About 10% of the vehicles that are tested for emissions each year fail the test out of about one million vehicles. Any vehicle, old or new, that has been poorly maintained or has emissions controls that are malfunctioning can emit excess pollution. These vehicles usually emit three to four times more pollution than is specified for new passenger cars. Some of those that fail only need proper tuning prior to being retested to meet emissions standards. If a vehicle fails the emissions test, there is no charge to be retested to meet emissions standards.
Repairs or adjustments to emissions equipment can be made by anybody including the vehicle owner, a technician in a service station, automobile dealership, or a garage mechanic. It is prohibited in Washington State to modify, alter, or disconnect any required pollution control or emissions equipment. The vehicle simply won’t pass the emissions test if the emissions equipment has been modified or removed. The emissions equipment must be repaired or reinstalled.

One of the primary sources of air pollution in Washington State is motor vehicles. The pollution that they cause is linked to health problems such as heart attacks and cancer and also triggers asthma attacks. Over one third of the residents of Washington State have at least one medical condition that is made worse by it or are in an age group that is at risk for health problems from this pollution. In addition to other transportation related sources, motor vehicles also produce almost one half of the greenhouse gas emissions in Washington State. Climate change is the result of these greenhouse gases. In Washington State, the effects of this climate change include further loss of the salmon habitat, reduced water supplies for agriculture and people, increased coastal erosion, increased flooding in the wintertime, low stream flows in the summertime, and reduced snow pack. These are some of the reasons that it is important for vehicle owners to make sure that their vehicles pass the emissions tests or seek Auto Emissions Repair.
