Emissions and Exhaust Systems
Catalytic Converters
Mufflers and Tailpipes

When neither end piece the body or heat cover of a catalytic converter is marked how can you tell which end goes toward the engine for the proper gas or vapor flow direction?

If there is an 'Air-tube', it points forward. If the pipe on one end is "swedged" (enlarged) that goes forward. If its the universal, hi-flow type with a screen only inside, it doesn't matter. Heat shield UP.

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.

If you're referring to removing the catalytic converter from your vehicle, first off this is illegal. Secondly no modern engine will run properly with the catalytic converter removed. You must have a fully functional catalytic converter in place.

The catalytic converter is found in the exhaust system between the engine and the muffler.

A catalytic converter with holes in it needs replacing. It affects not only emissions, but the performance of the engine. Replace the converter.

No, it is no different than removing a catalytic converter.No, it is no different than removing a catalytic converter.

A catalytic converter can be ruined by a engine that is missing and dumping raw fuel into the converter.

Crawl under the vehicle and follow the exhaust pipe from the engine rearward. You will run into the catalytic converter.

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

Absolutely not. The fumes released from any engine can be deadly without a catalytic converter and severely harm the environment no matter how efficient the engine is and no car can legally not use a catalytic converter.

Some symptoms of a bad catalytic converter on a 1994 Lumina are engine stalling, engine backfiring, no start of engine, and poor power pick up. If the catalytic converter has rust holes, the vehicle will also be very loud when running.

Yes you can replace a catalytic converter. No you cannot replace it with resonators. It is illegal and the engine will not run correctly.

The catalytic converter(s) would be found in the exhaust system between the engine and the muffler.

No, the catalytic converter is part of the exhaust system. The drive train is the engine, transmission, and differential.

I believe there are ( 4 ) Bank 1 is the passenger side of the engine , sensor 1 is before the catalytic converter ( upstream ) and sensor 2 is after the catalytic converter ( downstream ) Bank 2 is the driver side of the engine , sensor 1 is before the catalytic converter ( upstream ) and sensor 2 is after the catalytic converter ( downstream ) The 2 sensors before the catalytic converter are used for air / fuel ratio for the engine The 2 sensors after the catalytic converter are called catalyst monitors

The life of your catalytic converter depends on the condition of the engine and the fuel you're using. If the fuel has the wrong additives, the catalytic converter can become plugged up. If the engine burns oil the oil vapor will build up on the catalytic converter and it can become plugged. Otherwise, if the catalytic converter isn't plugged, don't replace it.

The catalytic converters "burn" unused hydrocarbons, including raw and partially burned gasoline, and CAN burn small amounts of engine oil, providing that the engine isn't TOO messed up. But engine oil often has additives that can eventually destroy the catalytic converter. co and no is removed via Catalytic Converter

The catalytic converter bolts to the exhaust manifold on the rear of the engine on a 1999 Chrysler Town and Country.

You could try a catalytic converter
