A catalytic converter or Diesel Particulate Filter is an integral part of a vehicles emission system and therefore great care should be taken to ensure it maintained correctly and any faults are diagnosed correctly.

All TPCATS are thoroughly tested to ensure they meet the requirements of Original Equipment part and although the development of catalytic converters started in the US back in the 1970's it was not until 1992 that they were introduced on to vehicles in Europe with the introduction of the first emission standard Euro1.

Since that time successive Europeans standards have been introduced all of which have reduced the emission levels. To meet these new standards, Catalyst Technology has moved on considerably and it is vital that the right part is fitted to the right cat otherwise this can cause other problems with the emission system.
