Toyota Camry Catalytic Converter

FMS Performance specializes in superior Toyota Camry Catalytic Converter and exhaust technology and has spent the past 30+ years earning its reputation as a global market leader. American engineered and manufactured, FMS Catalytic Converters combine efficient industrial design to produce a product that exceeds, rather than meets, the highest standards of product performance and efficiency in the industry. FMS uses Ceramic substrates with different combinations of cell density and wall thickness to meet vehicle specific requirements. FMS Direct-Fit Catalytic Converters are designed for easy bolt-on installation for the Professional Installer. Each is designed to exact the original equipment specifications. While the majority of the Direct-Fit Catalytic Converter products do not require welding, cutting or bending, limited applications may require additional welding for optimal installation.

Toyota Camry Catalytic Converter WARNING:

Catalytic Converters are emission control devices that are designed to last the life of the vehicle,  do not normally require replacement without cause. A check engine light for catalytic efficiency does not by itself condemn a catalytic converter. There could be another reason or even more parts that have failed and do not necessarily require a catalytic converter replacement. Hence per example an oxygen sensor not functioning correctly. Your vehicle should be diagnosed properly before a catalytic converter is to be replaced. If you would like to schedule an appointment for a complete diagnosis click here.

My Toyota Camry has a PO420! Does that mean my converter is bad?

NO. The P0420 code, by definition reads “bank one Catalyst Efficiency low” as a result most people will just replace the converter. A vehicle displaying this code is indicating that something is causing the converter to operate out of specification. Furthermore, a diagnostic and certainly an inspection are required before condemning any parts as “bad” or defective.

While you still may need a catalytic converter. FMS can perform a Catalytic Converter Pre-Test. The inspection is free with the purchase of needed components to correct the issue. Please make an appointment to drop the vehicle off for the complete inspection.

How can I determine my Toyota Camry emissions certification levels?

All vehicles will come with a VECI (Vehicle Emission Control Information) label located in the engine compartment.

How do I know that the catalytic converter I purchase is (CARB) California Air Resource Board approved?

You can check with CARB on the approval for your car or truck by contacting the Helpline at 1-800-242-4450. You may also contact FMS for a quote or another opinion. Finally you may click this link to select your search

What is the Warranty on my Toyota Camry CA Approved Catalytic Converter?

Federal EPA regulates a 2 year or 25,000 mile guarantee
California CARB regulates a 5 year or 50,000 mile guarantee
Factory replacement converters from the dealer have a warranty for 1 year or 12,000 miles. Most noteworthy is cars have a 8 year 80,000 mile warranty on the OE converter the vehicle came with. If your car is within the 8/80 certainly call your dealership with your VIN number so they may assist you with the warranty information.

Can I use a catalytic converter cleaner on my Toyota Camry?

Yes, we suggest Cataclean by Mr Gasket. Cataclean contains solvents that can break down deposits formed by oxidation and polymerization of hydrocarbon in fuel delivery systems. Cataclean also includes acetone which is known to improve the efficiency of fuel combustion. Acetone has been used in race cars to enhance octane rating and make fuel burn more evenly and completely. When Cataclean combusts, carboxylic acids, aldehydes and active peroxy compounds are formed. These compounds in the exhaust vapors work to clean the surfaces inside the converter. The result is the removal of deposits from the surface of the core, which increases the catalyst’s ability to remove harmful exhaust emissions such as, carbon monoxide & nitrogen oxides.

Can I use a Universal Catalytic Converter on my Toyota Camry?

First of all universal CA Approved Catalytic Converter are designed to be installed by a professional installer because they typically require some welding. The Direct Fit catalytic converter is designed so you may unbolt the original and bolt back on the replacement. For that reason the Emission compliance of the converters will meet or exceed Fed or CARB standards.

What is a High Flow catalytic converter?

Most high flow catalytic converters flow higher than OE in flow capacity. The 400 CPI cell density of most high flow catalytic converters will out flow an OE for the same application while providing the necessary functionality.

What is a Oxygen Sensor?

The Oxygen Sensor monitors the amount of residual oxygen in the exhaust. Before being released into the atmosphere, exhaust gases pass through a catalyst. Because this is where toxic substances in the gases are purified. In order to increase the efficiency of the catalytic converter, the combustion of injected fuel and inhaled atmospheric oxygen must be precisely controlled at the right ratio. Finally, the Engine ECU (computer) uses information provided by the oxygen sensor to detect the difference between the actual air-fuel ratio and the ideal air-fuel ratio to adjust the amount of fuel injection.

When should my Oxygen Sensor be replaced?

The oxygen sensors are not among the maintenance items that need to be replaced regularly, like oil and air filters, so they typically are replaced only when they fail.

Oxygen sensors are a critical component of the fuel and emissions systems because they monitor the amount of oxygen in the exhaust. For that reason they transmit the information to the engine computer. Besides that it adjusts the air-to-fuel ratio accordingly. If an oxygen sensor fails, the engine computer won’t be able to correctly set the air-fuel ratio. Which could also result in lower fuel economy. While consequently raising emissions and damage to other components, such as an overheated catalytic converter.

Signs you need an Oxygen Sensor.

No vehicle that we’re aware of has a warning light that signals when an oxygen sensor has failed. So as a result you have to rely on other vital signs to alert you when you have a bad oxygen sensor. Such as the check-engine light on the dashboard illuminating and increased fuel usage.

Also our service areas include San Bernardino. Because our store is so close we also service Redlands, Colton. Also Riverside, Rialto, Highland. Furthermore Fontana, Hesperia. Likewise Victorville, Mentone. We also service Loma Linda, Crestline, and for that reason Lake Arrowhead. Certainly Grand Terrace because it’s close to Riverside. Likewise Rancho Cucamonga, Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Cathedral City. Furthermore Calimesa, Yucaipa. As a result of our great customers in Hemet we also service Sun City, Menifee, and finally Temecula. Products available for California, New York, and Maine even more areas coming soon.

Converter Break-in Peroid

Proper diagnostics are required before replacing a catalytic converter. Replacing the catalytic converter without fixing the cause of the failure may lead to another ruined converter that may not be covered under manufacturer’s warranties.

A proper break-in period is required for a correct installation:

A replacement catalytic converter needs to undergo a proper “break-in” procedure to ensure that it will continue to work the way it is supposed to and deliver the required emissions reliability and long service life. If the converter is not warmed-up properly (broken-in), the substrate inside could be adversely affected and eventually cause the converter to fail down the road.

Here are suggested steps for a proper break-in or warm-up:

Start engine but do not touch the accelerator pedal.
Idle the engine and allow it to warm up slowly.
After 5 minutes, increase the engine speed to 2500 RPM.
Hold at 2500 RPM for 2 minutes.
Allow engine to cool down.
Road test vehicle to confirm correct installation.

Installation suggestions:

Silicone-based products or Teflon sealants should not be used on any part of the exhaust system. They are not designed to operate at high exhaust temperatures and will out gas, causing damage to O2 sensors. When a converter is replaced, the technician will need to perform a drive cycle in order to correctly reset the ECM. Follow the manufacturer guidelines for the correct drive cycle.
