If your Mitsubishi catalytic converter is failing there are some signs to look for. There can be misfiring in the engine system, it can slow down the performance of your car, affect the fuel economy of your vehicle giving you less miles per gallon and if your check engine light comes on this could be a sign that it may be time to replace the catalytic converter. It is important to take care of your exhaust system and in particular to make sure you get your Mitsubishi catalytic converter replaced with an exact fit Mitsubishi replacement catalytic converter that you can find from us. Remember that a damaged catalytic converter will mean your vehicle will be releasing a lot of toxic pollutants into the air and will also cause you to fail your smog check when it comes time for that. So don’t wait until the last minute. Contact us to get your Mitsubishi replacement catalytic converter.
From the list of parts that is available here, you can select the Mitsubishi catalytic converter for which you need replacement. The combustion process and various other processes take place in the engine system to ignite the vehicle. During this process, there is emission of gases like carbon monoxide and hydrocarbon gases that affect the vehicle system. The purpose of the Mitsubishi catalytic converter is to protect the engine system from getting affected by these gases.
A three-way Mitsubishi catalytic converter will go through two stages: a reduction catalyst where platinum and rhodium help reduce the Nitrogen oxide emissions. When the nitrogen oxides come into contact with the catalyst, the catalyst rips the nitrogen atom and produces the less harmful nitrogen gas. The oxidation catalyst is the second stage and it reduces the unburned hydrocarbons and carbon monoxide by burning them over a platinum and palladium catalyst. This aids in the reaction of the carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons with the rest of the oxygen in the exhaust gas.
The Mitsubishi catalytic converter in the engine system oxidizes these harmful gases that are given out by the engine system. The process of oxidation is possible only with the catalyst and so the Mitsubishi catalytic converter consists of the catalysts like the platinum or palladium. These catalysts found in the Mitsubishi catalytic converter are expensive metals and so they do not involve directly in the process of oxidization. Instead, these catalysts in the Mitsubishi catalytic converter undergo a virtual oxidization. As the result of oxidization in the Mitsubishi catalytic converter, the carbon monoxide and hydrocarbon gases are converted into the carbon dioxide and water. These products are then let though an outlet pipe through the basement of the engine system.
