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.
