Is your car up to the required emissions standards? Here at Russo’s Auto Service, the number one Oak Park auto center, some of our most valuable services involve our emission work. Emissions refer to the level of carbon monoxide that is released when your car is running. A problem that we often see in our clients related to emissions is when gravel or other sorts of debris are kicked up from the bottom of the road, hitting the underside of the car. When this happens, the exhaust pipe can easily become punctured or dented.
When the exhaust pipe becomes damaged in these ways, fumes can leak out of your car before reaching the exhaust system. If you ever notice a strange smell coming from your car, your exhaust system might have been damaged, and your car could be emitted carbon monoxide. Breathing in carbon monoxide is poisonous and quite dangerous, so you should always visit our Oak Park auto center for an emissions evaluation if you think this might be occurring. Emissions inspections are also part of legal inspections depending on the state you live in, because they are an important safety precaution both for you and other drivers on the road. The experts at Russo’s Auto Service will always pay special attention to emissions to make sure that your car is operating safely.
