THE GENERAL DATA

The catalyst – the reliable and simple device which does not require any service, but there are some facts which the owner should know for the maximum service life of the catalyst:

  – Not to use этилированный gasoline in the car equipped with the catalyst as lead will cover precious metals in a catalyst lattice, will reduce efficiency of their transformation, and, finally, will put out of action the catalyst;
  – Always contain ignition and fuel systems in a full order;
  – If at engine work ignition admissions are observed, do not maintain the car before malfunction elimination;
  – Not to start the engine a towage method;
  – Not to switch off ignition on high frequencies of rotation of the engine;
  – Not to use the car if from an exhaust pipe the trace of a dark blue smoke is visible;
  – After a stop of the engine an exhaust system long time continues to radiate heat significant amount, therefore it is necessary to avoid a parking on a grass and dry leaves;
  – To remember that the catalyst is fragile, therefore to avoid blows at catalyst or exhaust system removal.

The catalyst used on well adjusted car, should serve from 100 000 to 150 000 km of run of the car.

The car body is equipped by a thermal protection from the catalyst. It is forbidden to coat a thermal protection and the surfaces adjoining to it. Not to clean at all a thermal protection from the car.
