Question answered by Biyonca
Usually they are checking the emission of the car, so have you recently changed the oil, had the transmission flushed? If not, do that and change the air filter if its looking a little old, and see if that helps. If its doesnt then maybe you could use an engine cleaner.
Also you can buy, fairly cheap, the little OBDII tester that they use and download the codes they are getting and see what your car is saying. You can usually look up the codes online.
Or just pay a mechanic to run the test and ask them why.
How much does a complete vehicle inspection cost and what is it exactly?
I'm not talking about the mandatory safety inspection most states require every year or couple of years. I mean when you take it to a mechanic for an inspection. Does it mean they check the car from top to bottom and tell you everything that's wrong with it and that needs to be fixed?

Its what it says. A full inspection that reviews electrics, glass, suspension, wheels, lights, tyres brakes, exhaust, bearings, auxiliary equipment, steering etc etc.
You would be looking at £100 for such a full inspection.
It goes way beyond the normal service inspection IF done correctly.
How does the inspection of vehicles work in UK?
I'm doing a degree in Asia regarding the above subject. specifically, how often does Large goods vehicle require inspection? are they required to send their vehicles for inspection or does the various govt agencies head down to the various companies to conduct checks?
Question answered by Andy
You should find your answer here.
I think the vehicles need to be presented annually for testing at an approved test station to have a specific inspection in order to remain in service but do not know much about Heavy Goods Category.
Good Luck !
What are the requirements to pass a vehicle inspection in North Carolina?
I have a 96 dodge avenger that I have been rebuilding, and currently it isn't completely put back together, however I need to have it on the road. What are the minimums that I need to be able to pass inspection so I can get it registered? It will be put back together eventually, I've been changing a lot of things, painting, reupholstering, that kind of thing... just to give an idea of the work I'm doing as to help answer my question.

A North Carolina vehicle safety and/or emissions inspection is required annually before the vehicle’s registration can be renewed. Inspections may be obtained up to 90 days prior to midnight of the last day of the month designated on the vehicle registration sticker on the license plate.
Vehicle Safety Inspection
Vehicles 35 years old, or older, are exempt from the North Carolina vehicle safety inspection. The cost of a passed safety inspection is $13.60. The vehicle inspection can be performed at any of the 7,500 licensed inspection stations throughout the state. Most service stations, automobile dealerships and vehicle repair garages are licensed inspection stations.
Doesn't say what they inspect though. You might call and ask.
How much should a vehicle inspection cost?
My car is making a noise and I’d like to take it into a repair shop and have the problem pinpointed. Usually when I go in, I have a service in mind (oil change, coolant flush, etc.), but I’ve never gone in not knowing what I want specifically done.
How much should I expect to pay for this inspection?

