We test for:
Raw Hydrocarbons
Carbon Monoxide
Carbon Dioxide
Nitrogen Oxides
Sulfur Dioxide
Phosphorus
Lead & Heavy Metals

The Federal Government has made changes in our gasoline to eliminate most of them. Also, with a push from federal regulations, we have had to developed ways to test automobile emissions, and that in turn, has helped the automotive manufacturers to develop better, safer emission systems.

Modern vehicle emissions control systems vary somewhat between manufacturers, but they all have the same goal and use many of the same methods. The addition of computerized ignition systems also allows the engine to monitor and adjust itself continuously for greater efficiency.

Today's auto emission controls have reduced carbon monoxide and hydrocarbon emissions by about ninety-six percent (96%) from the days of pre-controled vehicles, (early 1970's).

WHEEL ALIGNMENT

Wheel AlignmentTYPICAL WHEEL ALIGNMENT:

1. Geometric Wheel Alignment: Where only the front wheels are adjusted because the rear wheels are known to be correctly aligned to the centerline of the car, (mostly for older cars).

2. Four Wheel Alignment: Where both front and rear wheels are adjustable. 80% of new car models require this type of alignment, (typical alignment)

3. Compensated Wheel Alignment: Where the rear wheels are known to be misaligned to the geometric centerline. The front wheels are adjusted parallel to the rear wheels with a centered steering box, (damaged chassis).

4. Four Wheel Steer Alignment: Where all wheels are adjustable and all wheels move when the steering wheel is turned. These cars require a special alignment rig in our shop, (like: Dodge Stealth R/T).

The exhaust system is also one of the first engine parts to need repairs or replacement due to the extreme temperatures and proximity to road grime and water puddles. Make sure to have your system properly inspected by the AUTOMOTIVE CLINIC today.

FUEL INJECTION SYSTEMS

FUEL INJECTIONAt the AUTOMOTIVE CLINIC, we understand that the purpose of your car's fuel system is to provide a mixture of fuel and air to the engine in relation to the position of the gas pedal. The air-fuel mixture must be in proportion to the RPM speed and loads the engine is under at the moment. Some major parts of the fuel system include: fuel tank, ventilation lines and fuel cap, emission controls, fuel lines, fuel pump, fuel filter, carburetors or injectors, and intake manifold as well as the fuel gauge, which indicates the amount of fuel in the tank.


RADIATORS & COOLANT

RADIATORYour cars cooling system is a critical engine component. It maintains the metal engine parts operational temperature range, as well as providing heat for special part such as heated intake manifolds and heater cores that warm the passenger compartment.

Due to the high operational pressures of hot anti-freeze liquids, it is necessary to maintain proper coolant system integrity checks of the hoses and clamps as well as the radiator itself.
