    What is a cataleptic converter an where can I find it in the car?

  • michael spring Aug 05, 2013

    Catalytic converter. Theirs a honeycomb shape interior coated with platinum( catalyst) . It will clog and melt overtime. Sometimes if the convertor is resticted it will glow red but you can only see it in the dark and when the engine is at operating temp.

    I can't send you a photo here but google the catalytic converter and you'll see what it looks like

SOURCE: my 93 jeep grand cherokee runs rough while in idle

BEFORE CHANGING THE INJECTORS, TRY REMOVING THE HOSE THAT LEADS TO THE THROTTLE BODY AND CLEANING THE THROTTLE BODY AND THROTTLE PLATE. USING AN OLD TOOTHBRUSH AND A CAN OF CARB AND CHOKE SPRAY, SCRUB IT, WHILE WIPING OFF THE CARBON WITH A CLEAN CLOTH RAG. THIS SHOULD HELP IT RUN CLEANER AND WITH LESS MISSING. SPRAY A LITTLE CARB AND CHOKE WHILE THE ENGINE IS RUNNING AND KEEPING IT AT ABOUT 2000 RPM'S. HOPE THIS HELPS. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED. THANKS FOR AN HONEST RATING AND FOR USING FIX-YA. GOOD LUCK

Ford Escort - 1997 car does not accelerate up hills. it revs if i am careful on flat up to 50mph but not past that? need to know what it possibly is and how it might cost asap? thanks


Look into exhaust, clogged cat conv. could cause that. Best way to test is a vaccum test on the intake. When exhaust is restricted the vaccum should go to 0 at the intake manifold while accelerating.

I have a 1997 landcruiser,when driveing at 40 to 50mph a vibration appers when accelerating up to 70mph it gets worse take foot of accelerater goin down hill thers is no noise or vibration


Check your universal joints in the drive shaft. When you remove your foot fromt the accelerator you are no longer applying power to the rear wheels and in turn there is no load on the drive shaft. When you accelerate below 40mph, there isn't enough centrifugal force to cause the driveshaft to wobble, but once you go above 40mph, it begins to show slop.

Another thing to check is your wheel bearings.

No power when accelerating hard


Possibly a plugged catylitic converter. This can cause to much back pressure and that will cause the engine to run poorly under acceleration or loaded conditions.
