PaceSetter Performance Products Offers California Legal Direct-Fit Catalytic Converter For 1999 Volkswagen Beetle, 2.0L Engine

PacesetterVolkswagenPaceSetter Performance Products, designers and manufacturers of quality-made, affordably-priced exhaust systems and components, now offers a direct-fit catalytic converter for the 1999 Volkswagen Beetle with the 2.0L engine. It is approved by the California Air Resources Board (CARB) for sale and use in California and for CA-emissions-equipped cars in New York.

PaceSetter Direct-Fit Catalytic Converters utilize mandrel-bent stainless steel tubing for maximum efficiency and CNC-machined thick steel flanges for a factory-like fit and good seal. This under-car catalytic converter (#5044061), is a direct replacement for the original equipment unit and has provisions for the O2 sensor.

Using CARB-approved catalytic converters for OBD II applications, PaceSetter created an extensive selection of OBD II applications for both foreign and domestic brand cars and light trucks – from Malibu to Camry and BMW to Escape.

Mazda Tech Tip: Sulfur Or Rotten Egg Smell/Odor From The Exhaust

On some Mazda vehicles, a sulfur smell or rotten egg odor may be noticed coming from the exhaust system. The odor is usually noticed after a cold start, fast idle, extended periods of idling and full-throttle acceleration. The sulfur smell is not an indication of an engine concern and will not cause reduced driveability or durability of the engine or any of its emission components.

Poor Engine Performance Linked To Converter Failure

Today’s modern vehicles are equipped with a sophisticated emissions control device. These fail when the engine is not tuned up, as this leads to overworking the converter, overheating and possible clogging.

Diesel Exhaust Particulate Filters: How Do They Work, What Do They Do?

The Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) is a ceramic filter that has thousands of tiny channels or honeycomb-shaped openings that trap the soot onto the channel walls and prevent the particulate matter (down to 1 micron) from exiting out the tailpipe. The honeycombed inner structure is covered with a layer of a chemical catalyst that contains small amounts of precious metals, usually platinum or palladium.

Oxygen Sensor And Catalyst Efficiency

The catalyst efficiency monitor verifies the catalytic converter is operating at a high enough efficiency rating to keep exhaust emissions within the predetermined values. The PCM compares the signals from the upstream and downstream oxygen sensors to determine the state of the converter. These “tests” are called the readiness monitors.
