AYRES Muffler Brake and Alignment Replaces Catalytic Converters

Catalytic-Converter-AYRES-Muffler-Alignment-REPAIR

This rusty pipe is the inside and outside of a catalytic converter. If you look closely at the inside you will see it consists of many small little holes, most of which are clogged with soot. The purpose of the converter is to burn off excess gas the engine does not, helping to keep emission levels down.

Catalytic converters are mandatory on all cars and trucks by law in Washoe County.

Above is a good comparison of what a new catalytic converter looks like and the difference it will make on your car and passing smog.

In this before and after photo you can see the poor condition of the original coupler which was deteriorating.

This 2004 Subaru Outback was sent to us from Integrity Automotive. There were some concerns when Integrity checked their front suspension. One of the bolts holding the strut in place did not match and we are in the process of researching if this is correct and safe or if it needs to be replaced.

If you are doing some repair work yourself and are a little unsure along the way, give us a call to make an appointment to bring it in and get a second opinion.
