Loss of power

After the car gets hot it seems like it vapor locks and cuts out and dies.....I think it might be the catalatic converter but if i take it off or break out the honey combs will it mess up the 02 sensors

Engine dies at stop lights when air conditioning is in use


Lets use common sense on the Trans Flushing

Old Fluid out --- New Fluid in---WOULD THAT DO ANYTHING
TO CORRECT ANY PROBLEM------NO

Trans & Power Steering Fluids-- are done every 3 years
in my world
They are called Preventative Maintenance,just like spark plugs,
gas & air filters,nothing else,fixes nothing

Trans fluid breaks down over time from heat & then your
clutches burn up & your trans fails,no other reason to change
the fluid

If the Torque Converter Clutch Solenoid is bad & doesn't
release when you apply the brake,then it is like slowing down
with a standard shift car & not putting in the clutch when you
come to a stop

You need to ask more questions & understand what your
told or stay in the conversation & take it into the service bay
& not deal with a service writer who doesn't work on the
product.

My ford 2002 f-150 4x4 just died on me, yesterday. It turns over and seems to be getting gas to the motor. I checked the valve that looks like a valve stem on throttle body and gas pumps out of it.


check catalatic converter. If converter is clogged it will either only run at low idle or not run at all. quickest way to test is to remove egr valve, plug intake port and start truck. if it starts change converter.

Car keeps cutting off while driveing also missng


I have a 1989 Probe LX and I had a problem that felt like vapor lock... it was cutting out and driving real slugish with a huge loss of power. My mechanic played around with it and found way too much exhaust back pressure. He replaced the exhaust pipe from the manifold to the tailpipe and that fixed the problem, which turned out to be the catalytic converter rusting out and it collaped on the inside, blocking off most of the exhaust before it could go out the tailpipe. expensive problem solved, car runs great now!
