Sounds like something in fuel system is clogged form running to low on fuel if vehicle is old and fuel filter has not been replaced for a long time.
It does not take much but a small particle to clog injector or it could be fuel pump is going out. You need to check fuel pressure and change filter and also you might have to get fuel system flushed and you might just have replace injector at worst. Hope this helps

This code is a catalyst efficiency code. The catalytic converter is most likely the problem, but it could still be caused by a defective oxygen sensor. The easiest way I know to check for this code is with a scan tool that is capable of reading live data stream. You need to look at the upstream and downstream oxygen sensors, and see if they are mirroring each other. In other words, if the upstream (the one before the catalytic converter) is reading .700, and the downstream ( the one behind the catalytic converter) is reading .700, or anywhere near that, then you have a problem. The numbers are just examples. The upstream should constantly swith from high to low voltage. If the downstream is identical, or even remotely close to having the same reading as the upstream, then you most likely have a defective catalytic converter. This does correspond to what happened a couple of weeks back. A misfire will take out a catalytic converter if not repaired quickly. Also, if you had a converter that was marginal, and was close to failure, then that misfire may have been just what it needed to fail.

SOURCE: No spark from coil pack

The most common reasons for them going out are not using dielectric grease properly when installing, and from washing your engine.

I believe this was a huge issue with Volkswagen vehicles

Check the vacuum line on the fuel pressure regulator for any sign of gas being sucked into the line. A failed regulator will let extra gas get into the engine. If it's okay, have the fuel pressure checked. That's sure a lot of gas, way too much for the engine. Good luck.

Engine cranks but won't start


If it is an electrical Fuel Pump, you will hear the pump whirring as soon as you turn the key to "ON". If you can't hear it, the fuel pump is bad. If it is a mechanical fuel pump on the engine, remove the hose that goes into the carburator. And crank the engine. It should pump the gas out without a problem. If it does not, the fuel pump is bad. Also check the relay to the fuel pump and the shutoff valve. It is more likely that it is a relay problem since it hits a bump and goes off then it carries a current again. Probably a bad relay under the hood for the fuel system.
