Emissions related repairs generally include only those adjustments to and
maintenance and repair of the motor vehicle components and systems which are
directly related to the reduction of exhaust and evaporative emissions
necessary to comply with the applicable emissions standards. The expenditure
for emissions related repairs does not include the inspection fee as specified
in § 46.2-1182 of the Virginia Motor Vehicle Emissions Control Law or the
expenses associated with the adjustments to and maintenance, replacement, and
repair of emissions control equipment if the need for such adjustment,
maintenance, or repair is due to obvious disconnection of, tampering with, or
abuse to such emissions control equipment.
Repairs and maintenance including but not
limited to the following systems may qualify as emissions related repairs
insofar as the purpose is to reduce exhaust or evaporative emissions:
1. Air intake systems.
2. Ignition systems.
3. Electrical systems.
4. Fuel control systems.
5. Emissions control systems.
6. Basic engine systems.
7. Engine cooling systems for microprocessor
based air and fuel control systems.
8. On-board diagnostic systems.
The cost of emissions related
repairs may qualify for repair costs applicable toward the waiver cost
N 5 only if performed
at a certified emissions repair facility. The repairs shall be performed by or
under the supervision or approval of a certified emissions repair
