Introducing the 2016 Emission Control Application Guide

Introducing the 2016 Emission Control Application Guide

Complying with state emissions regulations can be tricky, as rules vary from state to state and special requirements are introduced frequently. So it’s important to keep up with the latest information, especially since emissions testing and repairs are a main staple for many auto repair shops across the U.S.

Each year, Mitchell 1 publishes a must-have resource for any shop doing emission testing and/or repair. We’re happy to introduce the 2016 Emission Control Application Guide (ECAT16) for domestic and import cars, light trucks, vans (diesel engines) and Class ‘A’ motor homes with gasoline engines, model years 1966 through 2016.

Inside you’ll find vehicle-specific emission system information for repair shops that perform smog inspections. As engine controls become more intertwined with other vehicle systems, the new Emission Control Application Guide can help shops cut through the complexity. For repair shops that use the online repair information in ProDemand, this printed companion guide is a great resource to help stay in compliance with state emission standards..

Specific content features in the 2016 edition include:

• Emission application tables
• Engine displacement conversion charts
• Emission control visual inspection procedures
• Approximately 40 years of domestic and imported basic ignition timing specifications
• 1980-2015 maintenance reminder light reset procedures
• The Latest EPA emission recall bulletins
• I/M areas that require ignition timing and EGR function testing.
• Quick reference listing for major systems, devices, and components

• 1968-2016 imported cars, light trucks, and vans (gasoline engines)
