On-Road Diesels to Be Included in 2010 California Smog-Check Program

In 2010, the California Bureau of Automotive
Repair (BAR) will include light- and medium-duty, on-road diesel
vehicles in its smog-check program. Under the program, manufacturers of
performance and specialty aftermarket parts for diesel applications
will need to meet certain requirements. Specifically, the test will
include a visual inspection for uncertified/non-OEM parts, an OBDII
readiness check and a snap-idle tail-pipe test for particulate matter
(PM).

BAR has developed a list of non-OEM replacement parts
that will be identified during the visual portion of the smog-check
process. Any such parts not qualified as a replacement part (and
thereby exempt from certification) will require compliance coverage
with a CARB Executive Order (E.O.). Identification of any uncertified
parts will cause a vehicle to fail the visual portion of the test. A
similar program is being proposed in the state of Nevada.
