Catalytic Converter Service | Mission Muffler & Brake
If a vehicle has failed a smog check, there may be a problem with that vehicle’s catalytic converter.
A catalytic converter functions in a similar way that a liver does. It is a main filter for automobiles. When a car uses gasoline, there are harmful byproducts that are created as a result. These byproducts are carbon monoxide and unburned hydrocarbons. These exist in the unused gasoline and the waste that is created by the engine. The catalytic converter alters harmful carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons into carbon dioxide, nitrogen, and water.
Smog checks can be failed because of a catalytic converter that is not functioning correctly. Too many harmful chemicals may be passing through the engine’s exhaust system. This is why it is crucial to have a healthy catalytic converter.
Mission Muffler & Brake provides honest and informative service to all of its customers. We can analyze catalytic converters and make a proper diagnosis to see whether or not the vehicle needs a new one or just some maintenance service.
BEWARE of shops that want to replace a catalytic converter at a seemingly inexpensive price. Usually these shops are not providing a catalytic converter that is compatible with the vehicle or not smog check passable. There is a lengthy process with specific steps that need to be followed in order to replace catalytic converters.
