    Three way catalytic converter

    Three-way catalytic converter cautions

  • Keep your engine properly tuned. Certain engine malfunctions, particularly involving the electrical, fuel or distributor ignition systems, may cause unusually high three-way catalytic converter temperatures. Do not continue to operate your vehicle if you detect engine misfire, noticeable loss of power or other unusual operating conditions, such as engine overheating or backfiring. A properly tuned engine will help avoid malfunctions that could damage the three-way catalytic converter.
  • Do not park your vehicle over combustible materials, such as grass or leaves, which can come into contact with the hot exhaust system and cause such materials to ignite under certain wind and weather conditions.
  • Excessive starter cranking (in excess of one minute), or an intermittently firing or flooded engine can cause three-way catalytic converter or exhaust system overheating.
  • Remember that tampering or unauthorized modifications to the engine, the Electronic Control Module, or the vehicle may be illegal and can cause three-way catalytic converter or exhaust system overheating. This includes:
    - Altering fuel injection setting or components.
    - Altering emission system components or location or removing components.
    - Repeated use of leaded fuel.

    NOTE: Unleaded fuel is required for vehicles with three-way catalytic converters.

    Electrical system

    12-volt system with voltage controlled generator. Single wire system in which the chassis and engine block are used as conductors, grounded on the chassis.

    Voltage: 12 V
    Cold start capacity (CCA): 600 A
    Reserve capacity (RC): 115 min
    Capacity (Ah): 70
    If you must replace your battery, be sure to replace it with a battery of the same cold start capacity and reserve capacity as the original (See the decal on the battery).

    Max. current: 140 A

    Starter motor
    Power: 1.4 kW

    Spark plugs
    P/N272313-8 or equivalent

    Tightening torque: 22 ft. lbs. (30 Nm)
    Firing order: 1-2-4-5-3


    The distributor ignition system operates at very high voltages. Special safety precautions must be followed to prevent injury. Always turn the ignition off when:

  • Replacing distributor ignition components e.g. plugs, coil, etc.
  • Do not touch any part of the distributor ignition system while the engine is running. This may result in unintended movements and body injury.

    Charge air cooler (Intercooler)
    Turbocharged engines employ a turbocompressor to force air into the engine inlet manifold and a charge air cooler to cool the compressed inlet air. The resulting increase in air flow raises pressure in the intake manifold and increases engine power over that developed by the normally-aspirated engine. The charge air cooler (which resembles a radiator) is located between the turbo-compressor and inlet manifold.

    Fuel system
    The engine is equipped with a multiport fuel injection system.
