It would be plain stupid to remove the converter. The converter is designed into the engine controls of the vehicle. Removing it wouldn't really increase power because they have very little backpressure. If you want to remove it because its plugged or bad then you could do so but the check engine light would come on and it would never pass a smog test. It won't physically hurt the engine to remove it. Removing the converter is against the law. I would have an aftermarket converter welded in to replace your old one if its bad.
Check engine light will come on due to bad readings from oxygen sensor after cat
It is illegal to remove a catalytic converter from any road vehicle.
You lose power, engine can't breathe.
Vehicle will run -however illegal to do so.
the gases are converted to less harmful gases as nox to no2
It may or may not have damaged the converter. Remove the water and then you will see. More than likely it will be fine.
Depends on why it is noisy.
You will risk doing damage to the catalytic converter(s).
If 1996 or later it will turn the check engine light on.
Check engine light will probably come on and you will fail the emission tests.
The check engine light will illuminate and you will fail an emissions test.
I'd assume too much soot would build up and the truck would not start.
Your car's unburned hydrocarbon emissions will rise. In many states this is illegal and you can be severely fined.
Then you need to replace it with a new one. A broken converter will allow carbon monoxide into the passenger compartment, and will kill you. It is illegal to remove it and the engine will not run right with it removed.
The ideal exhaust has no unburned gas in it. Since this hardly happens, a system to clean up air pollution was created. On the exhaust stroke of your engine, unburned fuel is forced out of your cylinder by the piston. That unburned fuel then makes it's way to the catalytic* converter. The catalytic converter basically gets hot to burn your unburned fuel and puts out the combustionally correct gasses. It is possible that your catalytic converter is the reason your van is spit and sputtering, but there are also many other reasons this could occur such as: timing vacuum fuel pressure air spark Signs that it could be your catalytic converter include: abnormally loud converter abnormally shaky converter hope this is somewhat helpful
You break the law, pollute the environment, and perhaps increase your engine efficiency a bit. Nothing good as it's illegal to remove the converter. Besides the engine will not run correctly with the converter removed. You will gain nothing.
You will fail an emission test and worse case, the engine will fail to run if the cat gets plugged up.
Your car will not run correctly and will have no power and use an excess amount of fuel. Besides it is illegal to remove a converter from any vehicle.
Hard starting, loss of power, poor fuel economy, and a blowing noise under full acceleration.
In very basic terms, catalytic converters contain any or all of the following precious metals which are catalysts used to react with heat and hydrocarbons (unburned fuels) to reduce emissions. Commonly found is Platinum / Palladium /and Rhodium
You ultimately gain nothing, and your check engine light remains on constantly. If you're in a state which requires vehicle inspections, it will fail.
The catalytic converter in a vehicle uses a catalyst to convert three harmful compounds in car exhaust into harmless compounds.The three harmful compounds are:Hydrocarbons (in the form of unburned gasoline)Carbon monoxide (formed by the combustion of gasoline)Nitrogen oxides (created when the heat in the engine forces nitrogen in the air to combine with oxygen)
Assuming the engine is tuned correctly and there is a minimal amount of unburned fuel reaching the converter, it should last as long as the car itself. They break down quickly however when a vehicle has a series of misfires causing unburned fuel to reach the converter. If this happens the check engine or MIL light will flash when the converter is being ruined.
your cat converter burns unburn gass sent out of the truck in the converter then uses it in the engine it saves you gass and makes your truck not smell like its from the 40's Also it is likely the check engine light will come on and stay on. It is also illegal to remove the cat.
not much car gets loud. If its a newer car may bring lights of check engine soon on. And may affect fuel milage.
