It is important for a vehicle to emit less harmful and clean gases into the atmosphere to clear the MOT test with flying colours. The process is performed with the help of different parts present in the exhaust system. One of these parts is the catalytic converter of the exhaust. Catalytic converter ensures that the emitted gases are free from toxic elements like carbon monoxide. At Nuneaton Bargain Tyres LTD, we understand the importance of a well maintained catalytic converter. Therefore, when you drive to our garage, we carefully check the catalytic converters Nuneaton.
What is a catalytic converter?
A catalytic converter is a metal canister that stores various catalysts which enhance the combustion of the fuel. The catalyst used is either palladium or platinum. Most of the harmful components are further oxidised to their safer variants.
What are the symptoms of a faulty cylinder?
Though the catalytic converter remains hidden in the exhaust system, the symptoms are quite easy to decipher. To help you with some of these symptoms, let us offer you the following list:
Decrease in the engine’s efficiency
The catalytic converter is responsible for the efficient burning of the engine’s fuel. It enhances the rate of the conversion of carbon monoxide into carbon dioxide. If the converter is at fault, it will lead carbon monoxide back into the engine, and hence decrease the performance of the engine.
As when the catalytic converters begin to get old, it gradually starts braking apart from its specified location. It bangs to the other components of the exhaust and consequentially produces rattling or clattering noises.
Smell of Sulphur
Another best way to find out about a bad catalytic converter is the smell of sulphur. The fuel is converted into hydrogen sulphide when it is burnt. A catalytic converter transforms the hydrogen sulphide into an odourless gas sulphur dioxide. If the converter is at fault, it will not be able to convert the sulphide into dioxide.
Lights on dashboard
If the check engine light is on, it means that there is something wrong with the engine or the exhaust system. One of the options can be a faulty catalytic converter.
