Car Clean-Up Event Set
Placeholder Image

Are you a San Joaquin Valley resident? Have you owned your car for six months? Does your car fail emissions testing? If so, join Valley CAN (Clean Air Now) and the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District for a free emissions test and diagnostic inspection. If your car fails the test, you may receive a voucher for free smog repairs. The free emissions test and diagnostic inspections will be held on Saturday, Jan. 21 from 8 a.m. to noon at the Stanislaus County Fairgrounds, 900 N. Broadway, Turlock. The event gate is subject to close earlier and there is no entry before 6:30 a.m.

Enter from North Soderquist Road between Fulkerth Road and West Canal Gate 9. Expect a two-plus hour wait. This event only provides emissions screenings. No smog certificates will be issued. There will be free food and drinks at 8 a.m. until the supplies last. The first 525 vehicles that qualify after the free emissions test will receive a $500 voucher for repairs at a participating STAR smog shop.
