Coated Oil-Fouled Substrate Converters

A catalytic converter has no moving parts. A converter cannot "wear out", but can become inert because of the accumulation of deposits, or through the physical damage caused by impact or overheating (misfire or fuel control faults).

Overheated, Melted or Broken Converters






































Catalytic converters don't fail on their own. It is important to check the following prior to converter replacement:

  • 1. Retrieve and repair all PCM trouble codes.
  • 2. Correct all exhaust system leaks







A Catalytic Converter is a vital part of a vehicles emission's control system.

The job of the catalytic converter is to convert harmful pollutants into less harmful emissions before they ever leave the cars­ exhaust system.
