Ford F150 Universal Converter
About Universal Converter
The catalytic converter is responsible for converting harmful gasses produced by the engine into less toxic gasses. If the catalytic converter fails, it can cause considerable damage to the environment and result in failed emission tests. High-quality catalytic converters maintain emissions while ensuring smooth exhaust gas passage. Every catalytic converter is designed to achieve the highest level of quality and passes the required emission certifications. They are made of premium-grade ceramic substrate cores that meet or exceed OE standards of performance and reliability. If your vehicle doesn’t have a direct-fit catalytic converter available, then you can opt for a universal replacement Universal converters are generally less expensive. Bad catalytic converters can allow harmful gasses to escape which is detrimental to the exhaust system functioning. Use a new universal catalytic converter to ensure the exhaust system runs clean and clear. The key benefit of Universal Catalytic Converter is that it can be mounted on a wide variety of vehicle models. Catalytic converters need a temperature of 426 ° C (800° F) to effectively convert hazardous exhaust gases into non-toxic counterparts, such as carbon dioxide and water vapour. A clogged catalytic converter can cause backpressure which will reduce engine performance resulting in loss of acceleration, lowered gas mileage and engine stalling. It is necessary to carry out regular inspections of the system to make sure the catalytic converter is working efficiently. One of the reasons why catalytic converters are so expensive is because they are made of precious materials like platinum, palladium, and rhodium.
How Universal Converter Works?
A catalytic converter is a large metal box, bolted to the underside of the car that has two pipes coming out of it. One of them is connected to the engine and brings in hot, polluted fumes from the engine cylinders. The second pipe is connected to the tailpipe. As the gases from the engine fumes blow over the catalyst, chemical reactions take place on its surface, breaking apart the pollutant gases and converting them into other gases that are safe enough to blow harmlessly out into the air. The catalytic converter is an exhaust emission control device that reduces toxic gases and pollutants in exhaust gas from an internal combustion engine into less-toxic pollutants by catalyzing a redox reaction. Catalytic converters are usually used with internal combustion engines fueled by either gasoline or diesel.
Where is Universal Converter Located?
The catalytic converter is located between the engine and the muffler. The catalytic converter looks very similar to a muffler however there is an oxygen sensor installed before and after the converter.
