Research on Catalytic Converter for Ford Thunderbird

If your Ford Thunderbird has difficulty accelerating when you try to climb a steep hill or it shakes and shudders when you take your foot off the gas pedal, then you probably have may have some catalytic converter problems. One of the main purposes of a catalytic converter is to reduce emissions of these harmful gasses into the air we breathe. In most states, cars are required to pass an emissions test. One of the specific failing catalytic converter problems is that your catalytic converter is not working properly and reducing the harmful gasses to a state-approved level. In these states with emissions testing, if your catalytic converter is failing, then you will need to change it on your Ford Thunderbird to pass the test.

Where is it?

Your Thunderbird's catalytic converter located inside the exhaust system. Its responsibility is to convert pollutant gasses being produced by your car into less harmful gasses. The bad gasses produced by our cars are hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide, and nitrogen oxides. The carbon monoxide is converted into carbon dioxide. The hydrocarbons are turned, by a properly functioning catalytic converter in your Thunderbird, into carbon dioxide and water and the nitrogen oxides are turned back into nitrogen and oxygen. This is all done through your catalytic converter by using the catalyst of platinum and palladium coated on a ceramic honeycomb inside a package in the exhaust.

Online Videos

If you decide to tackle the job yourself, you can get the help of some online videos. These videos can illustrate the process in detail. You can see the job being accomplished and have it narrated at the same time. You may also like to join a forum that can answer specific questions like how many catalytic converters does your car have or how do I fix my Ford Thunderbird catalytic converter problems? On these forums, you can find expert help from mechanics and experienced people that do their repairs on their own. They often provide a detailed step by step process for most major repairs on your vehicle. Videos and forums can assist you and save some headaches.

Please sit Down

As a side-note, the overheating problems for any catalytic converter can have a few origins but they all result in an improper air and fuel mixture that causes extreme temperatures that can warp or melt the ceramic honeycomb device that converts the gasses. If this happens then you will need to replace it. If you bring your car to a local repair shop to replace your catalytic converter be ready for a shock. The price will range between $707-$2132 for your Thunderbird and this doesn't include fixing any contributing problem that caused your catalytic converter to fail in the first place. If you can do the work yourself, you will save some money. Another way to save money is to shop an online parts supplier like PartGeeks.com. We can sell parts at a better price because we don't have a large overhead like the brick and mortar auto parts stores.
