Catalytic converters are found between the silencer and the manifold. Their role is converting pollutants found in exhaust flames into pollutants which are less harmful to both people and the environment.
If your vehicle originally had a catalytic converter fitted, then it is required by law to have one. If it is removed, your car will fail a roadworthy inspection. All modern cars have a catalytic converter.
What is a Catalytic Converter
Car manufacturers are now required by law since 1986 to fit all new passenger vehicles with a catalytic converter. But what exactly is a catalytic converter
It transforms exhaust gases which may be harmful into environmentally friendly elements. In simple terms, it gets rid of anything nasty from the exhaust gas.
The catalytic converter turns the pollutants from exhaust gases into nitrogen, water and carbon dioxide. Its purpose is to make sure that whatever comes out of the exhaust pipe won’t harm the environment.
This is a crucial part of the car exhaust system, and it helps to reduce pollution.
