Automotive Care

Ashland Automotive

You know the catalytic converter does SOMETHING to your car's exhaust to make it less noxious to the atmosphere.  But do you know much beyond that?  And are you aware of the things you can do to keep it working correctly? 

Zach Edwards does.  He's the boss at Ashland Automotive, and our monthly guest for a segment we call The Squeaky Wheel. 

We get into the guts of the catalytic converter and what it takes to keep it converting.

Like how well or poorly we got them ready for winter driving conditions. 

Zach Edwards knows cars and their care very well; that's why we invite him back on a regular basis for a car-talk segment we call "The Squeaky Wheel."
