Diesel Smog Check Program                       

The diesel engine smog check is a fairly new part of the California Smog Check Program. In recent years the State of California has determined that particulate matter is a severe danger to human health. Diesel engines share a large part of the responsibility for the particulate matter. California adopted policy to help reduce particulate matter and the diesel smog check inspection was born out of this policy. The Bureau of Automotive Repair is responsible for implementing and monitoring the diesel smog check program.


Diesel Smog Check Procedures

The procedures for performing a smog check on diesel engine vehicle are very similar as to the procedures on a gasoline engine. The main difference is that all diesels are tested on the BAR OIS machine and do not undergo emission sampling of the tail pipe. A visual, smoke, and OBD test are performed in order to ensure your diesel is emission compliant during the smog check inspection. The Smog Stop will cover the diesel smog check inspection procedures in depth to you are informed when it comes time for you to obtain your diesel smog check.
