Inland Auto Now Provides Certified Smog Testing in Murrieta

Need a smog test? Now you can rely on Inland Auto to handle it. No need to take your vehicle to a specialty shop. As Inland Auto continues to expand our services, adding smog testing to the list just made sense. Historically we’ve relied on other shops here in Murrieta and Temecula to provide smog testing for our customers. But it’s much more convenient for our customers now that we do in in our shop.

The convenience of being able to smog test your vehicle here is further emphasized when your vehicle requires repairs. If repairs are needed, we can very often handle them right here in the same shop. If you take your vehicle to a shop that specialize in just smog testing and it is in need of repairs, you would then have to visit a second shop to get the repairs made, and then return back to the smog shop.

It’s so important to work with a quality auto shop when your Toyota or Lexes needs service or repair. We’re often quite surprised by what we find after other Murrieta shops work on a vehicle. For this Toyota Camry, the customer recently had their vehicle serviced at a reputable auto shop. But the transmission started leaking fluid quite badly, so they decided to bring their car to us. After inspecting the transmission, we found that the previous shop had replaced the transmission gasket with a cheap rubber-style gasket. It only lasted for a short period of time and then started to leak a lot of fluid. In addition to the mess that a leaking transmission causes, there’s also the risk of overheating or under-lubricating the transmission, as the fluid needs to perform both tasks. In addition, the fluid in an automatic transmission is a key component to its operation, like changing gears. Needless to say, a serious transmission leak needs to be addressed quickly.
