WHAT DOES A CATALYTIC CONVERTER DO?
A catalytic converter is a metal canister installed on your vehicle's exhaust system. It works to reduce your vehicle's emissions and pollution and is filled with a chemical catalyst, usually a platinum and palladium mixture, to help convert the vehicle’s emissions into non-harmful gasses.
