Question about 1995 Toyota Land Cruiser
Can a bad catalytic converter ruin a cylinder in my 1995 land cruiser? just replaced them 5 years ago... now #6 cylinder is misfiring; i am told engine needs to be replaced!!
NO, a cat only cleans up pollutants. It has no effect on engine performance unless you have a misfire and the cat works overtime and melts and cloggs the exhaust system. If your blowing grey smoke out the tailpipe then you indeed may have a bad engine. What I would want to know from the mechanic is what is the compression and why he thinks its a lower engine issue rather than a leaking valve on the head which would be alot less expensive to repair. Then again you could get a second opinion from another shop. Mechanic shops are known for gouging customers wallets, Not that i'm implying anything here.
