Emissions and Smog Testing

At Retro Auto Works, we help our Pottstown customers' cars run as cleanly and efficiently as they possibly can. We provide a range of emissions testing services to ensure that your car is running and driving its best, as well as complying with all local smog regulations. Should a problem arise with any of your vehicle's emission systems, we provide the parts and expertise to get you back on the road. Retro Auto Works can replace mufflers/catalytic converters, refill diesel exhaust fluid, and make sure the full range of filters in your vehicle's exhaust system are working perfectly.

Regulators understand that older cars simply can't meet modern emissions standards without extensive modifications. For newer cars however, passing a smog test is a requirement of road legality. Call us at 610-323-4111 to learn more about the emissions requirements for your vehicle.

Emissions testing (also known as smog testing) is a vital part of the maintenance of your vehicle. E-tests provide your mechanic with important information about your car's engine and exhaust system. If important components, like your car's catalytic converter aren't working properly, the car isn't running as it was intended to by the manufacturer. Inefficiency costs you extra money in fuel and does unnecessary harm to the planet. Emissions testing can also affect the value of a vehicle you're trying to sell; while you can still sell a car without a valid e-test certification, you'll get more money for one that has passed the test.

There are several reasons that a car may fail its emissions test. There may be a problem with the vehicle's fuel system adding too much fuel to the air-fuel ratio required for proper combustion within the cylinders of the car's engine. This is known as "running rich" and results in the smell of gasoline from fuel passing through the engine and exhaust system without being fully burnt. Causes of this issue range from faulty fuel injectors to issues with the engine's control computer. There may also be problems with oxygen sensors or the vehicle's ignition system. At Retro Auto Works, we use a complete set of diagnostic equipment to determine the problem and fix it quickly, explaining every step of the process to you, our valued patron. Call us at 610-323-4111 or send us an email to arrange a health check for your car's emissions system today!

    Although Retro Auto Works has only been open for a short period of time I have already used them twice. Once to get new breaks and another to get my shocks replaced. Justin was professional, fair, and had my car ready quickly. I'm very pleased and would recommend anyone to go to Retro. I will definitely continue to use them for all my future services!

    I went here because my alternator was messed up and he found other things that went wrong that I thought was already fixed by another mechanic. Shane, the owner, had everything done the next day. Very professional, clean work area, and parts with warranties. I'd recommend him anytime! Thanks Shane!

    For the first time in over 20 years I was responsible for getting my vehicle inspected. My goal was to discontinue going to the dealer for service. After reading the views for Retro Auto Works I decided to give them a try. I Had my car inspected and services recommended by Honda. I was very pleased with my experience.
