Your converter has broke down inside this will effect gas millage and could clog up the exhaust and kill your performance.

My 98 Jeep Grand Cherokee loses power going it uphill and when I accelorate it sputters and slows down.


it sounds like you may have a clogged catylic convertor in your exhaust system. after the car has run for a while look at the convertor under the car sometimes they will get red from the heat. or even the exhaust manifold could be red. this just happened to my suv. to confirm that it was my convertors I drilled a 3/8 in hole in the exhaust before the convertors. then I test drove the car going up a steep hill and the car ran fine no more lack of power and the engine ran smooth. if this is not the problem and you drilled a hole in the exhaust pipe then just go to a muffler shop and they will weld the hole closed for a few dollars. good luck

Chevrolet Cavalier 2004 quits running while driving down the highway.


need to check fuel pressure, not just listen for pump to run, also check reading on coolant temp sensor, but sounds like fuel pump /filter issue. just because you hear pump run doesnt mean its putting our right amount of pressure. also check for plugged catylic convertor

1997 ford expo makes loud clasking noise


If it was your cranshaft making that kind of noise.your motor would have frozen up already.it seems more like a tranny problem than an engine problem. Take it to a good mechanic. It sounds like your tranny is about to go.

Rattling noise when applying gas,sometimes when idling in park.Maybe muffler/drivetrain vibrations No noise cruising


You just might not hear the noise when it is at speed or the engine vibrations are not at the right frequency to cause the resonance.
I'd check the heat shield around the catalytic convertor; they are notorious for doing this and we have one rattling currently too!
