The 2015 Emission Control Application Guide is Here!

The 2015 Emission Control Application Guide is Here!

An annual smog check is mandatory in most U.S. states as a requirement of the Clean Air Act of 1997.  On the other hand, some states, like Nebraska, do not require a smog check at all. Illinois and Washington DC require it once in two years. These tests are borne out of the understanding that emissions pollute the environment and cause serious health issues, including cardiac and respiratory diseases.

Each year, Mitchell 1 publishes a must-have resource for any shop doing emission testing and/or repair. We’re happy to introduce the 2015 Emission Control Application Guide (ECAT15) for domestic and import cars, light trucks, vans (diesel engines) and Class ‘A’ motor homes with gasoline engines, model years 1966 through 2015.

Inside you’ll find vehicle-specific emission system information for repair shops that perform smog inspections. The Guide is a great help to any shop that must comply with state emission standards.

Specific content features in the 2015 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
• 1980-2014 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

You’ll also find a standardized emission control abbreviation list for:
• 1966-2015 domestic cars, light trucks, and vans (gasoline engines)
• 1968-2015 imported cars, light trucks, and vans (gasoline engines)
• 1966-2015 medium and heavy duty domestic trucks (gasoline engines)
