Mazda is well known for their uniquely styled and designed vehicles. But more than the vehicles, there is something more amazing in this Japanese auto manufacturing company—and that is their commitment to protect the environment. This commitment is well laid in the company's Global Environmental Charter. In the said charter, Mazda promised to contribute in creating environment-friendly vehicles, use environmentally sound principles in the manufacture of their vehicles, and find ways to further help in improving the environment in general. In the said charter, one will also find the guidelines for action that the company created to carryout these principles.

There's no better way to prove that one's commitment in protecting the environment is sincere than actually doing it. And as an initial response to this challenge, Mazda has equipped all of their gasoline-powered vehicles with high quality Mazda catalytic converters. Mazda may not be as technologically advanced compared to the other Japanese auto manufacturing companies, but they make sure that utmost quality is achieved whenever they manufacture vehicle parts that are essential in protecting the environment. That's why with a Mazda catalytic converter installed in your vehicle, you can be assured that your vehicle is environmentally safe and sound.

But how does catalytic converters protect the environment? All gasoline-powered engines create harmful byproducts during its combustion process. Among these harmful substances that are created are carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons, and nitrogen oxides. Unluckily, most Mazda vehicles are equipped with gasoline-powered engines. In order for Mazda vehicles to convert these harmful substances into less harmful ones before they are released to the outside environment, these substances must pass through the catalytic converter. Catalytic converters are emission-control products designed to reduce the harmful substances emitted by vehicles. Inside a catalytic converter are two catalysts: a reduction catalyst that converts nitrogen oxides into nitrogen and oxygen, and an oxidation catalyst that converts the carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons into less harmful carbon dioxide and water.

Catalytic converters are so essential in protecting the environment, that's why the law requires every vehicle that would be driven on public roads to be equipped with properly functioning catalytic converters. So if the catalytic converter of your Mazda is no longer working properly, you better replace it with another one. Catalytic converters may fail because they are clogged or they are poisoned. A clogged catalytic converter may easily be determined because if such condition exists, you'll notice that your vehicle doesn't go any faster no matter how hard you push the gas pedal. You'll also notice a decrease in your vehicle's gas mileage if the catalytic converter is clogged.

So if your Mazda is already eating too much gas or fails to accelerate no matter how hard you step on the gas pedal, it may be the proper time to replace its catalytic converter.
