Honda Civic catalytic problem

Poor fuel average

When we inspected the car, the diagnostics led to the findings that the car had been fitted with a catalytic designed by a silencer shop without taking the back pressure in mind. The result was that the EGR was getting strained by the poor flow of the exhaust gases. The error of P0400 and P0401 further led to the conclusion that the EGR pump was either badly choked or blanked.  The emission control system was not only poorly ruined but it was actually damaging the engine as well. We found that the flow of the exhaust was slow because of installation of plates in the silencer header / exhaust manifold.

The car showed a fuel average of only 9km/ltr and the engine power was reduced to almost half of what it is supposed to perform.

Average Improvement

Once we install our proprietary designed catalytic with a warranty of 85000km or 1 year the average jumped to actual 12-14km/ltr within city. The ECM was reset and the fuel density was relearned and the light throttle response was restored.

Euro2 Spec Fuel

Please note that the fuel in our country is on Euro 2 Specification. The catalytic system of Honda Civic and City is at Euro 4 Specification. Our fuel (specially High Octane) has huge amounts of MMT (also found in injector cleaners and octane boosters). This can cause the catalytic cleaners to choke earlier than expected. The complete blockage usually occurs during long drives when the oxidation is dumped on the top of catalytic substrate. Under these circumstances the engine struggles to move @ speeds in access of 80km/hr. We have also seen completely melted or broken catalytic converters.

Catalytic substrate is broken and removed from the system to keep the car going while travelling. This will cause poor fuel average and early failure of valves but still is the best option. The silencer shops in Pakistan are also very keen in removing the honeycomb substrate because it sells for huge amounts.
