Why Is My Car Roaring? | Maple Street Catalytic Converter

Tracy’s Automotive can help if your catalytic converter is stolen or needs repair.

You were headed out on your annual tour of area pumpkin patches when you started your car and noticed the roaring engine. It got louder when you pressed on the gas.

It sounds as if you have a problem with your catalytic converter. It could be failing or, if you’re really unlucky, you could be one of the drivers who have had their catalytic converters stolen. Catalytic converter theft is a national problem and it’s become so much of an issue in Wichita that city leaders are planning to pass an ordinance to make it easier for police to handle converter theft.

“So far this year, Wichita police report seeing nearly 950 cases of catalytic converter thefts, averaging about 100 per month. Last year’s total reported was 1,360, a little more than six times the total of about 200 reported in 2019. Police said the approximate number of catalytic converter thefts is likely an undercount and having more enforcement power against the crime will hopefully increase the number of people reporting the thefts,”  according to kwch.com.

Kwch.com explains, “Thieves steal the parts from under the car and sell them to scrap yards because of the metals catalytic converters contain.”
