Catalyst

GENERAL INFORMATION

The catalyst for engines with spark ignition of a working mix
Prevention

Etilirovanny gasoline harms to the catalyst and electric equipment elements, why they lose working capacity.

Thanks to that the opening of a bulk mouth of a fuel tank of cars with the catalyst becomes narrower, input of the gun of a toplivorazdatochny column with etilirovanny gasoline is prevented.

Non-compliance given below instructions can lead to catalyst or car damage.


At interruptions in ignition or in operation of the engine after its start-up in a cold condition, at obvious decrease in engine capacity or at other violations in the work, indicating malfunction in ignition system, it is necessary to address immediately in an authorized workshop of Opel firm. If necessary quickly to continue movement on small speed and at small frequency of rotation of a shaft of the engine.

• At hit in the catalyst of not burned down fuel there can be an overheat and catalyst damage.

Therefore avoid:

• frequent consecutive start-up of the cold engine;
• too long inclusion of a starter during start-up (during start-up there is a fuel injection);
• expenditures of a stock of fuel in a tank till the end (non-uniform supply of fuel leads to an overheat);
• engine start-up by pushing or towage (not burned down fuel can get to the catalyst); it is necessary to use a wire for starter connection to the auxiliary battery.

The catalyst for diesel engines


Prevention

Non-compliance given below instructions can lead to damage of the catalyst of a diesel engine or the car:

• at interruptions in operation of the engine, at obvious decrease in engine capacity or at other violations in work, it is necessary to address immediately in an authorized workshop of Opel firm. If necessary quickly to continue movement on small speed and at small frequency of rotation of a shaft of the engine.


Servicing

All works on servicing should be carried out in an authorized workshop of firm Opel according to the ordered firm periodicity. Then you can be sure that all elements of electric equipment, system of injection and ignition work optimum that low indicators of emission of harmful substances are maintained and the durability of catalytic system is provided.
