Clogged converter, running too rich or a misfiring plug.

Having no catalytic converter installed is illegal and can cause a myriad of problems. Probably not a backfire though.

Yes, internal coolant consumption can damage a catalytic converter.

User Avatar

No, the catalytic converter is downstream from the EGR valve so it has no effect on it.

User Avatar

No, the catalytic converter has nothing whatsoever to do with your defrost system.

A bad catalytic converter can cause hard starts if it has become clogged. This produces excessive back pressure in the engine.

A bad coil can damage a converter. If the engine is misfiring, it will cause raw fuel to get into the converter and that can cause failure.

User Avatar

That depends on the engine and the fuel you've used. If the engine starts burning oil a catalytic converter can fail rapidly. Some fuel additives can also cause a catalytic converter to fail prematurely.

it is ok to continue driving the vehicle while the catalytic converter is not working properly?

User Avatar

Yes, it can affect the oxygen sensors and catalytic converter.

A failed catalytic converter is one of hundreds of parts that can cause the check engine light to be on.

Yes, a catalytic converter can cause a vehicle to vibrate and stall. It will do this when it gets plugged because it causes the fuel mix to be disturbed.

User Avatar

A bad catalytic converter will cause a severely restricted exhaust system. You would notice a lack of power and performance from you vehicle and in cases of a completely blocked converter, the engine may not run.

User Avatar

Yes it can if the oil gets in the catalytic converter when due to bad rings or head gasket burned the oil gets on top of the pistons!

User Avatar

Yes, an engine misfire will cause this and will ruin the converter. It may also be partially clogged.

User Avatar

It is illegal and will cause the vehicle to pollute the atmosphere.

User Avatar

Depending on the cause of the misfire, it could damage the catalytic converter.

The catalytic converter on a 1994 Buick LeSabre can be removed to be replaced. It cannot be removed permanently from the vehicle. Removing the catalytic converter will cause the vehicle to not run properly because there are oxygen sensors attached to it that the car needs. Also, removing the catalytic converter permanently may violate state laws against pollution in some states.

User Avatar

Definitely. The converter becomes plugged and the engine can't breathe [exhale].

User Avatar

No,, the converter gets very hot and can cause a fire if no heat shield is in place.

User Avatar

Yes, it is possible. It will also cause severe loss of power.
