Answer 1
Tail pipe emissions are the critical part of the state emission test but the Check Engine light shows a fault in the emission system. The computer in your car tests the emission system when certain criteria is met while driving or even when the ignition switch is turned on. A scan tool is needed to retrieve the codes stored in the computer in your car and the fault fixed. -
