Emissions Repairs

Since the mid-1990s, all vehicles have a system that monitors the emission system.  [See OBDII] This system stores data related to the emissions, and when a car starts to pollute the system it turns on a check engine light.  BA Auto Care checks the codes and monitor data to track down the problem and recommend repairs.  For vehicles manufactured before the 1990s, we use a four gas emissions analyzer and other test equipment to check out the emissions system.  Importantly, our services include repairs for vehicles that don't pass the Maryland Vehicle Emissions Inspection Program (VEIP). Read more about our emissions & exhaust services here.
