER - Mike KeelerIs it time to have your vehicle emissions tested by the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ)?

The Vehicle Inspection Program of Oregon DEQ maintains a list of recognized automotive repair shops in the greater Portland metro area -- including Vic’s Auto Center -- at www.deq.state.or.us/

To make the list, a shop must demonstrate having the required diagnostic equipment and must employ at least one currently certified A.S.E. (Automotive Service Excellence) technician performing emission diagnoses, related adjustments and repairs.

DEQ vehicle emission tests lets motorists know when the pollution control devices on their vehicle malfunction. Any vehicle that has malfunctioning emission controls or is poorly maintained may emit up to three to four times more pollution than standards allow for new cars. You must pass a re-test before you can receive your DEQ Certificate of Compliance and renew your DMV vehicle registration.

Your Emissions Test Report provides data that can be useful to the person making the repairs on your vehicle.

There are dozens of reasons why your vehicle may fail the test, such as too much Carbon Monoxide, which could mean there’s a dirty air cleaner or air filter; contaminated oil; a stuck choke or malfunctioning fuel injectors.

Excessive Hydrocarbons may mean there’s a misfiring engine; faulty spark plugs, rotor, ignition coil or distributor caps; or a malfunctioning vacuum device.

Vic’s Auto Center knows them all. Vic’s technicians will find the problem, repair it and get you on your way.

HASSON COMPANY REALTORS - Mike Hall Looking at homes online and finding either poor-quality photos or sparse details, I cringe, knowing that the agent (and maybe the seller) doesn’t understand or care what kind of impression is being made.

In the internet age, with a tidal wave of information and shorter attention spans, making a first impression has never been more important.  With big dollars at stake, your Realtor should go all out for appeal in pictures and words, partnering with you to capture the best of your home.

A few things to consider:

Beyond basic attributes (such as four-bedroom, 3,000 square feet), set a scene for the buyer to experience what it’s like to be in your house. What will he or she see and feel when entering the home? Is there a view from the living room and if so, of what? Will they feel radiant-heat floors in the master bath?

Your photos may be lovely, but the visuals won’t tell the whole story. In the kitchen, is that a convection oven? Are those counters granite or composite? How big is the pantry? If there’s a nearby laundry room, say so.

What are the reasons you bought the home? They should be captured in pictures, words, or both.

Marketing your home with words and pictures isn’t rocket science, but there’s a huge difference between slapping a listing together, and going all out for first impressions.  Taking the time to do it right is essential.
