Question about 1989 Toyota Tercel Liftback
Ebrake is not on. This happened while the car was being warmed up, car will not stay running when cold, sometimes has very little power when you put your foot on the gas. Only has 106,000km and has run on supreme most of it's life. A friend has said it may be the cat.
I think maybe that you have a plugged catylitic converter. When cats get plugged they get hot, very hot. If there is anything onit ie. dirt, road oil, anything at all, it will burn it off. The best thing I can suggest is loosen the bolts upstream of the cat and remove the dougnut gasket. replace the bolts and drive the car. if it runs better then replace the cat. It will be loud, but we just want to look at power and idle.
