Why Your Car's Catalytic Converter Is Very Valuable by HottieCoach(f): 6:46am On Mar 17
A catalytic converter is a device incorporated in the exhaust system of a motor vehicle, containing a catalyst for converting pollutant gases into less harmful ones.

This device had been available in vehicles since the 1970's

The catalyst's job is to speed up the removal of pollution. The catalyst is made from platinum or a similar, platinum-like metal such as palladium or rhodium. A catalytic converter is a large metal box, bolted to the underside of your car, that has two pipes coming out of it.

The catalytic converter is very valuable because of the precious metals that are included in the converter, such as platinum, or platinum-like material such as palladium or rhodium. So, the more expensive the material, the more expensive it is to replace.

Due to the fall of the naira and a rise in the cost of precious metals like platinum and palladium, the contents of the catalytic converter is highly sort after. The parts have become an unusual windfall for thieves, who can make hundreds of naira from selling them to auto parts suppliers or scrapyards. Catalytic converters can be melted and the highly valuable metals, like palladium and rhodium, extracted.

At present a typical 2003-2018 Toyota Corolla catalytic converter (its content) can fetch between ₦100,000 -150,000.

How to prevent catalytic converter theft.

1 Do not leave your vehicle unattended with your roadside technician.

2. If you do, tell him bluntly that you have your catalytic converter intact and it should not go missing .

3. If for any reason you have catalytic converter failure and it has to be unblocked , collect all the contents, tie it up in a bag and contact me I'll show you where to sell it for good money cheesy

I sent my car to my painter, it came back sounding like a v8 , I suspected something was wrong , took it to my panelbeater, he inspected and told me the catalytic converter under the car was stolen. I picked up the painter, at the end he spent ₦200,000 getting a Toks catalytic converter for my corolla


You can also get this product if you don't want to buy a catalyst.

shocked But you now Rho7-dium and Pall-a-dium just by their names are killers of Carbon atomic number 6 and since we are carbon beings i suspect these things are also stolen to make poisonous substance to kill humans or rodents. these are radioactive carbon being killers just from the etymology of the names.

atomic number of pall-a-dium is 46 which tells me it is a generator. and so it is a generator of death in carbon beings and if ths stuff is stolen from your car in the west its because someone wants to poison someone but doesnt want to buy poison fromthe store because they have CCTV everywhere and you will be fished out if you bought poison from a store.

atomic number of Rho 7-dium is 45 which tells me it can end your life pata pata . potent poison

both of these elements can be used to induce cancer in people

Word on the street says it is called the indomie . It is quite expensive.
My tip: stay with your Mechanic /Panel beater when getting your car fixed. Also, know how your car sounds.

Stolen catalytic converter? Burnt out catalyst?

No issues.

This device will clear your pending P0420 or P0430 codes on your vehicle.

It is a specially designed O2 sensor spacer with catalytic converter inside.

No need buying catalytic converters any more, just install this device and code will not come back.

As usual our products come with money back guarantees cool (beat that)

Asides the pollution it causes to the atmosphere, does it also affect fuel consumption?

I heard if removed from a vehicle, fuel economy gets reduced.. How true is this?
