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.
