my catalytic converter light is on my 2005 c180 coupe at 45000 klms ? would a cleaning agent sort it ?


Hopefully i can help..

Normally cleaning agents wont work - depending on the nature of the fault in regards ***** ***** cat converter or emissions fault - taking it off and cleaning has mixed results and normally ends up having it replaced anyway..what has to be done is a full diagnostic test/live testing as well as a exhaust gas machine on the car to see if this cat converter problem isnt a knock on effect from another fault like a missfire/injector fault or problems with the lambda sensors on the exhaust system that monitor the gases or even a leak in the exhaust system itself around the cat as above thats about the next step from here,proper testing before condeming the cat converter and buying a new one..I do hope this helps
