When Should You Replace Your Catalytic Converter?
There are several things that can affect the performance of your catalytic converter. First, your oxygen sensor can fail causing a poor fuel/air mixture, which will lead to either too much or not enough oxygen entering your exhaust system. If there isn’t enough oxygen entering the catalytic converter, then there won’t be enough oxygen available to react with carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons during the oxidation catalyst stage.
What Does a Catalytic Converter Do?
First and foremost, you need to know what a catalytic converter is. A catalytic converter is an important car component that works to reduce vehicle emissions and pollution. It is a metal canister that is installed in the exhaust system. It is filled with a chemical catalyst, usually a platinum or palladium mixture, and helps convert the vehicle’s emissions into non-harmful gasses.
Different Types of Mufflers
A muffler is in charge of absorbing the noise as gas moves through an exhaust system. The amount of noise you hear coming out of a car depends on the type of muffler, the size of the muffler, and the engine. Hurricane Automotive has a wide selection of Black Widow Exhausts. They are built to improve your engine's horsepower without the loud, harsh sounds. They are all made of stainless steel which won’t cause a flow restriction. All of the black widow mufflers are universal, so they can fit almost any exhaust system.
