As government standards became more stringent, the auto industry responded with the introduction of catalytic converters and sophisticated engine electronics to significantly reduce emissions of all three regulated gases.  Every vehicle sold in the U.S. since 1996 has been required to meet Onboard Diagnostic II (OBDII) standards. The OBDII system provides a visual alert to the driver any time emissions exceed U.S. Environmental Protection Agency standards by a factor of 1.5 or more. This protocol – and the resulting dashboard “Check Engine” warning light – has made emissions service one of the fastest growing areas of automotive repair.

Automotive emissions control systems comprise dozens of components ranging from valves and sensors to catalytic converters. WVE™ emissions products are made to meet or exceed vehicle manufacturer specifications to work in concert with the fuel system, underhood electronics and the engine to minimize emissions of environmental pollutants.
