The one thing that prevents your Ford Explorer from becoming a smog and fumes factory is its first-rate catalytic converter. This hot box is responsible for converting detrimental gases emitted by your vehicle into its less-harmful form. Usually, your catalytic converter can stay in good shape for your car's entire life span. But due to substrate meltdown, catalyst poisoning, or just simple wear due to old age, a catalytic converter failure is still plausible. Your catalytic converter is in a bad condition if you experience reduced engine power, inefficient fuel burning, and weak gas pedal acceleration power. Spare yourself from complete engine damage or a failing grade of "F" in your emissions test. Replace your old stock with a new and efficient Ford Explorer catalytic converter.

Frequently Asked Questions

Ask APW
  • What is the average working temperature of Ford Explorer catalytic converters?
    Answer: The ideal temperature at which Ford Explorer catalytic converters operate is at 1,200 to 1,600 degrees Fahrenheit. When the temperature inside the cat converter goes beyond this point due to an increase in the amount of pollutants, for instance to 2,000 degrees, the internal structure of the converter will eventually melt. The melted platinum, rhodium, and palladium components of the internal converter will damage the ceramic substrate. This will result to a diminished converting efficiency or total catalytic converter breakdown.
  • Can faulty spark plugs cause problems to the Ford Explorer's catalytic converter?
    Answer: Yes. One of the leading causes of catalytic converter failure in most Ford Explorers is damaged spark plugs. When spark plugs experience misfire or if they don't fire at all, the exhaust system is invaded by unburned fuel. Unburned fuel ignites as it enters the converter, resulting to total ceramic catalyst meltdown.
  • Do all Ford Explorer models have the same number of catalytic converters?
    Answer: No. The number of catalytic converters varies from one Ford Explorer model to another. This is usually determined by the engine used by the vehicle. Most Ford Explorers have V6 and V8 engines. V6 engines require two catalytic converters, while V8 engines require four.
  • Is it normal for the Ford Explorer's exhaust system or catalytic converter to smell like rotten eggs?
    Answer: The smell of rotten eggs released by Ford Explorer exhaust systems is usually caused by a cold engine and a rich fuel condition. This can still be normal if the stench disappears after the engine warms up. But if the disgusting odor stays, the catalytic converter might be damaged.
  • What is the best type of catalytic converter for a Ford Explorer?
    Answer: There are three types of catalytic converters sold in the online market today. These are the two-way, three-way, and the three-way + air catalytic converters. For Ford Explorer models with computerized fuel and emissions controls, the three-way cat converter is the best type. It actually works like the two-way catalyst but the reduction of oxides of nitrogen and the oxidation of hydrocarbons and carbon monoxide is done with a single catalyst. It also contains cerium, an oxygen storage element that boosts the catalyst process.
