In order to receive a valid registration sticker, vehicles must first pass an emissions test to ensure that they are not producing harmful amounts of polluting gasses. One of the most common causes for failing to pass the test is a malfunctioning catalytic converter. Catalytic converters are responsible for reducing the potency of the pollutants released from the tailpipe of a vehicle. These devices resemble mufflers in appearance and are commonly placed near the manifold of the vehicle.
Although these devices rarely wear out, they are subject to failure from external physical damage like impacts or from internal damage like overheating. Rich fuel mixtures and engine misfires can cause raw fuel to enter the converter and ignite. The resulting high temperatures can exceed the melting point of the catalyst components, leading to clogging and failure. The catalyst material inside the converter can also become contaminated by silicon or leaded fuel.
