Phoenix AZ Emissions Repair Services
Arizona state laws, as well as the federal government, have put emissions standards into place, but many drivers are taking emissions very seriously, even if they aren’t required to – yet. Besides the fact that it is mandated by law, there are a lot of good reasons to have keep your vehicle emissions in check:
- Better fuel economy
- Longer time between oil changes
- Increased performance
- Less impact on the environment
Chelsee’s AC & Brake Emporeum can guarantee that you enjoy all of these benefits when you choose us as your Phoenix emissions specialists!
It’s a good idea to stay ahead of the curve on issues that affect the environment, because the government is only apt to get stricter about these things rather than more lenient.
Before making the repairs you need, we do complete emissions testing, as well as checking connected systems like the fuel injection system and all connected sensors.
There are various emissions testing procedures. Depending on the year model of your vehicle, Chelsee’s AC & Brake Emporeum will use the one that is most effective for determining emissions issues. For vehicles built after 1996 can usually be tested with on-board diagnostics, but older vehicles – those with a model year between 1981 and 1995 – usually have to have more complex, hands-on testing done.
Either way, our staff is fully trained in the necessary testing methods for your vehicle!
Some of the individual parts we test include the catalytic converter, oxygen sensors, ERG valve, and the air injection pump. Only when we know each individual part is working correctly can we determine the cause of lowered emissions. The problem could be within the emissions system, or it could be in a related system.
Testing is two-fold. Once we have done the testing phase, we can tell if your emissions system is working properly. Then, if we find that it isn’t, we’ll get to work to determine which part is causing the problem. Some of the common causes for failed emissions testing include the following:
- Damaged catalytic converter – The catalytic converter can get damaged or clogged by high-performance fuel additives or due to regular use over tens of thousands of miles. Repairing it or replacing it can solve your emissions issues.
- Loose or leaking gas cap – An easy problem to remedy, a leaking gas cap can be taken care of by most drivers. A gas cap that seals properly is inexpensive and fixes the problem immediately!
- Evaporative emission control system defect – Many hoses and vents make up this complex system, so it’s important to check them all. Some auto repair garages won’t take the time to find the issue when it relates to the EVAP system because it can be tedious, recommending expensive and needless repairs instead.
- Clogged air filter – In many cases, the air filter could be too dirty and give you a false reading from your emissions test. Chelsee’s AC & Brake Emporeum will check and replace the air filter if needed before testing to ensure accurate results.
- Worn-out spark plugs – Spark plugs should be replaced every 30,000 miles or so. If not, they can lead to increased emissions and pollution from your vehicle, not to mention decreased performance.
- Too rich air-fuel mixture – In some cases, the oxygen sensor may be to blame, but injectors can be the problem here, too.
These things, as well as countless other emissions system issues, are readily repairable by car care experts like Chelsee’s AC & Brake Emporeum. We have most of the parts on hand that we need to make these and other common repairs, so you’ll never have to wait more than a day or two to get the necessary repairs.
If one of these things is the reason for lowered emissions, the good news is that they are pretty easy fixes! Drivers who know their way around an engine may choose to do some of these repairs themselves, but we’re more than happy to make basic and complicated repairs for Phoenix drivers who don’t have the knowledge, tools, or time to do emissions repair work themselves.
We know what most car owners think… emissions repairs just sounds expensive. However, depending on what’s causing the problem, your repair could cost less than $200 including parts and labor, or it could be well over $1,000 if major component, such as the catalytic converter, needs replacing.

There may not be a sign that your emissions are suffering. Some drivers monitor their vehicle’s performance closely, but the majority does not. You might notice smoke coming from the tailpipe or a strong fuel odor, but if these things don’t happen, there’s virtually no way to tell that you need emissions repair.
