PA State Inspections & Emissions Testing

The state of Pennsylvania has a mandatory state vehicle inspection program. You must have your vehicle inspected yearly for safety and emissions. The safety inspection is to keep you and the other drivers on the road safe. The emissions tests are to help cut down on vehicle related air pollution.

There are different regulations for each class of vehicle. They are as follows: 

  • Car or light-duty truck: These systems will be inspected to be sure they are complete and in safe working order: brake system, body and chassis, defrost, electrical systems, exhaust systems, fuel systems, glass and mirrors, horn, lighting system, odometer, steering, suspension, tires, and windshield wipers and washing system. Your vehicle will also be checked to be sure any required emissions systems or units have not been tampered with or removed. 
  • All Other Trucks and Buses: The following systems will be inspected: brakes, body and chassis, defrost, electrical systems, exhaust systems, fuel systems, glass and mirrors, horn, lighting system, odometer, steering, suspension, tires, and windshield wipers and wiper fluid system. 
  • Recreational, Semi, and Utility Trailers: These systems will be inspected: brakes, body and chassis, electrical system, any glass, lights, suspension, and tires.

The Pennsylvania emissions inspection program was developed by the Departments of Transportation and Environmental Protection with input from the public and the various representatives of the auto industry.

If required for your vehicle, the emissions inspection is due once a year at the same time or before your annual safety inspection. Franconia Auto Repair uses the current state certified testing equipment and procedures to conduct the state required emissions testing.


Full Service Lube, Oil, & Filter Change

Most technicians agree that changing the engine oil and filter on a regular basis is the single most important maintenance service for your car, truck or SUV. And most technicians agree that it should be changed about every 3,000 miles if you are driving in what are defined as severe conditions. Severe conditions are stop-and-go traffic, city driving, lots of short trips—or what the majority of drivers face today.

Franconia Auto Repair's services includes: Lubricate chassis; changing oil and oil filter; checking all fluids, filters, belts and hoses; checking tire pressures, oil door locks and hinges; and performing the 27 point safety inspection to ensure that all major systems on your car are operating properly.

Engine Maintenance & Repair

If something’s going wrong with your car or engine, your onboard computer can tell you about it. If the computer senses something is wrong with one of your car’s systems, it will turn on a dashboard light, like “ABS Brakes” or something less specific, like “Check Engine.” Some people try to disregard their "Check Engine" light. And some have even gone as far as disabling it and that could be a costly move.

The best thing to do when your check engine light appears is to bring your vehicle to Franconia Auto Repair!
Franconia Auto Repair has the latest diagnostic equipment to identify what part of your engine or vehicle needs service. Often, it has something to do with increased emissions.
Once we determine what the problem is we’ll carefully review with you what (if any) work needs to be done and exactly how much it will cost. Of course, the work we do is of the highest quality. All of our technicians have been thoroughly trained and tested on the latest diagnostic equipment.

We deal with diesel engines too!
