p1130,p1131,p1132,p0402


p 0402 is EGR valve and solenoid problems
that sort of back pressure indicates cat converter is blocking the exhaust system
the rest are o2 and Ho2 sensor problems probably from the faulty cat
one side would be oxygen sensor trying to adjust mixture but unable from cat
fix the cat converter/s and then get a fault code reading
next post include make , model and year and engine type

power steering belt removal


You need to loosen the large mounting bolt at the base of the power steering pump as well as the tension adjusting bolt on top of the unit that is attached to the slotted arm. You may need to use of a large pry bar to gently force the pump inwards to gain enough slack to remove the belt.

how to replace/remove both catalytic converters


Below are the steps needed to remove the catalytic converters. You may be able to first remove the band clamp from between the converter and the exhaust manifold, then loosen the rest of the system and to get enough clearance to slide the converter towards the front of the vehicle but you will need to first remove the clamp that holds the converter to the rest of the exhaust. Hope this helps
_______________________
Both Catalytic Convertors

First you need to raise the vehicle.

Next, you need to pry the insulators from the support brackets and support the muffler and tailpipe with jackstands.

Then, loosen the the catalytic converter down pipe-to-front resonator clamps and separate the front resonator from the converter down-pipes. Carefully lay the free laying exhaust on the ground.

Right Catalytic Converter

Then, remove the down-pipe-to-transaxle bracket nut, loosen the clamp and separate the extension pipe from the converter.

Next lower the vehicle and remove the air filter and intake ducts. Disconnect the wiring harness for the O2 sensor and the remove the sensor.

Finally loosen the band clamp at the exhaust manifold and remove the converter from the engine compartment. You may need to replace these clamps after removal because you need to pry it apart and they will leak when you reinstall.

replace a catalytic converter for a 1999 dodge stratus


The cat is located just off of the exhaust manifold. You have to remove things to get out of the way. Loosen down pipe to converter and unclamp the converter and it should pull right out. Use a good penetrating oil to help loosen the down pipe bolts.
