Does Lacquer Thinner Clean Catalytic Converters? -EricTheCarGuy
Link to Scotty Kilmer's Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5icTmYItwiE After watching Scotty's video I was curious if it would actually work. Since we know from my video on diagnosing catalytic converters that the catalytic converters in my Subaru were bad, I though it was a perfect opportunity to try out this theory. I used about 1 quart of lacquer thinner to about 7 gallons of gas. I drove a total of 200 miles and tested the converters. The testing showed a very slight improvement but nothing that I would call significant. It was worth a try. I can say that I did not notice any issues with drivability during or after the test. It may not have fixed the problem, but it didn't seem to cause any other problems either. I feel the check engine light that came on was just a coincidence and not the result of putting lacquer thinner in the gas tank. Here's some useful links for you.

RX-8 Rotary Reborn - Best Motoring International Vol. 10
Enjoy!





RX-8 Rotary decarb part 1
Decided at 25,000 miles, it was time for a decarb. Used seafoam rather than Mazda's cleaner. I placed two tubes in the can of seafoam, and ran each line to a separate vacuum port, so I could do both rotors at the same time rather than separately. After sucking up all the seafoam, let it sit for a little over an hour. Then I put a cup of Idemitsu in the empty seafoam can, used the two tubes again, to help lube the rotary chambers during initial startup. Afterwards, low end torque seems improved, and throttle response is way up, most notably when starting out from a stop. No bogging down, other than when I clutch poorly ;). Idle is PERFECT. While idling, there's no vibration from the engine whatsoever. Like new. And as expected, the check engine light came on afterwards, and stayed on for about a day before going out. Update 03.08.12: Some have questioned how well the Catalytic Converter has held up after the seafoam cleaning.. First off, 14,000 miles later, it appears to be fine. No power loss or other symptoms of a failed cat. However, that doesn't mean that the life of the cat hasn't been shortened. Looking back, I should have disconnected the cat before this procedure, and will do that in the future, and would advise anyone else with a cc and doing this procedure to do the same thing. For those that have questioned whether or not I should have introduced seafoam into the engine at all: Mazda has a decarb procedure of their own, using a product similar to seafoam.

More Tutorials on my CHANNEL: http://www.youtube.com/user/moccina *This video is an EXPERIMENT I wanted to try on my car, and is for INFORMATIONAL purposes ONLY. This fix is for off-road use. The content shown in this video is not intended to encourage emissions test cheating. I enjoy the process of testing theory because you always learn something new, regardless of the outcome. Using a spark plug defouler kit, I install a "buffer" in between the downstream oxygen sensor and the catalytic converter. Quite often, frustrated car owners get the P0420 code for reasons other than a bad cat. I have heard of people getting the code just because they removed the converter and reinstalled it. It can also happen if you run your vehicle out of gas etc... etc... It is also common for car owners to get the P0420 code, replace the converter, and both o2 sensors-- only to have the code come back after 1000 miles or so. This can be a very frustrating, time consuming and of course-- expensive venture. Here is one way to resolve the issue. Good luck and have fun!
