Free Car Care Clinics in April




When the check engine light is on, a vehicle will not pass the annual Texas emissions inspection, and the car cannot be registered because that indicates problems with the vehicle’s emissions control system and may be emitting excess pollution into the air.

Local repair facilities have partnered with the North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG) to provide free Dallas-Fort Worth area Car Care Clinics in April to speak with a certified technician about what may be wrong with the car. Sometimes the repair costs less than we think—something as simple as a faulty gas cap could be causing the problem—and there’s no obligation to get your car repaired.

NCTCOG staff will be on hand to explain the AirCheckTexas Drive a Clean Machine Program. Get your car’s emissions-related repairs corrected for as little as a $30 copay so it can pass the test. Each vehicle that receives an engine code scan will also receive a free roadside emergency kit, while supplies last. Even if the check engine light is off, come by for a free multi-point vehicle inspection.

To find a clinic, visit NTXCarCare.org. For more information, call 817-704-5697 or email NTXCarCare@nctcog.org.
