Virginia State Safety Inspections
At Loudoun County Exotics we are an Official Virginia State Safety Inspection Station. We follow all Virginia car inspection procedures. The inspection procedure includes the inspection of each part of the vehicle, including brakes, parking brake, headlights, interior lights, steering/suspension, tires/ wheels/rims, mirrors, horn, windshield/automotive glass, windshield wipers/defroster, exhaust system, license plate, air pollution control, driver’s seat, seat belts, airbags, doors, fuel system, floor, as well as a general inspection under the hood. If your vehicle passes the inspection, you will receive a newly issued inspection sticker to remind you the next time your car needs to be inspected. Do not let your vehicle inspection sticker expire without getting a car inspection. Schedule your Virginia State Safety Inspection appointment online today or contact us at 703.665.2490.
A/C and Heating
Your vehicle needs regular check-ups to make sure there are no leaky valves or blockages.
Belts and Hoses
Over time, serpentine belts and radiator hoses require replacement, because they lose their ability to properly expand and contract. In the case of timing belts, teeth that keep the belt in place and functioning properly can snap off or the timing belt may become frayed and loose. One sudden malfunction of these relatively inexpensive but very important parts can have costly consequences.
Check Engine Light
Modern vehicles come equipped with an onboard computer diagnostic system (OBD II) that monitors your vehicle’s operations. The OBD II system monitors emissions control systems. That means the monitors can detect anything from a loose fuel cap to a clogged catalytic converter. An illuminated check engine light means that the driver should have the vehicle checked as soon as possible; a flashing check engine light means that the driver should pull over and shut off the vehicle immediately – as serious engine or emissions system damage can occur.
Mufflers and Emissions
You may think your car’s exhaust system is designed only to reduce noise, but it is also responsible for reducing harmful emissions from entering the atmosphere. Properly functioning catalytic converters and exhaust systems not only sound better, they are better – for you, your car, and the environment.
Tires and Tire Repair
One way to tell is to insert a penny, head first, into the tire tread. If you can see Lincoln’s head, it’s time for tires. But tire tread isn’t the only indicator of problems. If your tires are more heavily worn on the inside than the outside, or vice versa, you may also have wheel alignment issues that won’t be solved with a new set of tires.
Steering and Suspension
If you count drive time as an upper body workout because your car wants to turn when you want to go straight, you may have steering system problems. Potholes and rough road surfaces don’t just make for a bad ride, they can affect the alignment of your wheels.
Radiator and Cooling System
Car overheating can come from a variety of sources. With engine combustion temperatures reaching 2000° F and higher, there is a lot of heat to deal with. Make sure the cooling system in your vehicle is up to the task. Let us check it out today!
Car Battery and Charging
If your car won’t start, the car battery isn’t the only suspect. The starter, alternator, and spark plugs can also be trouble spots. The car battery provides the charge that starts the engine and powers accessories such as lights and wipers. The starter can fail due to electrical or mechanical problems, making your car difficult or impossible to start. If your alternator is not working properly, you may notice headlights or interior lights that dim and brighten on their own, or other odd electrical behavior in the car. Get yours checked today!
Oil is the lifeblood of your engine. It reduces friction, lessens wear, provides lubrication, forms a seal between the pistons, rings and cylinder walls while helping to cool engine parts. Without the cleaning action of new oil, carbon and varnish buildup would be toxic to the engine. And engine oil even dampens the shock and noise of moving parts.
Brakes and Brake Repair
From the brake pedal to hydraulic brake fluid, brake master cylinder to power brake booster, drum brakes to disc brakes and electronic anti-lock brake sensors, our technicians know every part of your brake system inside and out and can perform brake repair on any make and model.
We can help improve your visibility by inspecting windshield wiper blades, headlamps, turn signals, and brake lights, and by filling your windshield washer fluid.
