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.
