What are the various emission standards?

In order to reduce environmental pollution, the European Union initiated certain standards to control the level of harmful vehicle exhaust emissions, like:

  • Nitrogen oxides (NOx)
  • Carbon monoxide (CO)
  • Hydrocarbons (HC)
  • Particulate matter (PM)

The EU emission standards have changed over time, and every car must duly comply with the emission standards of the year under which it was manufactured. We have listed the various Euro standards and car registration year below to help you make an informed decision.

  • Euro 1- All newly registered cars from 1992.
  • Euro 2- All cars registered from 1997.
  • Euro 3- All vehicles registered from 2001.
  • Euro 4- All vehicles that got registered from 2006.
  • Euro 5- All vehicles registered from 2011.
  • Euro 6- All vehicles registered from 2015.

Emission checking procedure at our workshop

We strictly abide by every government recommended procedure for emission Specialist Maidstone which involves the steps stated below:

  • We will first ensure whether your car has enough engine oil, coolant level, and adequate fuel required to carry out an emission test.
  • We will also check whether its engine is working at the normal operating temperature by inserting an oil temperature probe into the dip-stick for maximum accuracy.
  • Once we have conducted all preliminary checks, next, we will park the car in a neutral position and raise the engine speed to half of its maximum and hold it for 20 seconds, after which the engine will be allowed to return to its normal speed.
  • Following this process, we will check the emission from the exhaust. If the exhaust emits dense blue or black smoke, the car will fail the test.
  • After the visual inspection, we will further use an approved analyser to assess the concentration of carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons in the exhaust gases. This test will be carried out with the engine at its normal speed. The analyser will display the result continuously until it gets a stable figure.

Our experts will record the final analyser result and will let you know whether your vehicle complies with its recommended Euro emission standard.

Therefore, look no further for an emission specialist near me and come down to us.
