Are you looking for Catalytic Convertors for your vehicle?
A catalytic converter is a device that converts toxic exhaust fumes to less harmful pollutants by facilitating a so-called redox reaction. In short, this is an exhaust emission control device installed in every car.
Harmful exhaust gases like carbon monoxide, nitrous oxide, hydrocarbons etc., are converted to carbon dioxide and water vapour before emission. Thus, this device also reduces subsequent environmental damages.
However, there might be instances when your car’s catalytic converter malfunctions for several reasons. In that case, consult with our experts at A & H Autos for professional catalytic converter replacements Loughborough.
We are a reliable vehicle workshop, well-known for offering a wide range of affordable repair and replacement services for various major car makes.
Functioning of a Catalytic Converter
A catalytic converter is present underneath your car in the exhaust system, precisely between the silencer and exhaust manifold. It comes with a honeycomb structure with a coating of catalysts. These catalysts react with the toxic gases, change their chemical structure and convert them to less harmful products.
Generally, the catalysts used in the catalytic converters are metals like Palladium, Platinum and Rhodium. As this device transforms hazardous pollutants into less toxic gases, it helps in reducing air pollution.
Causes of Catalytic Converter Damages
Although catalytic converters are engineered to last for a long time, they can incur damages prematurely due to the following reasons:
- Leakage of oil or refrigerant into the exhaust chamber
- Physical damages from impacts
- Damaged wires or spark plugs
- Infiltration of unburnt fuel into the exhaust system
Signs of Malfunctioning Catalytic Converter
Here are some symptoms of a damaged catalytic converter:
- The check engine light is on
- Dark fumes from the exhaust tailpipe
- Reduced acceleration
- Engine misfiring
