Best Practices
  • Catalytic converters are vehicle-specific parts. We recommend using a high quality new part, which is required by emissions control programs in many states.

Common Symptoms
  • A failing catalytic converter can cause a vehicle to fail emissions tests and the Check Engine Light to illuminate. The exhaust might have an unusual smell.

  • A "restricted" catalytic converter can result in a loss of engine power.

Common Misdiagnoses
  • It is very important to have the shop identify why the catalytic converter failed. Failure is almost always due to another problem, which if not resolved, will quickly ruin a new catalytic converter.
