At Dennis Mitchell's Automotive, we help our Jackson customers' cars run as cleanly and efficiently as they possibly can. We provide a range of emissions testing services to ensure that your car is running and driving its best, as well as complying with all local smog regulations. Should a problem arise with any of your vehicle's emission systems, we provide the parts and expertise to get you back on the road. Dennis Mitchell's Automotive can replace mufflers/catalytic converters, refill diesel exhaust fluid, and make sure the full range of filters in your vehicle's exhaust system are working perfectly.
Regulators understand that older cars simply can't meet modern emissions standards without extensive modifications. For newer cars however, passing a smog test is a requirement of road legality. Call us at 731-424-1486 to learn more about the emissions requirements for your vehicle.
Emissions testing (also known as smog testing) is a vital part of the maintenance of your vehicle. E-tests provide your mechanic with important information about your car's engine and exhaust system. If important components, like your car's catalytic converter aren't working properly, the car isn't running as it was intended to by the manufacturer. Inefficiency costs you extra money in fuel and does unnecessary harm to the planet. Emissions testing can also affect the value of a vehicle you're trying to sell; while you can still sell a car without a valid e-test certification, you'll get more money for one that has passed the test.
There are several reasons that a car may fail its emissions test. There may be a problem with the vehicle's fuel system adding too much fuel to the air-fuel ratio required for proper combustion within the cylinders of the car's engine. This is known as "running rich" and results in the smell of gasoline from fuel passing through the engine and exhaust system without being fully burnt. Causes of this issue range from faulty fuel injectors to issues with the engine's control computer. There may also be problems with oxygen sensors or the vehicle's ignition system. At Dennis Mitchell's Automotive, we use a complete set of diagnostic equipment to determine the problem and fix it quickly, explaining every step of the process to you, our valued patron. Call us at 731-424-1486 or send us an email to arrange a health check for your car's emissions system today!
What People Say About Us
I just had 4 new Michelin tires put on my 2017 RAM. The alignment and balancing is just perfect and the truck rides like new. Thank you.
There are not many I trust the health of my vehicles with. Dennis Mitchell and his entire staff are a class act. Very friendly, easy to work with and very efficient with your time. Thank you guys for taking care of my personal vehicle as well as the vehicles we send you from our dealership!
Dennis Mitchell 's is where I take "Barney" (the Mayberry Squad Car) for any mechanical work that I need. They always do excellent work in a timely manner.
One day before I was going to enter a parade my car was running hot. They stayed over a couple of hours to repair the radiator so I could make the parade the next morning. I have to say there is a lot of 'Mayberry' friendliness at Dennis Mitchell's !
We love taking our cars to Dennis Mitchell. Not only are they knowledgeable but they are great examples of a Christian family business.
Our van needed work 2 times in the past 2 weeks. We took it both times to Dennis Mitchell's. We were pleased with the service and with the affordable costs. THANK YOU Dennis and team for making car repairs hassle free! We appreciate your honest and excellent service.
I had a GREAT experience with Dennis Mitchell! My relatively new Subaru was having the craziest problem, to the point that I could barely even drive it! I didn't even know how to explain what was going on with it. But Dennis came to my workplace, picked up my broken car, and gave me a diagnosis and solution within a few hours! (This was a Thursday) He overnighted a part and had it done before I got off work for long weekend by 2 p.m. on Friday!
They are seriously the most amazing people especially McCall! She gave me updates about my car and broke it down to a term that I could easily understand haha. They were so helpful and since I have no idea about cars they aren't the type to cheat me out of my money which I'm so thankful for! I seriously would recommend people to come here with car troubles because that's what I'm doing at the moment.
