As soon as the tank is used up the problem is done with. If after the gas is used up you still have problems it is doubtful you have bad gas.

I have a 2002 Dodge Stratus 3.0, when accelerating the engine chugs and engine light flashes. I heard it's a bad catalytic converter, is this true?

A plugged converter will cause a NO power situation where the vehicle is unable to expell exhaust gasses and cause poor acceleration. A flashing engine light is the result of a misfire. ( spark plug/coil/injector/wiring ). The engine should still be able to accelerate but will have a noticeable hesitation while doing so

Could the wrong engine computer, bad injectors or a bad catalytic converter cause my engine to misfire and the exhaust to turn red hot right behind the catalytic converter???

Red hot is the best clue. I suspect a bad converter. Try disconnecting the converter and run to test. Look inside the converter to see if it is clogged with melted stuff or carbon. Bad gas in tank? How could it possibly run well if this is true? Clean tank and use fresh fuel.

Code says all 4 o2 sensors bad.

The Oxygen sensor is bad and your car is telling you this. The sensor measures the amoung of Oxygen in the burned gasses. Replace it for about $125.00 or have it done for around $150 - $200.

Warning, if you don't have experience and the special tool, you will probably break the first one ... doubbling the cost of parts.

Thanks for your interest in
