Question about Cars & Trucks
Bought car with old or stale fuel, drained and changed filter, added seafoam and ran vehicle. After awhile car began to loose power under load like a misfire. Changed plugs, cap, rotor, wires. The shop stated main Cat was plugged (300 deg in 74 out). Removed cat and put on test pipe. Still some lost of power and hesitation at take off and when flooring while driving. Added 6 new Bosch injectors and seals and it increased a little. Is there anything else that could cause this power loss under load (i.e coil)? Oh the oxygen sensor is just tied under car until I replace the cat (would that throw off my mixture enough). What about the 2 pre-cats connected to the exhaust manifold could they be plugged? Maybe they plugged before the main cat did!

I know this post is old, but right on the engine theres a sticker that says use multi-ground plugs only. I read a similar problem like yours and it seemed to turn out that the spark was arcing to ground over the ceramic on the plug. So maybe it could have something to do with the single ground plugs.
