2005 Honda Accord Catalytic Converter
The combustion inside a car's engine releases carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, and hydrocarbons as exhaust gases. The catalytic converter in the exhaust pipe breaks these gases down into less dangerous substances. Without it, you will be putting yourself and the environment at risk. AutoZone stocks replacement 2005 Honda Accord catalytic converter options from reputable brands.
When To Change Your Catalytic Converter
A catalytic converter should last around ten years or so, but you may have to replace it sooner if it's clogged or physically damaged. You'll notice that your car isn't accelerating as it should and that the fuel efficiency has dropped. Sometimes, you may experience a rattling sound from under the vehicle. Lastly, a failed catalytic converter will prevent your car from passing an emissions test and the Check Engine light will probably be on.
Replacing Your 2005 Honda Accord Catalytic Converter
You can replace your 2005 Accord catalytic converter if you have the equipment to raise your car off the ground safely. Once the vehicle is raised, slide underneath and look for a cylindrical structure in the exhaust pipe. This is the catalytic converter, and it's typically bolted onto the exhaust using flanges at either end. To replace it, undo the bolts on the flanges or cut the pipe, remove the catalytic converter and install a new one.
