Your wipers' blade condition; rear, signal and brake lights; reflectors, gas filler cap, inlet restrictor and front lights should be exterior components that are all checked.
Under The Hood
Under the hood an inspector will look at the power steering unit, master cylinder unit, upper control arms and steering components, including tie rods, steering box and strut mounting.
The inspector should check to make sure that your car has proper bumper height as each vehicle has a maximum height for the front and rear bumpers.
During your vehicle inspection your auto's air injection system, P.C.V. system, T.A.C. system, spark control, exhaust gas recirculation, oxygen sensor, evaporative emissions system and catalytic converter should be checked.
Within the engine, the following should each be inspected: the exhaust system, brake lines and hoses, fuel system, shock absorbers, spring/torsion bar, front wheel/king pin play, idler arm, pitman arm, stabilizer links, lower control arms, ball joints and wear indicator type.
The wheels should be removed and brake components thoroughly inspected.
