Check Engine Light Catalytic Converter and Acura Mechanic Services in Farmers Branch
Acura mechanic services in Farmers Branch can be resolved and repaired by Linear Automotive. When the check-engine light comes on, the next most common repair is a failing catalytic converter(s). In 2013 it accounted for 6.10% of repairs completed. It is one of the more expensive repairs due to the precious metals it contains. There have even been brash robberies of catalytic converters precisely for the precious metal content. The catalytic converter won’t fail unless there is another underlying problem.
Some of the underlying reasons catalytic converters fail is that the oxygen sensor may not be functioning correctly. Another possibility is that a spark plug might misfire and send unburned fuel into the exhaust system. If very much fuel enters the catalytic converter it can combust in the converter and cause a meltdown of the ceramic catalyst. There could have been some road damage causing debris to strike the lightweight and thin walled ceramic to fracture. Other road damage could be broken hangers from potholes and off road driving. If oil and/or antifreeze enter the exhaust system it can block air flow with carbon soot that can coat the inside of the converter. The driver will experience loss of power from catalytic converter problems.
