If it is not speced correct for it then, yes.
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.
A failed catalytic converter is one of hundreds of parts that can cause the check engine light to be on.
A bad catalytic converter can cause hard starts if it has become clogged. This produces excessive back pressure in the engine.
it is ok to continue driving the vehicle while the catalytic converter is not working properly?
Definitely. The converter becomes plugged and the engine can't breathe [exhale].
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.
If the converter is partially clogged it can cause the engine to overheat which can cause serious problems. Other than that if will not harm the engine.
Yes, it can affect the oxygen sensors and catalytic converter.Yes, it can affect the oxygen sensors and catalytic converter.
Yes it can.
A flashing check engine light is due to a condition that is causing catalytic converter damage. Normal cause is a severe misfireA flashing check engine light is due to a condition that is causing catalytic converter damage. Normal cause is a severe misfire
Yes, it is possible. It will also cause severe loss of power.
The catalytic converter
It will cause the check engine light to come on with no benefits.
It's illegal and will cause your check engine light to go on
Yes, an engine misfire will cause this and will ruin the converter. It may also be partially clogged.
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.
Fuel/air mixture too rich, engine misfire, or damage.
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.
A faulty muffler will not cause this but a clogged catalytic converter will.
It could, along with many other possible causes.
Yes, illegal, will not help performance, will cause check engine light to come on, ................
