Catalytic Converter

Modern vehicles are fitted with a catalytic converter to control emissions produced by combustion engines. The catalytic converter is a component designed to reduce the emissions from an engine by converting harmful pollutants such as Carbon monoxide (a poisonous gas), Nitrogen oxides (a cause of smog and acid rain) and Hydrocarbons (a cause of smog) into less harmful emissions. Car Servicing and You offers expert diagnosis and repair of Catalytic Converters.  

When the catalytic converter stops working properly, its importance can be finally understood by the vehicle owner. This is because the most common symptom of a faulty catalytic converter is the bad smell of sulphur coming out from the exhaust. 

Diagnosis of a catalytic convertor problem involves a diagnostic check and monitoring the operation of the Oxygen sensors as well as a visual examination.  In most cases, the fault results from a thick layer of dirt contaminants on the walls or blockages in your catalytic converter. 

Replacing a faulty catalytic converter gives you lower emissions, higher fuel efficiency and better overall performance. In addition to an increase in harmful emissions, continuing to drive with a faulty converter can result in a loss of power.  

Our service staff at Car Servicing and You will conduct tests to find the exact cause of a malfunctioning catalytic converter and advise you of your options in the event that your catalytic convertor has failed.
