Catalytic Converters

Keep Your Car Passing Smog

Catalytic Converters

Failed smog? Hearing a rattling coming from the underside of your vehicle? Have a loss of power and struggling to keep up with other vehicles on the freeway? Have a check engine light on?

These are all symptoms of a bad catalytic converter. Your catalytic converter is an essential part of your emission & exhaust system. Your engine emits 3 main gasses:

  • Nitrogen oxides
  • Carbon monoxide
  • Hydrocarbons

Your catalytic converter converts carbon monoxide into carbon dioxide, hydrocarbons into carbon dioxide, and water and nitrogen oxides into nitrogen and oxygen. This ensures a reduction in the harmful emissions that are released into our environment. In California all cars manufactured after 1975 must have a catalytic converter to pass smog.
