SOURCE: catalytic converter still glowing red

When running does the engine shake back and forth (indicating a skip in the engine) also does it rev up freely. If you were to rev it up to 3500RPMS would it be smooth without the engine shaking back and forth? Also the o2 sensor on the front of the exhaust manifold is pretty easy to get at, if you were able to pull that( 7/8") wrench I beleive) you could tell if it were running rich (sooty black color). In the end you could take it to a muffler shop and for very little money have them inspect your cat, without any cutting or welding. a $20-$30 cost at most. I know the fixya wants us to be self suficiant but even i don't mess with small exhaust work because of the benieft of not dealing with it, especially for such a small price. But if its something you wanted to do, I could explain so. A shop can visually inspect the cat, and see if it is clogged with oil, or excessive fuel. At any rate in the end if they do find that you do need a cat, don't buy a GM one, there are plenty of other sources for an aftermarket cat. IF you decided to go that route i know of a few sources that one could be had for pretty cheap ($50-70) for new. Let me know if any of this helps

SOURCE: replaced plugs wires coils and still eng. misfire

ok. You mentioned shampoo? meaning you cleaned the engine and compartment. And ran out of gas.
Sometimes if we wash the engine, water can hide in some spots like getting into plugs and such. If so, that plug may have been damaged. change the fuel filter as well, if you have ran out of gas.

if smell rich, well you just may be on the right track. Not enough air. Be sure to check all vacuum hose to ensure you don't have a leak somewhere that we are not catching.

No power at high rpm


I'm guessing but this sounds like air problems. do you have a new air filter? The O2 sensor may be off but not technically bad yet. I'm pretty much stuck on something restricting the air flow.

What is causing my 02 Sub to missfire after driving it turning it off and restarting it ?


Check your fuel pressure. Unspent fuel would cool the converter. A lean fuel situation would create the glowing exhaust.

clean the idler on the intake and also clean the throttle sensor, it would also be best to change the air filter and clean the maf sensor. Idler does more than just idle vehicle it controls low revs, and drop down from reves. throttle sensor tell ecu what air to add to the fuel. and the MAF tells ecu how much air is coming into the intake. also check for broken cracked vacuum lines.

Random multiple misfire code. Cat gets glowing red hot. Sluggish lack of power/acceleration


Combining the hot cat converter and the missfire code, I would lean toward a fuel problem. Too lean or pressure too low.
If it was an ignition problem the cat would usually not be hot.
If the exhaust was stopped up, you would not usually get the multiple missfire issue. Just lack of power.
It could be a leaking EGR or other vac problem, and a dirty fuel filter too.

Car running rough and misfire has various reasons, as you have tried most of them except the EGR valve , Check it out.

The symptoms show you have an faulty EGR valve . Replacing it will cost you around $50.

Used seafoam in oil engine misfiring


determine when it misfires, and isolate cylinders. a poormans method is use an infrared temperature gun (one with high range, 700 degrees or more is preferable) and with engine held at rev(say 2500) point at each exhaust port 1 by 1, misfiring holes have colder exhaust than firing holes.
If the misfire is momentary or intermittant, or caused by defective cam or crank sensors, you should see professional help...those problems require more advanced equipment to get the 1st time, unless you dont mind lobbing expensive parts randomly till you get lucky
