The Katalitichesky converter

The Katalitichesky converter reduces toxicity of the fulfilled gases.

It is authorised to fill only on неэтилированный gasoline.

Even the insignificant impurity тетраэтилсвинца has enough completely to put out of action the oxygen gauge and каталитический the converter.

In order to avoid possible damages and for maintenance of trouble-free work of the engine it is necessary to observe following rules:

- Necessarily spend all established works on maintenance service.
- Watch timely refuelling of a tank.
- At occurrence of faults in engine work at once suppress it.
- Start by towage is possible only with the cold engine. Otherwise not burnt down fuel will get in каталитический the converter. For start of the engine it is better to take advantage of 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), engine works at the removed tip of a spark plug.

Necessarily observe the above-stated recommendations, differently in каталитический the converter will get not burnt down fuel. As a result there will be a danger of an overheat and damage каталитического the converter.

At work каталитического the converter, on whatever car it has been established, the heat 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 engine work idling or on parking the heated parts of system of release of the fulfilled gases have not appeared in dangerous affinity from inflammable materials (a grass, foliage, straw, etc.). Otherwise there is a danger of their ignition connected with risk of serious traumas for victims and drawing of a considerable material damage.
