    Given that my last attempt at cleaning a catalytic converter was unsuccessful, I wanted to try an alternative method. I actually consulted with Scotty Kilmer on this earlier this year about this and did some research on my own. This video shows what I came up with.

    What are your thoughts?

    Cutting it in half would only damage it. The ceramic is only there to support the important parts, the platinum and palladium. Those are the active metals in the catalytic converter which promote its reaction. . Sometimes those metals flake off of the ceramic substrate. When they do, the catalytic converter will not function anymore no matter how much you clean it. It needs those metals to function. I hope that makes it more clear for you.

    Alxonox is indeed a very powerful detergent that leaves no marks. I got it here at a very competitive price https://www.fishersci.com/us/en/brands/I9C8LRHP/alconox.html
