What Does A Catalytic Converter Do?
Another major function is to keep your emission levels safe. Over the past 40 years Australia has tightened it’s vehicle emission standards to improve air quality. Since the mid 80’s, all car manufacturers have had to fit catalytic converters to petrol and LPG vehicles to meet emission limits. A catalytic converter is a very important exhaust component. It converts harmful gases and pollutants into cleaner emissions before they get out the exhaust pipe.
Other key components of your exhaust system are the manifold, muffler and tail pipe.
It is important to have your exhaust system repaired as soon as a leak or problem is found as harmful gases can leak into the cabin of your car creating a dangerous situation.
