California State Inspection in Corona, CA at Larry H. Miller Toyota Corona

Each year, your Toyota must undergo a mandatory California State Vehicle Safety Inspection, which involves a biennial emissions test, or "smog check" to measure the proper levels of carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons, and nitrogen oxide emitted by your vehicle, among other important systems as well. Our service center at Larry H. Miller Toyota Corona carries a full certification to perform California state inspections, so let us go over a few things to keep in mind before your CA state inspection.

What to Know Before Your Toyota Undergoes Inspection

The state of California requires all vehicles undergo a mandatory biennial emissions test to ensure they continue to run efficiently without emitting excessive gases harmful to the Earth's atmosphere or to the environment in general. In order to best test emissions, the following systems will undergo inspection for a smog check:

  • Gas Cap Pressure: to ensure hydrocarbon vapors remain in the fuel tank and no fuel leaks.
  • On-Board Diagnostics: If you Toyota originated from 1996-present, onboard diagnostic systems will undergo checking for malfunctions.
  • Single Idle Speed: In this test, our service center team places a probe in your exhaust system to test the steam from the tailpipe. Make sure no leaks exist in your exhaust system.

If you drive a Toyota hybrid/electric car or a newer vehicle in-general, you may be exempt from this test. However, in any case, you should keep these crucial systems in mind as they will also undergo inspection during the state inspection:
