    Default honda civic rattling noise from exhaust

    Asalamo Alaikum brothers,

    as the title explains i am experiencing a noise which seems to be coming from the axhust outlet, it started coming when i was heating up the engine today in the morning, last night i drove the car and parked it pretty much without any problem and sound, now in the morning there is a sound and the car is so sluggish( bilkul mar gayi hey) pickup is all gone.

    i went streight to the honda gateway and got it inspected. they observed and identofied it as a broken honeycomb filter in the catalytic converter. they say it is broken. i asked how? and they said due to poor quality fuel this happens. i said my civic is in warranty as it has just driven 40k and its been 1.5 years since i purchased it, so you guys replace it in warranty, so they replied that honeycomb doesnt comes in warranty as the deffect is not from honda, and infact due to poor quality fuel. there has been other customers coming with this problem and the cases has been forwarded many times but the company refused everytime for the claim and the customer had to get rid of the problem on there own.

    the options he gave to me:
    1. buy a brand replacement part, which costs around 85,000 rupees.

    2. buy a second hand from bilalgunj almost at 50% less cost. ( no guarantee how much it will work before the same problem arises in that one as well) 35,000 rupees.

    3. open this faulty one, break the filter completely and clean it from inside of all the broken pieces, this way it will never have this problem again, but the sound of the engine will increase a little bit like it increases in sports headers. engine sound will be louder on high rpms. 3500 rupees.


    what do you guys suggest i shoud do? its a 2014 civic prosmatec vti Oriel.

    regards,
    Shehzad.

    thanks in advance.

    If it's due to poor quality fuel, and happened to the stock converter then it might as well happen again so I probably wouldn't spend 85k on that. The second option is a little better than that but what if the problem is back? The third one seems the best. Or, you could go with the first one and just take care of your fuel quality.

    I have a 2008 Civic 8th gen still running on the OEM catalytic converter...As said by a previous member, it is always due to the car backfiring or if ur dumping raw fuel inside the catalytic converter..Dirty fuel issues is a lie that honda dealerships make to satisfy the customers..I think u should first get ur car inspected that why is it running poorly..Then buy a new catalytic converter...And They should claim it in warranty if not u should contact Honda complaint center and then lodge a complaint...

    New one is too expensive..U can now just remove it if u like the sound change then keep it as it is otherwise buy one from bilal gunj..all this after finding out the cause of why all this happened..if u wont find the cause u will experience all of this again if u put a new one in or the bilal gunj one..What dealerships say is usually bull****..specially honda gateway..Honda fort is the best in my own experience..

    The Cat Converter bottle is strengthened. Get your O2 sensor checked as that may be faulty and sending mistaken values to the ECU ultimately ruining the Air Fuel mixture of your ride.

    Replace with a new one if you point the actual fault for this.
