Another question we often hear is, “How can I make sure my car will pass emissions?” If your vehicle is a 1996 model or newer and the check engine light is on it will not pass emissions in Rutherford County.

No matter what the failure, it simply will not be granted a smiley face on the test sheet. Another not-so-widely known fact is if the check engine light does not illuminate when the key is turned to the on position before the vehicle is started, it will also fail.

At DR. Automotive, our ASE certified technicians can correct whatever issues are presently preventing your vehicle from passing the test to get valid tags. A detailed examination of the patient will allow us to prescribe the proper remedy for your emissions testing troubles.
