Signs of a Clogged Catalytic Converter in a Car

Description:

The catalytic converter is a useful component present in the exhaust system between the engine and the muffler. It converts harmful emissions into non-threatening stuffs. It is not ideal to ride a vehicle with a clogged catalytic converter, as a clogged catalytic converter can have negative environmental impacts. The performance of the vehicle’s engine can become sluggish with a clogged catalytic converter. Your vehicle will never pass the emission test with a dirty converter. Thus, try to keep the catalytic converter clean and replace the converter whenever needed. – PowerPoint PPT presentation

Title: Signs of a Clogged Catalytic Converter in a Car


1
SIGNS OF A CLOGGED CATALYTIC CONVERTER IN A CAR
2
The primary job of a catalytic converter is to
reduce the emission of different types of
hazardous pollutants to the atmosphere.
3
It converts pollutants like unburned
hydrocarbons, oxides of nitrogen, sulfur dioxide
and carbon monoxide to environmental friendly
gases.
4
However, a clogged catalytic converter would fail
to do so as a result of which emission of toxic
pollutant increases.
5
So, signs of a clogged catalytic converter should
not be neglected.
6
Timely actions should be taken to keep the
catalytic converter clean and efficient.

SIGNS OF A CLOGGED CATALYTIC CONVERTER
8
CHECK ENGINE LIGHT ILLUMINATES
9
Oxygen sensors and other types of sensors located
in the exhaust system analyzes the emission level
inside the system.
10
Clogged catalytic converter fails to regulate the
emission of hazardous pollutants as a result of
which level of pollutants increases rapidly.
11
As a result of which the ECU triggers the check
engine light to alert the driver about the issues.
12
ENGINE EFFICIENCY DECLINES
13
A clogged catalytic converter could block the
exhaust system of a car which could adversely
affect the efficiency of the engine.
14
Besides, the ECU uses data from different types
of sensors located in the exhaust system to
regulate fuel to air ratio inside the combustion
chamber.
15
A sudden rise of exhaust gases would definitely
affect efficiency on an engine.
16
Besides, it also increases the rate of fuel
consumption by the engine. So, a sudden rise of
fuel consumption is also a sign of a clogged
catalytic converter.
17
Moreover, a clogged or defective catalytic
converter could cause engine misfiring and engine
backfiring.
18
THE CAR FAILS EMISSION TEST
19
Catalytic converter is an important part of the
exhaust system of a car and it helps to get rid
of the major environmental pollutants.
20
However, a clogged or defective catalytic
converter could not do its job efficiently as a
result of which the car might fail the emission
test.
21
BOTTOM LINE
22
Honeycomb like structures of a catalytic
converter which are coated with precious metals
helps to convert environmental pollutants to less
toxic gases.
23
However, a clogged or defective catalytic
converter fails to do so as a result of which the
vehicle might fail the emission test.
24
So, it is highly recommended to keep the
catalytic converter clean.
