They check over vehicles' inner workings to ensure they don't emit excess pollutants and contribute to smog, fulfilling the DMV's requirements for registration. Of course, cars can have more issues than problems with emissions and intolerance of loud chewers, and to that end the techs also fix mufflers and specialize in servicing heating and cooling systems.
