Catalytic converter

A catalytic converter is an exhaust emission control device that reduces toxic gases and pollutants in exhaust gas from an internal combustion engine into less-toxic pollutants by catalyzing a redox reaction (an oxidation and a reduction reaction).

Signs that your catalytic converter needs to be changed.

  1. The smell of sulfur or rotten eggs from the exhaust.
  2. Sluggish engine performance.
  3. Excessive heat under the vehicle.
  4. Reduced acceleration.
  5. Dark exhaust smoke.
