Need a New Catalytic Converter
Catalytic Converters were adopted in the mid 1970’s as a way to reduce the environmental pollution eliminated by gasoline burning engines. Pronto Muffler has performed countless catalytic converter installs in Plano and now in our McKinney location. Both as a means to upgrade the performance of a vehicle by increasing airflow through the entire exhaust system and for replacement of worn out converters.
Catalytic Converters will eventually wear out due to the extreme heat they produce. It’s the heat that actually burns off the pollutants, but unfortunately ultimately destroys the unit itself. However, many catalytic converters last for many, many thousands of miles.
Spent or burnt pollutants build up in the converter, ultimately restricting airflow and increasing heat. Which is one reason replacing a catalytic converter can do so much for increasing a vehicles performance.
