Timing belt was replaced & afterwards found catalytic converter stopped up and then timing belt was loose and hitting timing cover. What does converter being stopped up have to do with the timing belt? Could it be building up combulstion in the engine and making cam or crank gear or belt skip a tooth or loosen up? This is a dohc engine.

Hi karendew,

Thank you for the donation.

Catalytic converter has nothing to do with the timing belt excessive slack.

The timing belt was not properly adjusted/installed resulting in the belt slapping against the cover.

The out of sync installation of the timing belt could have caused the catalytic converter to malfunction instead.
