With millions of cars in the United States on the road, each one is a source of air pollution. The amount of pollution, especially in large cities, can create big problems. The federal government, states and cities created clean-air laws that restrict the amount of pollution that vehicles can produce. Auto manufactures have made many refinements to fuel systems to keep up with these laws. Around 1975 a device called a catalytic converter was introduced. A catalytic converter is a device that converts toxic pollutants in exhaust gas to less toxic pollutants.

Catalytic converters are amazingly simple devices, so it is incredible to see how big an impact they have. Catalytic converters are used with internal cumbustion engines, fueled by either gasoline or diesel. If an engine is in need of a head gasket repair, coolant passes through at least one combustion cyclider, and out the exhaust pipe. Before exiting the exhaust pipe, the coolant must pass through the cadilatic converter. The internal components of a cadilitic converter have a series of plates with many small holes, and is extremely hot. As the coolant passes through the cadilatic converter, the residue of the water and antifreeze will get “cooked” on the plates. If a head gasket repair is not performed, over time the residue of the antifreeze and water will begin to build up and clog up the small holes in the plates. If exhaust gases cannot pass freely through a clogged catilatic converter, the heat from the exhaust will go back into the engine and cause the vehicle to overheat. Without a timley head gasket repair, the catalytic converter will become damaged and need to be replaced.
