Dodge Catalytic Converter Articles

The name Dodge started out as the Dodge Brothers Car Company in 1914 because it was owned by two brothers, Horace and John Dodge. They began with manufacturing engines for Ford until they built a Dodge car having a 3.5 liter four-cylinder engine with a dyna starter that soon earned its reputation for ruggedness and were more popularly used as staff vehicles and ambulances during the World War I. Selling both cars and trucks, Dodge currently acts as Chrysler's performance division. They offer unique vehicles. The current Dodge models sold in the United States in the present includes a minivan, pickup, SUV, grand caravan, sedans, cargo vans, vans, convertible, and coupes.

Can you still remember the history of Dodge back in the mid 70's? It was that time when what was left of the Dodge muscle car models begun to come out with Dodge Catalytic converters. This is in connection with the new rule that time about the emission standards. Without a proper catalytic converter, you won't be allowed to drive your car. It's either they confiscate it or they make sure that you won't be able to drive it for quite sometime because your license won't be approved.

Since pollution remains a big problem all throughout the world, this emission standard is one of the ways to help prevent too much production of harmful elements that could ruin our environment. From surveys, the bigger portion of the fumes are produced by vehicles. This is why catalytic converters are important. The catalytic converter cleans up this nasty pollution causing chemicals before it is released from the engine.

Because catalytic converters are exposed to harsh chemicals, it breaks down quite too often and must be changed as soon as possible to enjoy driving. In replacing catalytic converters, you should remember that the alternate part is of the same size, shape, and brand as that of the original. This is to ensure that what you are putting in your car has an exact compatibility needed to function well.
 
Dodge Catalytic Converters, though there's not much of the Dodge cars left today, can still be found inside Dodge cars and are still available at chosen shops. Through the years, the Dodge catalytic converters performance has gotten better about controlling the exhaust flow.
 
Although some complains that having catalytic converters slows down the vehicle, well, they are wrong. Look at Dodge's Ram SRT10 and Viper, they wear Dodge catalytic converter and no one's calling them slow. Other Dodge cars that carries catalytic converters in it are the 1978 Aspen, 2002 Neon, and many more.
 
Dodge Catalytic Converter types available are Dodge Dakota catalytic converters, Dodge Ram catalytic converters, and Dodge catalytic converters for most vans and cars of Dodge. So if you think your car needs a new catalytic converter, don't ignore it. It's for your good anyway.

Closer Look at Dodge Automobiles

Your Dodge catalytic converter is an important part of your exhaust system, responsible for cleansing some of the environmentally damaging substances from the exhaust fumes produced by the internal combustion engine of your vehicle. By reducing the amount of pollutants released into the air, your Dodge catalytic converter makes breathing safe and healthier for everyone, which makes it very important that it is kept in working order at all times. In fact, without a working Dodge catalytic converter, your vehicle will not pass the annual inspection that you must go through in order to get your sticker. There are steps that you can take to help preserve your Dodge catalytic converter, helping to make it last as long as possible. Because your combustion system and exhaust system work in close cooperation, it should come as no surprise that a problem in your combustion system can damage your Dodge catalytic converter. For example, if your spark plugs are not working, which can disrupt the fuel burn, or your valve gaskets are malfunctioning, your Dodge catalytic converter can be overwhelmed. Eventually, however, as all parts do, your Dodge catalytic converter will need to be replaced. And, when it does, we'll be able to provide you with a high quality, reliable and affordable replacement for your original Dodge catalytic converter, made to the same high industry standards and sure to last just as long, with proper care and maintenance. You'll find an excellent selection in our online catalog, home to our extensive inventory of aftermarket Dodge parts and accessories. You can use our securely encrypted online ordering system to order your Dodge catalytic converter or you can place your order with a fast toll-free phone call.

FAQs—Dodge Catalytic Converter

  1. Is there a definitive test I can put my vehicle through to ensure that my catalytic converter is working at optimal conditions?

You can examine your catalytic converter visually to see if it's working well. However, when you're really doubtful about your catalytic converter's conditions, you can opt for a back pressure test to determine its state. If the converter is plugged in and it turns very hot after you give your vehicle a run, that's your cue that something's wrong. When the exhaust is restricted out of the tail pipe and when the converter produces even the slightest rattle when you tap it, your converter is definitely in trouble.

  1. Can I rely on my sense of smell to tell if my Dodge catalytic converter is defective?

Yes, but only to a certain extent. Typically, a defective catalytic converter produces a nasty, acidic smell that is similar to that of a tray of rotten eggs. You may also notice a sulfurous odor. While this can be a good sign of a faulty catalytic converter, you still have to look for other symptoms just to be certain.

  1. Can I still pass an emission test even when something is wrong with my vehicle's catalytic converter?

It's very unlikely for you to pass the emissions test with a faulty catalytic converter. The color of smoke emitted by your vehicle's exhaust system alone will give you away. If you still go through the emissions test and fail, you will be asked by officials to have your catalytic converter and other damaged parts repaired or replaced. Better save yourself the trouble and just head to the repair center straight away rather than try your luck with an emission test.

  1. If a catalytic converter looks like a muffler, how can I tell the difference between the two?

A catalytic converter only resembles a muffler in shape, but that's about it. You will know the difference once you see the two together. The catalytic converter is located between the muffler and the engine. It's somewhere below the passenger's side of the vehicle.

  1. My Dodge catalytic converter is defective so I had it removed. I'm planning to replace it but I still haven't bought a new converter. Can I drive my vehicle even when it has no catalytic converter?

Yes, but no. Although your vehicle will likely run even without a catalytic converter, you shouldn't drive it because it's against the law in most states. As part of the emissions control of your vehicle, the catalytic converter is a crucial component that you can't just dispense out of your own liking. If you need to use your vehicle, have the faulty catalytic converter replaced first.

  1. Is a faulty catalytic converter a symptom for another vehicle-related problem?

In some cases, it can be. A catalytic converter can fail for a number of reasons. Sometimes, its breakdown can be the result of a damaged cylinder head gasket. When the gasket is punctured, oil and coolant leak into the combustion chamber so they get burned in the cylinders. Another problem that you can pin down from an impaired converter is a dysfunctional ignition system. The possibilities here are wider, so it's always best to have your Dodge tuned up on a regular basis.
