Smog FAQ And Car Care Tips:

Smog Check FAQ:

R&R Auto Service is an official smog center. Your car will be checked while you wait-no appointment necessary.

Q & A:

Not all vehicles need a smog check. Some vehicles need a smog check when they are being sold or registered in California after previously being registered in another state. Also, the type of vehicle, the model year, and the area in which the vehicle is registered determines a smog check.

Car Care Tips:

Performing recommended maintenance is a major factor in how well your car holds up. Lack of maintenance almost always results in bigger problems down the road.

When you bring your car in for the first time, R&R's technicians will enter all your pertinent automotive data into their top-of-the line computer system supported by All Data, the latest in auto repair software. That will keep them apprised of your regular maintenance schedule so that the mechanic knows exactly what to look for and check on.

Cars are becoming increasingly dependent on computerization as technology advances. This has done two things to the industry. First, it has improved the performance level of the vehicle. Second, it has increased the amount of knowledge and training necessary to maintain mechanical integrity.

Car Care Q & A:

Here are some commonly asked car care and repair questions. Click on the link for a quick answer.


The correct tire pressure for a vehicle is determined by the size and weight of the vehicle, the type of tires it uses, load hauled, and the type of driving the vehicle is intended for. The vehicle manufacturer places a tire inflation placard in each vehicle that gives the proper tire inflation pressures for that vehicle. This placard is located on the inside of the glove box door, inside the fuel-filler door, or on the driver’s side doorpost (depending upon manufacturer). Most manufacturers also list tire inflation levels in the owner’s manual.
