In Illinois, some vehicles are required to have an emissions test at a state test center before the license plates will be renewed for that year. The purpose of these tests, particularly in older cars, is to test for harmful emissions (gases) that may be entering the environment. If a vehicle doesn’t pass this test, repairs will be needed at a qualified repair center. Keith’s Car Care can perform those repairs so that your vehicle will pass the test and you can keep on driving it.
How do you know if this may be a problem? If your check engine light is on in the vehicle, that is the first indication of a problem. There are over 50 reasons that your check engine (SES) light may be on. Typically, your vehicle will not pass if the light is on or has been turned off.
