    Default See what was inside my civic's Catalytic Converter...!!!

    It's melted and was probably blocking the exhaust. Please ignore my thumb...

    This failure only happens when raw hydrocarbons hit the hot converter honeycomb in absence of air, the converter is a thermal reactor at that time - and a localised fire sets off in it of immensely high magnitude. Carby cleaner or petrol dumped in, running extra rich (even on CNG) can cause this.

    It has nothing to do with engine heat. In all honesty you should contact Honda and ask them why this happened if your car's service level was at factory tune (meaning you did not fiddle with the fuelling)

    btw it does not have bomb making materials in it, its got precious metals in it, far more expensive than gold.

    Also see this air intake pipe. I think the CNG venturi is blocking too much air.

    Sir please see the air blocked by the CNG venturi in the intake pipe in the picture i posted. Could this be causing the car to run rich on petrol and performance issue on high rpm's ??

    It wasn't broken bro. It was blocking the proper flow of exhaust.

    CNG can be a cause but this mostly points to ignition system failure, e.g. if your car had shorted spark plug coils after washing the engine.
