Exhaust and catalytic converter
The catalytic converter is an essential part of the exhaust system.
With the purpose of limiting exhaust noise and preventing harmful gases from entering the vehicle, a properly functioning exhaust system will ensure a quiet ride. It does this in part by reducing the speed and temperature of the gases before they exit the vehicle. The exhaust system is composed of several important parts, including the catalytic converter. This component is designed to minimize the air pollution generated by your car in order to better protect the environment. Understandably, it is crucial to maintain this entire system, both for the sake of your health and the planet.
That is why the team at your local OCTO Auto Service Plus will check your exhaust system during each visit.
Question and Answer
When should I change my catalytic converter?
It is recommended to change the catalytic converter when your car reaches around 100,000 kilometers, depending on your driving.
Be careful, however, under certain conditions the catalytic converter may weaken. In fact, a decrease in its efficiency can be caused by wear and tear on the engine and its components. It is important to keep your catalytic converter in good condition to respect pollution prevention laws and ensure a safe drive.
