    "Replaced entire exhaust and this item was part of it. Couple days for shipping arrived undamaged had everything welded and installed and sounds great. This is a fraction of the cost of a direct fit/bolt on converter so was pretty much a no-brainer." posted by: on May 18, 2014

    The Volkswagen Passat's catalytic converter helps prevent global warming by converting hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide, and nitrogen oxides into harmless compounds. The cat-con's platinum and palladium catalyst is coated onto a ceramic honeycomb inside a muffler-like package attached to the exhaust pipe. Most motorists fear that a catalytic converter can reduce the engine's performance, but modern cat-cons are designed to maximize the engine and exhaust system. If there signs of carbon deposits on your Volkswagen Passat's muffler, or damage to the catalytic converter, it's recommended that you immediately replace the damaged cat-con with a new one to avoid expensive emission citations.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Ask APW
    • How long does a Volkswagen Passat Catalytic Converter last?
      Answer: Catalytic converters were designed to last the Volkswagen Passat's lifetime. With proper maintenance and use, it should at least last for 50,000 miles or 5 years. Modern cars and trucks have catalytic converters that can last up to 80,000 miles or 8 years. Catalytic converters are integral parts of the vehicle's engine and exhaust system, to achieve the lowest possible emissions.
    • What are the most common reasons why catalytic converters fail?
      Answer: Catalytic converters do not have mechanical working parts in them. Its function is to filter the harmful emissions before it's released into the atmosphere. Poor installation can cause a catalytic converter to fail. Sometimes, the converter's gaskets have not been replaced during installation. Using fuel and engine additives, which are not oxygen-sensor safe, can also contribute to a catalytic converter's failure. Poor engine maintenance can also affect the performance of your catalytic converter. Physical damage, like dents or cracks, is the most common reason why a catalytic converter breaks down.
    • What type of catalytic converter should be installed on a Volkswagen Passat?
      Answer: There are two types of catalytic converters available for a Volkswagen Passat: the common catcon or the two-way version and the high-end catcon, or the three-way version. A common cat converter offers the simplest process and it’s widely available. High-end converters on the other hand, are designed for leaner engines to maximize their efficiency. It’s important to know the right catalytic converter before installing a new one on the Volkswagen Passat.
    • When should a Volkswagen Passat's catalytic converter be replaced?
      Answer: One of the most common signs that you need to change the Volkswagen Passat's catalytic converter is when the car refuses to start. When the catalytic converter becomes so clogged, the exhaust gases can't pass through it and the engine eventually dies. Oil or coolant leaks can also contaminate the ceramics inside the catalytic converter's chamber, causing it to clog. Another reason is when you have a faulty oxygen sensor; it can alter the engine's air/fuel mixture damaging the catalytic converter. Also, when the car fails the emissions test, it's time to replace the catalytic converter.
