Catalytic Converter Replacement
Plainfield, Naperville, Bolingbrook, Romeoville, Aurora, IL
A catalytic converter is an important part of your car’s emission control or catalyst exhaust system. Catalytic converter repair happens to be one of our many services we specialize in. Did you fail your emissions test due to a bad catalytic converter?
What Is A Catalytic Converter?
Hot exhaust gases exit your engine then head through your exhaust system to your catalytic converter. Inside this expanded tube is a massive network or ceramic honeycomb. This ceramic checkpoint has been coated with compounds that react with the exhaust to eliminate certain harmful emissions. A catalytic converter works by using heat, combined with catalyzing agents, to create a chemical process that changes hydrocarbons (HC) and carbon monoxide (CO) into carbon dioxide and water. One of the most common causes in emission test failures is a failed catalytic converter. P0420 & P0430 sound familiar?
Types Of Catalytic Converters
• Two Way Converter – A two-way catalytic converter has two major functions, first to convert carbon monoxide by oxidising it into carbon dioxide, while oxidising unburnt hydrocarbons (unburnt and partially burnt fuel) into carbon dioxide plus water, which is known as a combustion reaction. The two-way converter is commonly found on diesel engines but cannot control nitrogen oxides, hence make the way for the three-way catalytic converter.
• Three Way Converter – A three-way catalytic converter has three important functions, like a two-way it oxidises carbon monoxide into carbon dioxide then also oxidises unburnt hydrocarbons into carbon dioxide and water, but it also addresses the problem of nitrogen oxides, and reduces the nitrogen oxides to nitrogen and oxygen. To much nitrogen oxide problem solved.
• Three Way Converter + Air - A three-way + air catalytic converter performs the same functions as a three-way converter but has secondary air pumped into the middle of the converter between two separate catalyst coated ceramic substrates. The addition of air improves the oxidation capabilities of the converter performance.
Exhaust System Components
Catalytic Converter – A catalytic converter “cat” is a device used to convert toxic exhaust emission gases from an internal auto combustion engine into non-toxic substances. A key component to helping protect the environment from green house gases. The catalyst inside the converter itself most often consists of a combination of precious metals. Hence the price of the proper part on your bill. You must always be careful of the cheap universal where in 9 out of 10 cases does not consist of the proper catalyst precious metal content.

Exhaust Muffler – A muffler is a device similar to a silencer used for reducing the amount of noise emitted by your exhaust system. Without it police love issuing tickets for loud noise. At Last Chance we have the correct muffler for your application from performance exhaust system mufflers, stock muffler kits, racing mufflers, stainless steel. The muffler was designed to reduce exhaust noise by absorbing it. If that exhaust makes noise will muffle it. Have you heard a auto engine running without a muffler? The exhaust muffler makes a huge difference.
Exhaust Resonator – Your vehicle’s engine usually makes a noise while running, this noise can get annoying especially when it is heard for extended periods of time. Hence, mufflers were created to reduce noise generated by your exhaust system. Exhaust resonators, which is like a muffler, further reduce noise levels by making sound waves that cancel out exhaust noises out. A resonator works together with your muffler primarily to decrease exhaust noise. Some cars have them, while other cars do not. A resonator can always be added to your exhaust system, if the case is called for. Do you need a resonator installed?
