Hearing a Rattle? | Catalytic Converter

If you hear a rattle coming from under your car while it’s standing still, you need a New Orleans car repair expert.

You were sitting at a traffic light on the way home last night when you heard it – a rattling sound coming from under your car. That was disturbing enough, but when you got on I-10, you found it was hard to get your car up to speed. Now you’re considering taking your car to the mechanics at Twin Tire and Auto Care rather than going to the Crescent City Farmers Market to wander through the veggies.

Taking your car to a trusted New Orleans area car repair expert like those at Twin Tire is the right thing to do. From the sounds of it, you likely have a broken catalytic converter. As Angie’s List explains about a rattle in the exhaust: “There is a catalytic converter in the exhaust that is part of your emissions and it has a ceramic substrate and what happens is that substrate will break down. …

“As it breaks down, it will originally break down into a couple different pieces, then it will bounce around in there until it gets to the size of golf balls or rocks and when that happens it blows back through the exhaust system. [At that point] you’ll find that you struggle to get over 50-55 miles-per-hour.”

Twin Tire has been the car repair and tire service shop of choice in New Orleans, Gretna and Metairie since 1973. We have three convenient locations for car and light truck repair and service: Marrero, Hammond and Harvey. We also service heavy commercial vehicles at our Harahan location.
