Vehicle emissions event set for Saturday

local@modbee.comJune 26, 2013 

The San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District and Valley Clean Air Now will hold a Tune In And Tune Up car cleanup at the Stanislaus County Fairground on Saturday.

The vehicle emissions event, from 9 a.m. to3 p.m., identifies and helps repair older, out-of- tune vehicles that hurt air quality throughout the valley.

On Saturday, Turlock-area drivers who have had their cars for at least six months will receive a free vehicle emissions test.

If the vehicle doesn't pass, but can be repaired, a voucher for up to $500 in emission-related repairs at a participating STAR- certified smog check station will be provided. There also will be a car- care clinic and health and safety fair at the fairground, with educational booths by nonprofit agencies.

Additionally, there will be music and free food. To learn more, email or call (800) 806-2004.
