A failing catalytic converter can cause a vehicle to fail emissions tests and the Check Engine Light to illuminate. The exhaust might have an unusual smell.
Catalytic converters are vehicle-specific parts. We recommend using a high quality new part, which is required by emissions control programs in many states.
It is very important to have the shop identify why the catalytic converter failed. Failure is almost always due to another problem, which if not resolved, will quickly ruin a new catalytic converter.
Catalytic converters considerably reduce tailpipe emissions and have played a small, yet significant part in the reduction of polluting chemicals being released into the air. However, widespread adoption was held off until the lead problem was dealt with. One of the major contaminants of catalytic converters is lead, since the lead coats the vital surfaces of the converter. Therefore, catalytic converters can only be used in conjunction with unleaded gasoline.

The catalytic converter is part of your vehicle’s exhaust system, but more importantly, it’s a key component of the emissions system, taking the Carbon Monoxide (CO), Hydrocarbons (HC), and Oxides of Nitrogen (NOx) created during combustion, and turning them into water, Carbon Dioxide (CO2) and Nitrogen (N2). The device is so named because it contains catalysts, substances that cause a chemical reaction without themselves undergoing chemical change.

The numbers are from a review of insurance claims data and reflect only known, insured thefts, so the actual number of all catalytic converter thefts is likely much higher, the NICB says.
Engineers estimate that during the last 11 years 130 million catalytic converters used in the U.S. have eliminated automotive pollutants that-if unchecked and unabated-could have covered the country with a toxic blanket of carbon monoxide more than 500 feet deep.brings you the broadest California legal catalytic converter offering from two of the industry's leading manufacturers - Magnaflow and Catco.
