Aside from saving on repair cost and ensuring fuel efficiency, proper maintenance of the vehicle to assure it is definitely in excellent condition will help guarantee its long use. The catalytic converter as well as the exhaust system can help you save on future costs which calls for correct maintenance on these parts.

The catalytic converter is no doubt a critical part of the vehicle as it helps lessen the emitted pollutants to the environment. Catalytic converters are mainly the reason for diminishing the amount of pollutants emitted by the vehicle. But to properly function, the CAT needs to be supported by fuel. Once there is a fault on the fuel supply, then the CAT might not function well or worse, it might get damaged.

Because the vehicle's catalytic converters is placed under it, the converter is exposed to damage that can be brought about by hitting on bumps and knocks. To avoid bumps and knocks on your CAT, avoid speeding up on bumps, or when you have to pass through road bumps, drive your vehicle at the right angle in which your CAT will be protected. It is rather costly to fix the damage though repair or replacement so it will be smarter to avoid the need for one. Below are tips that will guarantee a long lasting CAT.

- Have your vehicle serviced on authorized and reliable local garage.

- Unleaded fuel is recommended for catalytic converters. A CAT could be deactivated when you used leaded fuel.

- When the car passes a bump, don't let it hit the ground hard. Such will cause damage to both the CAT and the ceramic monolith which are critical in fuel conversion.

- Do not let the vehicle use up its fuel and left with none.

- Never force the vehicle to start with a catalytic converter.

When you have problems with your car's entire exhaust system it could add to your expenses and they can be expensive. However, if you drive carefully and keep the car serviced regularly with a technician specializing on exhaust systems, you can make sure the longevity of your catalytic converter.
