cant repair a Catalytic converter only replace at a muffler shop
Look that is plausable but the real answer is that the engine is dumping raw fuel into the converter (catalytic converter) and burning it inside the converter and this can be dangerous in some cases you can actually have a mini explosion\fire causing a good bit of damage. I hope this is helpful to anyone needing the answer..
The install is the same as a muffler. A muffler shop can do it cheaper than anyone else.
Look on the exhaust system before and after the catalytic converter.
check the catalytic converter it is probably clogged
Well one example I know of is I have a 1995 cheverolet silverado with a 5.0 v8 and I heard that cutting of the cat helps give me 20-30 more horsepower. Not as much resistance for the exhaust to go through if you take off the cat with all the baffels and other things inside it. If anyone was going to put true dual exhaust system on their vehicle it would make it louder and better. Know that it is illegal to remove a catalytic converter from any vehicle. Also any vehicle with the OBD2 system will not run properly with the converter removed.
I have a 04 Toyota Matrix that has a bad catalytic converter that I need to get replaced too. I have found that Toyota's warranty on the catalytic converter is 8 years or 80,000 miles, which ever comes first. If your car is under those requirements than you can have a Toyota Dealership repair it for free. Unfortunately my Toyota has over 120,000 miles so I will have to pay for mine out of pocket, which can cost up to $1500. If you call Toyota directly and tell them about your catalytic converter they will document it and if enough people complain, then they will recall it!! 1-800-331-4331 Plus, if you have to pay for the repair now and later on they recall it, you will get reimbursed... So I suggest anyone that has a issue to call Toyota and make sure it is documented!
I have replaced hub bearings like 4 times on my 01 grand prix, anyone else have that problem and the catalytic converter 3 x
The purpose of the catalytic converter is to change any unburned hydrocarbons into carbon dioxide and water. As engines become less efficient unburned hydrocarbons and often even raw fuel can be sent out the exhaust.Once unburned hydrocarbons get to the catalytic converter they are oxidized, resulting in the release of quite a bit of heat.If your catalytic converter is running that hot, you SERIOUSLY need a tune-up and possibly other engine work. The appropriate repairs will help your fuel economy and give you better performance. My name is Michael and I have a 1991 Cadillac Eldorado, 8 cyl. I had a mechanic from work look at my car. He noticed my catalytic converter turning red, so he said, that was my problem. So I towed my car to Meineke, and they put in a brand new converter. It still turned red. So I towed it back to my home and had new spark plugs, new spark plug wires, new pcv valve, new throttle sensor, and replaced both 02 oxygen sensors, front and back. The Catalytic Converter, is still turning red. I saw someone say, it could be the EGR valve, online. So that is what i am going to do next payday, replace that. If anyone, knows what the real problem is, let me know. I keep doing the things i see online here, but so far, the converter is still turning red. I have also paid for 2 dignostic test to find out, and because the test are by reading the information after i hold the OFF and WARMER BUTTON down. I still do not see what the main problem is. Someone please help me find out what is my problem, Thanks
This code is generic and is the same on all vehicles. P0420 = Catalyst System Efficiency Below ThresholdCatalyst System Efficiency Below Threshold. This means that the secondary O2 sensor detects that the catalytic converter isn't working as efficiently as it should. This engine code can be triggered by any one of the following: 1.) The catalyst in the catalytic converter is cracked, clogged, or otherwise damaged. 2.) The secondary O2 sensor is malfunctioning. 3.) There is an exhaust leak. 4.) The computer unit is faulty
Possibly fuel filter, possibly a worn fuel pump, possibly an electronic component that fails when hot. Possible clogged catalytic converter.
No, anyone who had all their ribs removed would die
Sinkholes, as we know it, can affect anyone.
ADHD can affect anyone
HPV can affect anyone....child, adult, male, female...it doesn't forgive anyone.
Epilepsy can affect anyone.
Check the fuel system completely, there may be restrictions in the filter or fuel lines. Also check the catalytic converter for blockage, a restriction in the exhaust system will cause this problem too.
anyone who has not had it yet
Botulism can affect anyone that eats food containing the bacteria.
There are two. and they are both on the exhaust not the engine. One is just past the exhaust manifold the other is furhter downstream ner the catalytic converter.
Anyone Know ?
It can affect anyone.
Yes, you have kinship with anyone who is your cousin, no matter how many times removed. The more removed the cousin, the more distant the kinship.
