Buy Or Sell Catalytic Converter

The development of certain prototypes in France at the end of the 19th century marks the beginning of the catalytic converter‘s history A French mechanical engineer named Eugene Houdry was granted a patent for his work on the creation of gasoline engine catalytic converters in the middle of the 1950s. Following the introduction of emissions control rules in the early 1960s, catalytic converters underwent significant development. The Engelhard Corporation produced the first catalytic converter for manufacturing in 1973, and by 1975, the component was being used extensively. So basically if your vehicle was made after 1975 then it will have a catalytic converter installed in it already.

The purpose of a catalytic converter is to transform hazardous substances’ emissions into harmless gasses such as steam before they enter the atmosphere. The catalyst converts dangerous compounds into harmless gasses before they enter the atmosphere.

Get Cash for Catalytic Converter

Did you know that a catalytic converter contains some precious metals like palladium, rhodium and platinum? They are very precious metals and can cost up to 20,000 USD per ounce. Typically, there are 3 to 7 grams of platinum in a standard catalytic converter. A standard converter also contains 2 to 7 grams of palladium and 1 to 2 grams of rhodium. These can cost very high if extracted properly. However, Extracting the precious metals from a catalytic converter is not DIY work and cannot be done in your garage because you require modern machinery to do it. If you want Cash for Catalytic Converter then you will have to contact a recycler like us to buy it. We at TopDollarForCars provide the top cash for our customer’s converters.

Keep in mind that if your catalytic converter gets stolen it could cost up to  $2000 and you must try to keep it safe and take all the safety measures to save it from stealing. 

Always remember that even if your catalytic converter is not in good health you must still sell it quickly as it harms the environment. Signs that your catalytic converter is not in good health are:

Problems starting the engine: Your car’s exhaust gasses need to go out. If your catalytic converter is clogged, it can effectively prevent this from happening. As a result, your car may stall or sputter when you try to start it.

Deteriorating Fuel Efficiency: Clogged catalytic converters can restrict airflow through your engine, resulting in increased fuel consumption and a significant reduction in fuel efficiency.

On vehicles made after 1996, there is a diagnostic system that can check the catalytic converter. If your converter isn’t functioning properly, the air-to-fuel ratio sensors may turn on the warning light. It could be difficult for the catalytic converter to convert exhaust gasses due to internal damage. The result could smell sulfuric, like an egg rotten.

Ineffective Acceleration: Once more, the exhaust gasses must find a way out. You can experience difficulty accelerating your car due to trapped exhaust and increased pressure from a blocked converter. When you try to accomplish this, you can experience jerking or stalling.

In many places, vehicles are required to undergo routine emissions testing; if yours fails, your catalytic converter may very probably be to blame. It’s possible that failing this test will also cause the other symptoms indicated above. However, if any of the above are relatable to you then you might have a broken converter and must sell it quickly and buy another one.
