For cars registered in the 13-county metro Atlanta area, any ‘96 or later gasoline-powered car or light truck with a ‘Check Engine’ or ‘Service Engine Soon’ light illuminated will automatically fail the Georgia emissions inspection. Quantum Mechanics is fully-equipped to diagnose and repair emissions control systems on all of the German and Japanese brands we service. However, we recommend getting this done well in advance of needing a passing emissions test for several reasons– there may be special-order parts required to complete the repair, several warm-up cycles of the engine, or extensive test driving may be required in order to achieve vehicle ‘readiness’ for emissions testing. With enough time allotted, we’ll be glad to take care of getting the emissions test certificate for your vehicle after the repair itself!
