My car has a manual transmission.

Hi there. If you are looking for a mobile mechanic to come to your location and repair what might be causing your failed emissions test, this is something we might be able to accomplish. The first step would be to have a check engine light inspection completed. This will the mechanic know which O2 sensor is faulty and requires replacement, as well as inspecting the high idle issue. That’s usually caused by a vacuum leak or idle control valve failure.
