What Is a State Inspection?

The inspection is a thorough and stringent process, and it’s important to you and everyone else on the road that your vehicle be as safe as possible.

We Offer Professional State Inspections

At Mobile Auto Truck Repair Albuquerque, we’re a licensed inspection station for the State of Albuquerque NM, and we’ll make sure your vehicle passes every point on the checklist. Remember that if your vehicle does not pass, you will not be able to renew your registration!

Exclusions from State Inspections

  • Vehicles are exempt from the emissions inspection if they are:
  • Motorcycles
  • Less than two model years old (the model year is greater than or equal to the calendar year minus one)
  • More than 25 model years old (the model year is less than or equal to the calendar year minus 25)

  • Electric-powered

How is Emissions Testing Done?

Emissions testing is now done by accessing the engine’s onboard diagnostics (OBD-II) and checking the drivetrain computer for trouble codes. Should your vehicle fail emissions or safety inspection, the problems will have to be fixed before you can be tested again. The emissions inspection is also a requirement for renewing a registration – if your vehicle is not inspected, your registration will be refused.

What’s Included In A Complete Vehicle Inspection?

There’s a lot involved in a Complete Vehicle Inspection, so expect it to take a little longer than our Courtesy Check. Our ASE-certified auto technicians perform these full vehicle inspections and they know just what to look for. With a Complete Vehicle Inspection, you’ll receive a thorough assessment of your vehicle’s condition.

Exhaust System

We check for vehicle noises such as popping, hissing or excessive loudness, all of which could indicate leaks at the exhaust manifold, muffler, tailpipe, a punctured catalytic converter, or other problems with the exhaust system.

  • Exhaust Manifold
  • Oxygen Sensor
  • Exhaust Pipe
  • Tailpipe and Muffler

Steering & Suspension

We check for suspension-related issues, including loose steering parts, damaged shocks or struts, broken or worn out mounts or bushings, and vehicle swaying or bouncing.

  • U-Joint
  • Idler/Pitman Arm

  • Bushings
  • Tie Rod Ends
  • Ball Joints
  • Shocks/Struts

Tires & Alignment

We examine tire pressure, making sure the recommended tire pressure is set according to the specifications set by your vehicle’s manufacturer.

We perform a thorough visual inspection of your tires, paying close attention to the depth of the tread and the tire wear patterns. Uneven tire wear could be a sign of a misalignment which could reduce the life of your tires and decrease fuel efficiency.

We also make sure the tread depth of your tires has not fallen below the recommended levels. The amount of tread on your tires has a direct impact on the stopping distance of your vehicle. We make sure your car is set to provide the best performance when you are on the road.

During a Complete Vehicle Inspection, we will inspect the following tire and wheel alignment components.

  • Tire Pressure Check
  • Tire Tread Depth
  • Inspect for Illuminated TPMS Light
  • Signs of a Misalignment

Brakes

Can’t forget about one of your vehicle’s most important safety features, your brakes! During a Complete Vehicle Inspection, we’ll examine the condition of your braking system and watch for any common brake problems like grinding, squeaking, shaking steering wheel while braking, and spongy brakes.

  • Measure Brake Pad/Shoe Thickness
  • Measure Brake Rotor Thickness
  • Measure Brake Drum Diameter
  • Brake Hoses
  • Parking Brake System
  • Other Braking Components including Hardware, Calipers, Wheel Cylinders, and ABS

TIPS

Tips for Conducting Vehicle Inspections

Auto Inspection Service near Albuquerque NM: Once you develop a systematic approach to checking your car, light truck or van, it takes only a few minutes. Some items should be inspected every day, while others can be inspected on a weekly basis.  Information below is laid out in an order that many find to be a logical step-wise flow for an efficient inspection.  The tips provide helpful guidance and useful reminders. Click on the links for brief instructional videos or step by step instructions on how to inspect each item, and what you should be looking for during the inspection.

