The Catalytic Converter do not work that way. its a filter system for all the bad fumes your car produces. inside the converter is a ceramic honeycomb structure. if this ceramic is clogged then all the heat and gasses your car produces will backflow and heat up your engine

My Toyota avanza catalistic convetor gets red hot,I was told it has clogged.I have bought a new one over the weekend but it still does the samething.


It could be a number of things. Your oxygen sensor comes to mind first. It tells the computer it is too rich or lean and the computer tells the throttle body and injectors to either lighten up on the fuel or add more. If it isn't working properly it can be in a rich mode telling the computer to ease up on the fuel causing the engine to run lean and cooking the catalytic converter. DON'T PARK ON DRY WEEDS!

Underperforming catalist


readings taken downstream (exhaust) with the O2 sensor are telling your computer that the catalytic converter is not doing its job well enough (it is reading too high an exhaust content of carbon monoxide or hydrocarbons) the solution is to replace the catalytic converter assuming the engine and its other management systems are performing healthy ....good luck

1998 Honda civic LX Engine light is on


hi the crank sensor will cause no spark at the distributer so it may just be the case of replacing the crank sensor the spark will proberley return but the catilistic converter however will have to be replaced its the misfire that is what has cracked the catalistic converter so in short you need the crankshaft sensor and the catalistic converter which are expensive but the one thing about hondas they don,t breakdown that often i live in england so have no idea what it will cost you where you are the thing that is major about this is not the work but the cost secondhand converter will save you money as they only break down due to other parts failing rarely wear out on there own so it would be a safe bet a second hand one will be fine yates210456
