2022 Emission Control Application Guide Now Available

A Must-Have Resource for Shops Doing Emission Testing and/or Repair

As an experienced technician, you are probably well aware that many states require motorists to get a smog test before they’re allowed to receive their states vehicle registration. For instance in California where the Mitchell 1 offices are located, a vehicle is required to be smogged every two (2) years. In other states like New York it’s even more frequent, requiring an annual smog inspection for vehicles. That means with an ever growing number of motorists entering our highways and roads, there will be an inevitable constant demand for smog emission testing and services.

Every year the automotive industry is ever evolving, with new vehicles, technologies and government standards being introduced or changed. Mitchell 1 understands this and knows how important it is for technicians and repair shops to stay up to date with the most current emission system information for all sorts of makes and models of vehicles. That is why we publish an annual Emission Control Application Guide (2022 ECAT). Inside the guide you will find vehicle-specific emission system information for the newest vehicles on the market.

As engine controls become more complex with other vehicle systems, the new 2022 ECAT Guide can help repair shops cut through the complexity. For repair shops that use the online repair information in Mitchell 1’s ProDemand auto repair information, this printed companion guide is a great resource to help stay in compliance with any state emission standards.
