How is the smog test different for 1999 and older vehicles?

1999 model year and older vehicles, and others requiring the BAR-97 (ASM) inspection. The test takes longer than a standard smog test, typically 30 mins plus account administrative duties which the technician might need to perform.
California’s smog check procedure requires all 1999 & older vehicles undergo a tailpipe emissions inspection to measure harmful pollutant output from the tailpipe, a visual inspection for present and properly installed emissions components, a functional test to ensure the proper operation of various emission components; and as part of the functional test, an OBD II computer diagnostic check.

Benefits of getting your older vehicle tested at our STAR Certified Test-Only station

Auto Smog Roseville can handle any year, size, make, or model vehicle for smog check. We do ask that our customers with older vehicles call ahead and schedule an appointment as some models can take considerable time and can substantially increase wait times for you and that of others.

What do I do if my vehicle fails the smog test? 

Your smog check is a requirement by the DMV for vehicle registration in the State of California. If your vehicle fails the smog check you can repair the faulty components. Your DMV registration can’t be renewed if your smog check fails. Here are a list of a few car mechanics near us that you can go to to get your vehicle fixed in order for it to pass the Smog test.
