2.7.13. Service regulations of cars with catalytic converter in system of production of the fulfilled gases
To avoid damage of the sensor of concentration of oxygen (lambda probe) and catalytic converter it is necessary to follow the following instructions:
It is obligatory to refuel unleaded gasoline.
If etilirovanny fuel was by mistake filled in, it is necessary to replace a final collector and catalytic converter. Before installation of new elements of system of release not less than 2 times it is necessary to fill a fuel tank with unleaded gasoline completely.
Start of the heated-up engine straight off or towage is inadmissible. It is necessary to use an electric cable for engine start. Not burned down fuel at ignition can lead to an overheat of catalytic converter and to its subsequent destruction.
It is necessary to avoid the frequent cold start-up following one by one. Otherwise, in catalytic converter not burned down fuel which is burning down at heating with explosion gathers, converter is thus damaged.
In case of difficulties at start-up of the engine let's to a starter work long as during start-up there is a fuel injection. It is necessary to find and eliminate malfunction, and then to start up the engine.
At interruptions in work of system of ignition before definition of a cause of defect do not allow fuel injection at engine start-up.
Do not check spark existence at the removed tip of a spark plug.
It is impossible to carry out balance test shutdown of a high-voltage wire of ignition of one of cylinders. At shutdown of a high-voltage wire of ignition of the separate cylinder – even by means of a special tester – not burned down fuel will get to catalytic converter.
At interruptions in work of system of ignition avoid operation of the engine with high frequency of rotation of the crankshaft. Eliminate malfunction as soon as possible.
Do not leave the car on the dried foliage or a grass. The system of production of the fulfilled gases in an installation site of catalytic converter has very high temperature and radiation of heat occurs even after engine switching off.
When filling or доливе engine oil it is necessary to watch that the maximum level of oil on щупу was not exceeded. Otherwise, superfluous oil can get to catalytic converter and damage a covering or completely destroy it.
