Question about Mazda Tribute
I have someone telling me that my problem is the converters but since there is 3 of them I cannot afford to replace them at this time. I had a friend tell me that the converters can be cleaned out. Is this true.
The converters have inside them a honeycomb filling that has holes less tha 1/16 '' and many of them. Clean out is not possible. They are prone to cracking and internal disintergration which can block up the exhaust system. They run very hot and if you go through water the temp change is mainly what cracks the insides. It is possible to detect which unit is faulty by hitting the unit with the heel of your hand and listening for rattles

You probably have way too much unburned fuel in your exhaust system (how's your mileage?) or possibly a failed oxygen sensor that is giving false information to the computer.

no a dealer is not the only place that replaces these; you can do it yourself and there should be 2 of them. most of them are replaced with aftermarket ones. go to a muffler shop and they will replace them for you and you can check at an Autozone or Napa for the catalytic converters

if the converter is rattlin then it needs to be replaced because the element inside is broken. if the jeep still does not run try removing the catalytic converter to see if the restriction is too much. should start if the converter is restricted. if it doesnt maybe its whatever caused the converter to go bad in the first place
