Issues having your car pass emissions?

Here is what they check when you bring your car in for a E-Test.

Pre-test check

If the inspector finds any of the following issues, it must be corrected before the emissions test can continue, as it could lead to injury and/or the test equipment may not work properly:

  • missing catalytic converter and/or gas cap
  • defects in the fuel filler pipe
  • problems with the on-board computer system that would prevent the vehicle from being tested
  • visible smoke coming from the tailpipe
  • any problems the inspector believes would prevent the vehicle from being tested safely

You will receive a pre-test check rejection form, if the vehicle cannot be tested. You will need to return for the test, once any required repairs are made.

The actual test entails 

Hooking up device monitor to check if there are any codes reading pertaining to the emissions, you car will fail your e-test if that check engine light is on.

Then they hook up the tail pipe test to see if there is any leaks with your exhaust that could be dangerous to the public and environment.

What they don’t want you to know 

If your car is over 20 years old and your repair to get the test is over 300$ you could be lucky enough to get a conditional pass on your vehicle. They can give you, your slip with the information that its a conditional and you can get this years sticker.drive-clean

 

Snow is Here

While we were all trying to pretend the snow wasn’t going to come, it showed its face at rush hour traffic when no one in Toronto was expecting it, turning that 10 minute drive home into grid lock traffic for over an hour. All i could think about last night as all i could see ahead of me was brake lights and snow, was thank god i have my winter tires on, changed my brakes and new wipers!!

So don’t wait a minute longer thinking winter will go away if we don’t talk about it!

Winter is here and Dignity Auto is on your side!

Beware of mobile fueling trend

Mobile fueling

San Francisco is starting to have a trend of illegal fuel distribution businesses starting to come out. What is happening is the illegal companies are buying large amounts of fuel at low costs, waiting for the prices to rise. Then selling the fuel at the prior low cost not available at any of the major gas retailers. This is of course the response anytime people believe they are being over charged for something.

However according to the fire laws in Ontario and San Francisco this trend is dangerous and illegal. Mobile fuel up places need to be shut down before the gain momentum as in selling fuel illegally they are not taking the proper protocols for safe fuel transfer.

If you know of any mobile fuel businesses in Toronto you are urged to contact the police department at:  416-808-2222 to report them
