At Accu Auto Care LLC, we help our Hagerstown customers' cars run as cleanly and efficiently as they possibly can. We provide a range of emissions testing services to ensure that your car is running and driving its best, as well as complying with all local smog regulations. Should a problem arise with any of your vehicle's emission systems, we provide the parts and expertise to get you back on the road. Accu Auto Care LLC can replace mufflers/catalytic converters, refill diesel exhaust fluid, and make sure the full range of filters in your vehicle's exhaust system are working perfectly.
Regulators understand that older cars simply can't meet modern emissions standards without extensive modifications. For newer cars however, passing a smog test is a requirement of road legality. Call us at 301-665-9180 to learn more about the emissions requirements for your vehicle.
Emissions testing (also known as smog testing) is a vital part of the maintenance of your vehicle. E-tests provide your mechanic with important information about your car's engine and exhaust system. If important components, like your car's catalytic converter aren't working properly, the car isn't running as it was intended to by the manufacturer. Inefficiency costs you extra money in fuel and does unnecessary harm to the planet. Emissions testing can also affect the value of a vehicle you're trying to sell; while you can still sell a car without a valid e-test certification, you'll get more money for one that has passed the test.
There are several reasons that a car may fail its emissions test. There may be a problem with the vehicle's fuel system adding too much fuel to the air-fuel ratio required for proper combustion within the cylinders of the car's engine. This is known as "running rich" and results in the smell of gasoline from fuel passing through the engine and exhaust system without being fully burnt. Causes of this issue range from faulty fuel injectors to issues with the engine's control computer. There may also be problems with oxygen sensors or the vehicle's ignition system. At Accu Auto Care LLC, we use a complete set of diagnostic equipment to determine the problem and fix it quickly, explaining every step of the process to you, our valued patron. Call us at 301-665-9180 or send us an email to arrange a health check for your car's emissions system today!
What our clients are saying about us
We have established longterm and stable partnerships with various clients thanks to our excellence in solving their automotive needs!
We took our car to Accu Auto Care for some routine maintenance. They completed the service in one day and their price was competitive. They even followed up a few days later to make sure everything was good with the car.
Eugene and the team at Accu Auto Care make sure you get back on the road in a safe vehicle. "Care" is the heart of how they do business. I had both family cars break down at the same time, as I was moving to Hagerstown. The crew at Accu Auto Care made me feel right at home. They went the extra mile to diagnose problems, honestly present options, and provide the repairs to keep both cars road worthy during my move. I have found my new neighborhood mechanic!
