Smog checks are required in states or areas with historically high air pollution, or smog. That’s why states and many counties/jurisdictions have their own testing requirements. So, while it may seem like a hassle, smog checks help to ensure that the air you breathe is clean. And that’s a good thing! We make the process as quick and simple as possible. If you need an emissions test or smog check, stop by your nearest Kwik Kar location today!


If the check engine light illuminates, it will either blink or remain constantly illuminated, depending on the problem. A blinking light indicates a problem that needs immediate attention. Either way, you should have the vehicle checked by a mechanic. A car diagnostic test provides a quick and accurate assessment of your vehicle. Technicians will scan your vehicle’s onboard computer, document any diagnostic trouble codes, and check for service notifications issued by your vehicle’s manufacturer.
