Missing | Maple Street Catalytic Converter

Missing | Maple Street Catalytic Converter

If your catalytic converter becomes clogged or is stolen, Tracy’s Automotive will replace it.

You haven’t gotten out much in recent days because of the weather. But today, you’re taking advantage of the clear skies to head to the store to stock up and to buy nibbles for tomorrow’s Super Bowl. The shopping itself went well and you got most of what you wanted.

The problem was your car – it was extremely loud when starting and you could smell exhaust fumes, which is unusual.

Uh oh. That sounds like a problem with your emissions system. Or worse, it means you’ve become the victim of catalytic converter theft.

“Catalytic converters are designed to act as a line of defense against harmful exhaust emissions by turning pollutants into harmless gasses. The technology used in these emission control devices includes many precious metals — like platinum, palladium or rhodium – making them a valuable item to steal and resell,” according to allstate.com. “You may not be able to tell your catalytic converter was stolen by looking at your car, but you’ll know as soon as you start the engine. When the catalytic converter has been removed, your vehicle will make a loud roaring sound that’ll get louder as you push the gas pedal.”

Catalytic converter theft is a nationwide problem. If you become a victim, there’s not much you can do except report it to the police and get your converter replaced by a trusted auto repair shop like Tracy’s Automotive.

Tracy’s Automotive is here to help you. If you don’t have time or feel you can take your car to the shop, Tracy’s Automotive will pick it up at your home or work. Then, after your car is serviced or repaired, Tracy’s Automotive will bring it back to you thoroughly cleaned.
