Where is the catalytic converter located in a 94 chevy corsica?

From the engine, you have manifolds coming out the side of the engine. It will probably look a little rusty. The manifold is the first part of the exhaust system. After the manifold, you will have pipe running below the car. the pipe is bolted to the manifold. After the pipe there will be a larger portion of the exhaust. Kind of an oval shape pipe. Probably roughly 12" long. The catalytic converter gets VERY hot, so let the car cool completely before touching.

Trying to locate fuel pump relay location on the fuse panel under the passenger side dash. I changed the fuel pump and the truck is still running rough. I changed the fuel filter as well. The roughness is...

your problem is not the fuel pump relay, a relay is just a switch it is either on or off so if the pump is working then the relay is working, i can look up the location for you but i need to know the year, make & model. i think your running problem is more likely a bad spark plug or spark plug wire or ignation coil, again if you give me the year , make, model, engine size i can look up some specific test for you car. also check for trouble codes and let me know what they are and i will look them up as well.

Ok my 90 olds calais has an issue.i had a loss of power and then the catalytic converter clogged up. i hacked the converter off but the car still runs really rough and doesnt have much power and i can...

You need to put back converter. The car needs it for its resistans. No converter makes presure go down in the detonation chambers.So due the loss of power, engine consumption is increased, to compensate that. Some cars wont ewen start without catalitic converter.

I have a 96 Honda Civic HX. When I am at idle the car starts to shake and the rpms fall almost to zero. I took the car to a mechanic and was told that I need a new Catalytic Converter and the EGR ports...

Yes and No. The EGR can cause the car to idle rough and or stall. I am assumeing the check engine light was on and set code for EGR and Catalytic Converter. If the engine isn't running right it is possible the cat won't work right due to improper air fuel ratio that the EGR is causing. To do repair proper the EGR should be fixed then clear codes and see if the code for Catalytic Converter. There are other reasons that would your car to idle rough or stall I am just assuming that this mechanic got codes or tested the EGR right.

I have a Pontiac Vibe 2003 P0420 error code. What

Basically, your on board computer is telling you your catalytic converter is not working properly. As you know, you have a sensor in front and in back of the converter. The computer compares the waveforms from each sensor. If the sensor waveform before and after the cat are the same, then the cat is not working. You should have an analysis of the waveforms at each sensor analyzed at a shop and, if they are the same, the dealer should replace the cat if it is still under warranty. Most common would be the O2 sensor after the Catalytic converter has failed and will need to be replaced. It takes about 15 min to replace and any muffler shop can replace the O2 sensor for you.

Good luck

I need to change o2 sensor where is it located

Figuring that you have the 4.0 you have four o2 sensors. two up stream and two downstream. To know which one you need you really should hook up to a scanner and watch the information flow from each of them B1S1 and B1S2 will have an inverse proportion of voltage. That is to say if S1 is at .9mv, then S2 will be around .01 and visavera as it moves up and down in value. The same thing foes for bank two. The Si is located between the exhaust outlet of the engine and the catalytic converter. S2 is located after the last cat. converter. Many Fords have four cats.

Note; what the parts stores won't tell you is that you may have an O2 code not because you have a bad 02 sensor, but because the 02 sensor is sensing improper ratio's between the two sensors. This can be because the vehicle is running too rich, too lean or the cat. converters are not doing their job.

Hope this helps.
