Catalytic converter

The catalytic converter reduces toxicity of the fulfilled gases.

It is authorized to fill only on unleaded gasoline.

Even insignificant impurity of a tetraetilsvinets has enough completely to put out of action the oxygen sensor and the catalytic converter.

In order to avoid possible damages and for ensuring continuous work of the engine it is necessary to observe the following rules:

- Surely carry out all established works on maintenance.
- Watch timely refueling of a tank.
- At emergence of interruptions in operation of the engine at once suppress it.
- Start by towage is possible only with the cold engine. Otherwise not burned down fuel will get to the catalytic converter. For start of the engine it is better to use auxiliary cables.

Avoid other situations at which fuel burns down not completely or does not burn down at all, for example frequent or long using a starter with short intervals between inclusions, repeated unsuccessful attempts to get the engine (start or a stop serviceable in every respect the engine thus does not mean), operation of the engine at the removed tip of a spark plug.

Surely observe the above-stated recommendations, differently not burned down fuel will get to the catalytic converter. As a result there will be a danger of an overheat and damage of the catalytic converter.

At operation of the catalytic converter, on whatever car it was established, high temperature develops. The heat-shielding screens mounted in a zone of exhaust devices, it is impossible to remove or cover with anticorrosive mastic. It is necessary to watch that during movement, at operation of the engine idling or on parking the heated parts of system of production of the fulfilled gases did not appear in dangerous proximity from inflammable materials (a grass, foliage, straw, etc.). Otherwise there is a danger of their ignition connected with risk of heavy traumas for victims and drawing of a significant material damage.
