What is a Catalytic Converter?
On average, your car produces over five tons of CO2 every year. And that number would be exponentially larger without catalytic converters.
Automotive manufacturers are constantly refining their vehicles to have less of a negative impact on the environment, this can include the engine, the fuel system and everything in between. Now, car manufacturers are required by law to add catalytic converters to each of their vehicles.
The catalytic converter was first introduced in 1975 and is the part of your car that reduces up to 40% of a vehicle’s pollutants by monitoring the exhaust stream and filtering out known noxious pollutants. When you see a car on the freeway spewing an excessive amount of smog, they most likely need to replace their catalytic converter.
If it’s not specifically their catalytic converter they most definitely have an issue with their exhaust system. Bring your vehicle into Greitens Auto Service to avoid further damage to your catalytic converter and exhaust system.
