All petrol cars from 1993 onwards were fitted with catalytic converters.

A catalytic converter is basically a filter for your cars exhaust system, which with a combination of heat and precious metals, a chemical reaction occurs allowing harmful gases to be converted in to natural ones. They are always located as near to the engine as possible to reach their optimum working temperature.

A Catalytic converter was designed to last the life of your vehicle but that all depends on how you look after your vehicle keeping up with manufactures service recommendations is a must.
Catalytic converters are very efficient and work in conjunction with the oxygen or better known as the lambda sensor this monitors the amount of oxygen in the exhaust gases and sends this information to the ECU engine management system. The ECU then using information sent by the lambda sensor continually adjusts the air/ fuel mixture to give a clean and efficient combustion under all operating conditions.
