Smog Check

Star Certified Smog Station in Marysville, CA

Smog Check in Yuba City, CA

The state of California requires most vehicles to undergo a smog check once every two years. When it nears time for your vehicle to receive its biennial smog test, visit GM Specialist.

We're a Star Certified Smog Test and Repair Station in Yuba City, CA. When you're notified that you need a smog check - and especially if you're told you need a STAR station to perform it - contact our team. We're not far from Marysville, CA or Plumas Lake, CA.

Introduced in the 1970s as part of the Clean Air Act, smog checks are especially beneficial to California. With so many vehicles on the road, it's important to find viable ways to preserve our air and environment. Regular emissions testing reduces smog, keeps pollutants out of the air, and contributes to a healthier state.

Smog Check at GM Specialist

During a smog check, our team will test your vehicle’s exhaust system to ensure it is not emitting too many pollutants or too much smog into the environment. Equipped with special tools designed for emissions testing, we will measure the amount of emissions your vehicle produces and compare the amount to California’s standards.

Smog checks are required for many CA vehicles, including:

  • Most vehicles manufactured after 1997.
  • Diesel vehicles with a Gross Vehicle Weight (GVWR) less than 14,000 lbs.
  • Natural gas powered vehicles less than 14,000 lbs

If your vehicle needs a smog check, put our team to work. We’ll carefully check your car’s emissions and help you determine whether repairs are necessary.
