Clogged Up | Wichita Auto Care

If your catalytic converter becomes clogged, you need help from the Wichita auto care technicians at Tracy’s Automotive.

You were planning to go to the Kechi Kite Festival today but when you were driving home from work last night, you noticed your check engine light had come on. Like most drivers who see that light, you had a sinking feeling and now you’re wondering what horrible thing is wrong with your car. And you’re wondering if you need to see a Wichita auto care pro today.

A check engine light can indicate many problems. Some of them are simple to fix – like a loose gas cap. Others are a bit more complicated – like a clogged catalytic converter.

A catalytic converter has “a honeycomb-like interior composed of materials with chemical profiles that actually change the makeup of exhaust gasses passing through them. They also collect residue and can clog over time,” according to

Among the symptoms of a clogged, or failing, catalytic converter: check engine light, rough performance, a smell of rotten eggs, misfiring, and bad gas mileage.

The bad news, according to “Once your catalytic converter fails, there is no fixing it. Replacing the faulty component is the only course of action.”

The good news: If your catalytic converter has failed or isn’t working quite right, the Wichita auto care specialists at Tracey’s Automotive Tire Pros will help.
