14.11.2. That ruins the catalyst

GENERAL INFORMATION

Refusal of catalytic converter can occur for several reasons though, usually, it is process gradual, to catch which without the special equipment it is impossible.

"Core" of the majority of catalysts is made of ceramics - a material known for the fragility. The car can get for the speed to a hollow, hit about something or even it is simple to "strike" the catalyst case on a stone, and from it catalytic "brick" can burst. After that loss by "core" of the working qualities – time business.

The converters of new generation containing a metal monolith, are not so vulnerable in this respect. To break them, of course, it is possible, but, in any case, not so simply.
