4. Catalytic Converter failure- If a converter fails and the brick is broken, the dust can be drawn back into the engine. A block showing this type of failure, will have bores that look to be sand blasted. Back cylinders go first if caught early. Otherwise there will be no Crosshatch and the engine will need to be replaced.

TSB: File in Section: 06 - Engine Bulletin No.: 00-06-01-026H
Catalytic Converter Failures When catalytic converter failures occur and the inner brick becomes plugged and breaks apart, the catalytic converter material can be sucked back into the engine during valve overlap and transfer throughout the intake manifold and into the cylinder. Any such material transfer can cause heavy wear to piston rings and cylinder walls. Misfires and oil consumption are the byproducts of ingested catalytic converter material into the combustion chamber and cylinder bores
