SOURCE: is it true that ford escape's catalytic converter

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

SOURCE: Catalytic converter shot

3 front coils? Ignition coils? If the engine had a miss for a long time the excess fuel can ruin a catalytic converter.

SOURCE: How about when u have 2 catalytic converters in the same bank 1.?

If you have more than 60K miles start by replacing the Oxygen sensor(s) that is(are) installed after the catalytic converter(s). 
P0421: Warm up catalyst efficiency below threshold. This code means that the computer is detecting the catalyst not warming up to full function quickly enough based on information from the post cat O2 sensor. 

Good luck and hope this helps.

If you don't have poor gas milage and loss of power, the cat is not restricted and not at fault, however, an engine misfire can also trigger that code.
Change the 02 sensor down by the cat first,( it's cheaper than a cat), see if that clears the code, if not, then go for the cat. You will already have a new 02 sensor, so that will eliminate those two. Hope this helped.

Advance auto and auto zone sell just the flex pipe. You will need to have someone cut the old one out and weld the new one in. costs about $20 for part vs $300 for pipew/catalitic converter attached.

Last time. I have Ford focus 2003 sedan dohc 2L. I lost a part from exhaust system. from back to front I see 1. tail pipe 2. rectangular box shaped part? Lunch Box? 3. missing part Muffler?


Starting from the front, coming off the exhaust manifold should have, 1. Exhaust pipe, 2. Catalytic converter, 3. Exhaust pipe, 4. Resonator, 5. Tail pipe. Also, there should be an Oxygen sensor somewhere around the catalytic converter.

Ford focus 1.6 petrol white smoke and smell of petrol


I'm assuming this is not a diesel...

White smoke would be very unusual, it would usually be steam rather than smoke. If I'm right, then it will be dissipating very quickly unless it's in freezing temperatures?

To get white smoke AND the smell of petrol best guess is that it's a cracked cylinder head or head gasket allowing coolant into the cylinder, the leak is so bad that the cylinder is unable to fire so the raw fuel from that cylinder is being pushed out the exhaust, along with the water (steam).

An accompanying symptom would be running rough/chugging, most noticeable at lower revs. If you drive the car like this then you'll quickly damage the catalytic converters in your exhaust so don't!

Could the catalytic converter have anything to do with the focus dying, or the o2 sensor


No the catalytic converter would not cause the engine to stop running, and the O2 sensor could make it run rough.
The battery light staying on could kill the engine.

I would highly recommend removing the 02 sensors before the catalytic converter if this makes a difference at all it is time to replace your catalytic converter it is plugged up.

The exhaust systems are of a two-piece construction for production and five-piece construction for service.
Catalytic Converter
The catalytic converter fitted to the Focus range resembles a small muffler. Because of the high temperatures at which the catalytic converter operates, the vehicle body areas around the catalytic converter are protected by heat shields. The catalytic converter controls three emissions; Hydro carbons (HC), carbon monoxide (CO) and oxides of nitrogen (NOx).
Catalyst deactivation due to poisoning
Sulphur (S) in the fuel can cause deactivation of the catalyst.
Lead (Pb) in fuel can cause a severe deactivation at levels above 5 mg per liter of fuel. It is therefore essential that vehicles with catalytic converters always operate on unleaded fuel.
Zinc (Zn) and phosphorus (P) present in some oils, can cause deactivation if oil consumption is high.
The effect of sulphur is felt most if it is released from the catalytic converter as hydrogen sulphide (H2S). This has an unpleasant odor similar to rotten eggs. Changing the fuel manufacturer may help in reducing this phenomena.
To minimize H2S emissions, it is essential that the idle CO level is within specification and that the engine emission system is functioning correctly. For additional information, refer to Section 303-08A or Section 303-08B.
ani_caut.gif CAUTION: If temperatures exceeding 900°C are achieved the catalyst substrates will start to deteriorate. It is important that the cause is defined and rectified if subsequent melts are to be prevented.
Catalyst melts are normally accompanied by loss of power due to excessive back pressure. For additional information, refer to Section 303-07A or Section 303-07B.
High substrate temperatures are caused by the ignition or the fuel systems. For additional information, refer to Section 303-07A or Section 303-07B.
Misfires at high engine speed may result in an almost instantaneous melt.
