Converter is a reliable and simple device which does not need service. In order that the term of its service was maximum, it is necessary to observe the following requirements.
Do not use ethylated gasoline in the car equipped with catalytic converter as lead will cover precious metals in a catalyst lattice, reducing their efficiency and as a result will put the catalyst out of action.
Always you contain systems of ignition and food in good repair.
Do not operate the car with faulty system of ignition before malfunction elimination.
If during the operation of the engine the control lamp of engine management lights up, it is necessary to address as soon as possible on service station. If the control system of the engine is damaged, then except increase in fuel consumption and deterioration in dynamic characteristics of the engine catalytic converter can fail.
Do not launch the engine by means of towage.
Do not switch off ignition with a high frequency of rotation of the engine.
Do not use additive to fuel and engine oil as they may contain the substances capable to damage catalytic converter.
Do not use the car if from an exhaust pipe smoke of blue color is emitted.
After an engine stop the system of release a long time continues to radiate heat therefore it is necessary to avoid the parking of the car on a grass and dry leaves.
