On average, your car produces over five tons of CO2 every year. And that number would be exponentially larger without catalytic converters. As well as refinements to car engines and fuel systems, car manufacturers are required to add catalytic converters to their products in order to reduce the amount of harmful gases released from the exhaust system to meet federal and state emission standards. The catalytic converter was first introduced in 1975 and today reduces up to 40% of a vehicle’s pollutants by monitoring the exhaust stream and filtering out known noxious pollutants.
If your vehicle produces excessive smoke from it’s tailpipe and your “check engine light” is on, you may have an issue with your exhaust system, including its catalytic converter. Bring your vehicle into Martino’s Auto Center to avoid further damage to your catalytic converters.