  • Engine Oil

Consult your owner’s manual to confirm the oil you use is the right viscosity if operating in extreme heat or cold.

  • Tires-Air Pressure

Find tire inflation recommendations posted on the driver side door jamb or in the glove box and listed in your owner’s manual.

  • Spare Tire

If you have a full size spare tire, you may want to rotate it into use to achieve even tire wear.

  • Tires-Tread Depth

The Motor Vehicle Act requires that tires be replaced when tread depth wears to 2/32″ (or 1.6 mm). At best, that provides marginal traction in ideal road conditions. When roads are wet it’s not enough thread to prevent hydro-planning. Plan to replace tires when tread depth is 4/32″ or 3.2 mm.

  • Tail lights

Between regular wash jobs, use a damp cloth to clean dirt and road film from all light lenses.

  • Windshield

Use a clean cloth and automotive windshield cleaner to clean the INSIDE of your windshield.

  • Wipers

Replace wiper blades when you see streaks or gaps in their path. Switch to winter wiper blades in October.

As of 2014, the cost of the OBDII test in the Albuquerque NM City metropolitan area is $27, but the fee is  only $11 in upstate Albuquerque NM.

What Components Does the Inspection Cover?

A NYS inspection involves safety checks of many components, such as seat belts, brakes, steering, lights, directional, horn and windshield wipers. It also includes an emissions test, and vehicles made after 1995 must have a computerized On-Board Diagnostic Inspection as well.

What Else Should I Have Checked Out?

Our auto inspections will keep you safe and give you a clear picture as to how your vehicle is running. Whether you have a newer car with low mileage or an older vehicle with its share of wear and tear, we have the tools and skills to meet your needs. We maintain convenient hours and make appointment scheduling easy.  And possibly best of all – we keep our rates reasonable to serve our customers’ needs

Do Really I Need to Get An Inspection?

Yes. In order to register a car or truck in Albuquerque NM State, the vehicle must get a safety inspection. Inspections need to be performed every 12 months or when the ownership of the vehicle is transferred. If your vehicle does not have a valid inspection you cannot renew the registration, you can receive a fine, and you can receive a parking ticket.  It doesn’t pay to skip your inspection, if it’s due to come in for an inspection today.

What does your inspection cover?

Just about everything it is possible to check at the seller’s house without the use of tools. Plus we can add ‘special questions’ so we cover problem areas or weak spots that may be peculiar to your type of vehicle. Like the wood frame on a Morgan or early MG for example. We recommend you ask the seller if he can arrange the use of a lift for an inspection, or at the very least have him get some ramps set up in his driveway. We do not mind getting dirty!

Are your inspectors ASE Certified Automotive Technicians?

Yes, many of them are (or have been), yes BUT ASE Certification is really about knowledge of mechanical equipment on late model cars and trucks. There is no nationally recognized certification for inspectors of older or classic cars. We demand more than that from our inspectors than just having knowledge of the modern mechanicals.

Will I be able to talk to the inspector after he has looked at the car?

Usually, you will find answers to all your questions in the report and photos. If there are a couple of things you would like clarified or need further details on, we will ask the inspector for you and will get back to you with the answers. For logistical reasons, our inspectors are not “on-call” to answer questions as they come up.

What is your refund policy?

Although we ‘run’ your credit card and put a ‘hold’ for the agreed amount, you will not actually be charged until the inspector sets out to perform the inspection. From that point on, there are no refunds.

What happens if your inspector is unable to test-drive the car?

We will ask the seller to drive and observe as a passenger, if he will not allow us to do that, then clearly there is nothing more we can do. Of course we will let you know that we were unable to perform that part of the inspection and you’ll have to take that into consideration when you decide whether or not to purchase that particular vehicle. On occasion, honest sellers who were unwilling to let a car be driven (because of a legitimate reason, like snow or salt on the roads etc), can later be coaxed into offering a short warranty on the drive train if the buyer makes it a condition to close the deal.
