Catalytic Converter Replacement
Replacing Catalytic Converters for Cars in Portland
A car’s inner workings are constantly completing countless processes to power the engine, control the motion and keep the driver safe. Perhaps one of the most important of these is the process by which a catalytic converter filters out harmful toxins such as carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxide and hydrocarbon so that they don’t enter the cab of your vehicle. This is why catalytic converter replacement or repair is so essential. If you need these services or a new installation for your car, truck or pickup, A1 Muffler is here to help. We serve drivers in Portland and surrounding areas by providing expert auto care and outstanding customer service. When you entrust your vehicle to us, you can be sure we will handle it with pure professionalism.
Understand What Function Your Catalytic Converter Serves
The catalytic converter in your vehicle is essential to your safety. Brands such as Flowmaster and MagnaFlow offer specialized models of this part, but most versions function similarly. Toxic gases that are emitted from an engine must be filtered, so a converter functions by triggering a chemical reaction that turns these emissions into less harmful, or in some cases neutral, gases.
