Xtrail Cat 2006 model T30


Hey

I have done a bit of research but haven't been able to find a answer.

Does the 2006 model T30 Xtrail still have a problem with the cat breaking up and ending up in the engine?
I know the recall was done in 2005 so does that mean my 2006 model will be fine?
I don't have the money to replace a blown engine and now that the cars got over 160k on the clock I'm starting to get paranoid.

Thanks

Re:


This is not limited to the 2006 model, as every single car with a ceramic based cat. converter runs the risk of having this cat. converter flaking when under extreme load and heat. Having said that, there has only been a few cases of damaged cat. converter which resulted in severe engine damage. If you can't afford a full exhaust system replacement (including replacing the cat. converter of which you have 2 in the 2006 model), there is nothing else you can do, as replacing the full exhaust is the only real solution for definite peace of mind.

It seems like the worst design though that's its possible for the cat to end up in the engine due to its location in the manifold.


Do all 2006 models have 2 cats? Pretty sure mine being early 2006 doesn't as the manual states its the 132kw engine compared to the reduced 123kw in the 2 cat version.

I could be very [sign in to see URL] never noticed 2 cats.

Yours could have been manufactured in 2005 and plated as 2006, in which case you would have one. But it is easy to identify the second cat. converter by looking under the car, the second cat. converter would be under the driver's side and it would look like this:

I don't think you understood what I said to you in my first reply.

The only way to change and/or upgrade the cat. converter is to replace the Full exhaust system and since you mentioned that you are on a tight budget and can't aford to have this done, just drive with what you have, as there is no cheap option to upgrade the full exhaust and it would be a complete waste of money if you are only doing it to get rid of the cat. converter anyway.

Your car lasted 160,000kms trouble free, so if you are not pushing it hard, it should be fine for many years to come.

Not really sure where you got the idea I didn't have the money to replace the exhaust system? I said I don't have the money to replace a blown motor....

Anyway I will contact the local exhaust shop and see what they can recommend. The car has had a pretty hard life with lots of knocks and bangs on the exhaust system so it could do with replacement anyway.

Sorry then, I must have misunderstood what you meant.

Plenty of information is available in the exhaust upgrades section on the available options to you to upgrade, so yell-out if you need further assistance.

Is it possible to just replace the exhaust manifold and precat (on the T31) rather then replacing the full exhaust system? I understand I wont get the performance benefits of a full exhaust upgrade but is there any issues if I just wanted to replace the manifold & precat for piece of mind ?
