    Default Catalytic Convertor

    My 2009 Corolla's Catalytic Convertor got choked at 52000 km, even though i used mix of Hi-octane and super in Islamabad. Got it cleaned from G-8 silencer walla for Rs. 2500, by blowing air through it. Brownish powder comes out. Keep blowing till powder stops coming out. Before cleaning, engine performance was very poor and fuel economy got worse. Now both are ok. Mechanics tend to mislead you. One chap (supposedly Toyota expert) in F11 suggested to change the clutch, etc etc.

    Some of my friends got their CatCon removed, but I dont recommend that, as it can result in more noise, pollution and possibly computer problem. Cleaning is easy and the recommended method.

    I would like to hear from others what their experience was and how they tacked the problem, and at what cost.

    cat cannot be cleaned! iv read many forums where mechanics who have more than 40yrs ka experience they have even written cat cannot be cleaned! and whoever says it can be cleaned and has taken money for it has only fooled the other person and ripped the other person off!

    Catcon cannot be cleaned simple as that. All that mechanics and silencer walas do is make holes in it so that exhaust gas can move freely.

    cat cannot be cleaned because the catalyst inside the cat wears out with time leaving behind an empty filter which we see as the honeycomb! hence cats are changed n not cleaned!

    you will be right in your boot's according to the toyota book's they dont service the CAT's but their is a procedure to bring back your dead CAT's back to normal I had done it with Emission's test's and result's they can be cleaned if you want to know how then I can tell you an HTML address where those guy's had a large no of satisfied customer's with test report's..................
