Honda Civic Turbo
Honda civic turbo x comes with a turbo engine and a direct fuel injection system. The DFI explains the minor clicking noise. When you press the accelerator pedal clicking noise may be heard and it is from the GDI pump. A lot of people think the noise is coming from tappets or more seriously a valve. A simple test for it is to release the gas pedal at 3000 RPM. If clicking noise goes away then everything is fine.
Honda civic turbo x comes with a catalytic converter that is on top of the waste-gate of the turbo. It is the latest design that enables quick removal of exhaust gases. Cleaning the catalytic converter is possible but involves removal of turbo and components, We have included some pictures in this article to explain the process. If left uncleaned, the downstream pressure can break the substrate completely which will leave the owner with the option of buying a new catalytic only. Please call our no. for a new catalytic converter or catalytic converter cleaning.
First of all you have to inspect the condition of catalytic by removing the top most oxygen sensors. Please also note that catalytic converter cleaner and additives actually dump more residual particles on the catalytic converters. They are high in MMT. It is not good to use them on daily basis. Any kind of soot like material will eventually create more back pressure on the turbo head and damage the impeller completely. It is one of the nicest cars to own from the line of cars available in the Pakistani market.
If your car is remapped, it can be completely down piped and the ceramic substrate can be cleaned. This requires professional level expertise as the input motor at the boost may throw some weird DTC’s like wastegate actuator trouble. VTC error or P0420 accompanied by a P0430 error.
It is recommended to clean the intake plenums and wastegate area before installing the catalytic back. Many Honda civic turbo x cars have given stuck wastegate error. It comes with a plunger that is electrically controlled. In case of Stuck wastegate, your car’s turbo can get permanently damaged. If you experience any burning smell with a check engine light, then it may mean that the wastegate is stuck and all the exhaust is spinning the turbo too much. This will overheat the Turbo and cause the seals to blow.
