Muffler, Exhaust & Emissions Control Systems: Managing Your Vehicle’s Emissions

Emissions are regulated by all levels of government for a variety of things that impact the environment; including auto emissions. Which is where our Muffler, Exhaust & Emissions Control Systems services come in to help.

Here in BC – there are multiple expectations in regards to emission – as described here – one of which being Motor Vehicle Emissions Control Warranty Regulation

This prohibits the sale or the making available for sale of a motor vehicle in British Columbia unless the manufacturer promises to fix the vehicle free of charge if there are defects in materials or workmanship that cause the vehicle to fail emission standards.

That’s great as it pertains to newer model vehicles; but when it comes to older vehicles, their exhaust systems differ quite a bit from newer technology.

New vehicle are equipped with more complex systems that integrates Emissions Control Systems into the exhaust plumbing – such as sensors, computer controls, catalytic converters, turbo-chargers and other sub-systems. These shifts in technology have increased the expertise required to service these systems – and CJ Auto has kept up with the changing times to ensure we can help!
