    Unhappy Does the Civic 2003 have a catalytic converter?

    Guys i'm have severe pick issues with my car done a lot of things but still it has a slow at times jerky acceleration. On steep roads the car is like it has 8 ppl in it and im driving on CNG which i am not. Someone suggested it might be due to a choked catalytic converter so any idea if a Honda Civic VTI 2003 has one ??

    Its a City n i Love it coz its my ride

    Have your fuel injectors checked for symmetric fuel flow

    @hammie21

    The JDM model of ur car comes with a CAT, the pakistani one im not sure abt but its easy to check....slide under ur car and look for some dabba or dholki just after the headers on the bottom portion of the car.

    Default Fuel Injector Servicing

    Quote Originally Posted by hammie21 View Post

    Every time we turn off our engine, the last drop of petrol evaporates on the pintle of the fuel injector and leaves behind deposits and varnish. Heat in the chamber bakes the fuel residues and makes it stubborn to remove. This gunk collects on the pintle, and over time it results in injector clogging and leaking. The pintle caps are constantly exposed to fuel evaporation which leaves behind a powdery residue and affects the spray pattern. Usage of fuel additives for cleaning your fuel injectors is temporary solution. It passes through the injector for a short time and makes little cleaning but on the other hand it is harmful for the fuel filters and engine itself. Therefore it is recommended to change engine oil after usage of fuel additives.
    I provide off vehicle fuel injector servicing on the same technology which is used internationally. The injectors are electronically tested, flow volume and spray patterns are analyzed and later serviced with the acoustic technology. The solution developed for cleaning is aqueous and is higher than PH 7 level therefore it does not cause any harm to the injector. The injectors are checked again for flow volume and spray patterns after servicing and mounted back to the vehicle. I welcome your enquiries on fuelinjectors2606@gmail.com

    first of all check weather the engine check light is on or not.... if its on then get to a mechanic ASAP otherwise if its not on then get your fuel injectors checked... there might be some problem in the spray pattern and volume.... if the problem remains than it can be a cloged CAt or bad exhaust muffler....