Is 21 CarFax records a high number of records for a 2003 vehicle?
Im planning on purchasing a vehicle this friday, and I am waiting to purchase the carfax untill the day I am going to see the car. With the free sample thing they let you have before purchasing, it shows 21 records. Is that a high amount for that year of vehicle? It only has 55,000 miles.
Question answered by xx_satanic_mechanic_xx
a carfax record can be a maintenance stop, a repair, change of ownership, smog and safety inspection, renewal of registration, accident or insurance claim.
The key is to know WHAT the records are. I have an 05 that I drive all the time. It have close to 50 Carfax records. The previous owner did all of his service at the dealer, it changed hands twice, was smogged 4 times, and registered 6 times.
Carfax will record whatever is reported to them, so the records could be anything. It coudl be 1 record, and that was a total collision. It could be many records, and the car never got a scratch on it.
INstead of using carfax, pay the $100 or so to have a mechanic look the car over. Carfax will only tell you what happened in the past, provided the whole history is reported. A mechanic will tell you what you are looking at TODAY, and that is worth way more than a piee of paper.
How do I get A vehicle to Canada from America?
I live in Alberta(Canada), but need to get A vehicle from Phoenix, AZ.
What do I need to do in terms of registration, transportation, ect ect?
Question answered by Entidtil
The basic rules in importing a car into Canada are as follows. First consult the Government of Canada site. Officially the Registrar of Imported Vehicles , also called Riv. This can be done by phone, email or both.
Transport Canada issues a comprehensive List of Vehicles Admissible from the United States. This is your initial bible to consult both in terms of admissibility and inadmissibility. Note that certain model years may have different rulings. It is up to you to do a thorough a complete job of research. Again phone, email to check and recheck if you are unsure or doubtful. .
It is wise to check with the manufacturer of the car in terms of warranty coverage. If coverage is not available perhaps third party coverage can be purchased, if the overall cost savings warrant it.
Before exporting the car from the United States, you will have to fax U.S. customs the relevant documents 72 hours in advance. Next you will have to follow the procedure outlined at the Riv site of What to do at the Border. This involves documentation, the paying of certain fees and taxes and within a set time an Imported Vehicle Inspection and certification by an approved automobile service agency. If modifications need to be done to bring the car into line with Canadian standards, these must be done. Certification again must be done by the approved repair facility.
Lastly remember that cars manufactured within the NAFTA trade zone do not pay extra duty. However extra duties on cars manufactured outside the U.S., Canada or Mexico may be demanded. By Canada Customs. Again it is your responsibility to do your homework.
This is a basic explanation of the steps required to import a car into Canada from the U.S. There may be additional steps involved, in your specific case. Rules may change over time, either overall or in specifics.
It cannot be overstated that you must do a thorough and complete job of research either by phone, email or both.
Written documentation is most preferential over verbal. Check and recheck. If in doubt phone or email.
At this point in time, many many Canadians have purchased a car in the United States and imported that vehicle into Canada. These smart consumers have found that the cost savings on purchasing their vehicle well outweigh their investments in time, efforts and extra work involved.
Since we do not have inspection stickers on our cars in North Carolina, what do I do ?
What agency do I need to contact to find out when my inspection is due on my car? Before all I had to do was look at the sticker in the left-hand side of my window. Can someone tell me how I can find out when my inspection is due? Thank you.

What type of service do I need on my truck?
I have a 2000 Toyota Tundra SR5 TRD 4x4 and I need to know the exact type of service I need. Is it a minor, intermediate, major, or basic oil change?
Sorry about that! It has 135,000 miles on it and need to know what type service is required for 135k miles!! Other than that I've followed the scheduled services but now I'm over what is printed in the manual!
Question answered by lovelyrj7
How many miles do you have? what servicing have you had in the past? Usually recommendations for service are found in the owners manual. If you have over 100K I would recommend the major service on the vehicle. It would consist of :
Replace oil and filter up to 6 quarts
lube as applicable
computer balance all 4 wheels and check pressure (weights included)
electronic engine control test
Replace spark plugs
Service battery and clean terminals
Check all belts and hoses
Check Emission system (included checking EGR operation if applicable)
Replace engine coolant (up to 1 gallon)
Automatic transmission drain and refill
Inspect all fluid levels and fill
Check exhaust system
Lube doors and hinges
Replace air filter
Check all lights
Check heater and A/C operation
Adjust parking brake
27-point vehicle inspection
Again depending on mileage, the servicing may vary.
If you want, you can email me your VIN. I can run it in the Toyota database to see if there are any recalls on your vehicle/warranty issues.
Edit: based on mileage, 135K usually means a minor service (5K). That is based on interval ONLY. More then likely you will need to replace drive belts, and possibly do a tranny flush, and brake flush. I would highly recommend the major service at this point. If you follow the manual its basically this: every 5K or 6 months minor service. (oil change, tire rotation, battery service, fluid top off) every 15k or 12 months intermediate svc. Same as minor only replace air filter. Every 30 k or 24 months, major service. At the mileage you are at, i'd take it to a dealership for a basic 5k service, and see what recommendations they would have. A tundra can ideally last 300k if maintained properly. Email me again with any questions.
