In today's world, environmental issues such as emissions from cars must be raised at an international level. The pollution which emits motor vehicles in the form of smoke and spreads in the air in a poisonous and dangerous manner is harmful for human health and the environment. This makes us study the issue and provide solutions in this regard more seriously than ever before. In this study, the amount of the emitted gases (O2, CO, CO2 and HC) from two types of cars, namely paykan pick-up and pride was analyzed using a smoke analyzer device while the cars were in the stop mode (they were in neutral). The results show that the average concentration of CO and HC of cars exhaust is lower than the standard technical inspection of the cars which is equal to 2.5 Volume percent and 250 ppm, so both vehicles in term of the production of these two pollutants are in good condition. Also, it seems necessary to observe new standards and regulations seriously in order to control pollutants that emit all gasoline cars.
