98GMC1500:my catalytic converter is clogged but it won't start Basically I'm trying to see if I have more then one problem Battery is good and I don't think its the altinator It turns over,won't start

If the cat is plugged up, the truck won't start. You can unbolt the cat from the exhaust manifold and see if it starts. Just run a few seconds, as running that way can crack valves if they get hot enough, but running a few seconds won't do it, plus it will be loud as sin. That will allow you to see if that is the issue. An engine can't breathe with a plugged cat and won't start. If the cat is the issue, be sure to correct why it is plugged before spending all that money on a new one. Running rich, burning oil or antifreeze will cause a cat to fail.

1997 hyundai accent loss of power

by removing the cat converter and not fixing the fault you have created more problems for yourself
all you had to do was have the fault codes read to find the problem
running rough and over heating cat indicates flooding from problem injectors or excessive fuel pressure

Check the plugs and see if they have fuel on them if not check the catalytic converter it could be plugged and putting back pressure on the engine and not allowing the fuel into the cylinders. Can you spray fuel into the throttle body and get it to run. If so you may have a fuel pump problem or fuel filter issue. I am betting on the cat. you can pull the o2 sensor ahead of the cat and the engine should run if it is plugged. It will run rough but at least it should start.

Hello. my 2000 4runner v6 has been running rough. when i start it, it runs fine untill it warms up. then it begins to miss. have replaced spark plugs, and battery but didn`t make a difference. diagnostic...

Change your oxygen sensors - they're responsible for feedback that the computer uses to determine the air/fuel mixture. They usually are good for about 60k miles and then start to go downhill. When they get to a point that the computer won't trust them, it ignores them and runs on preprogrammed fuel maps that run excessively rich (too much fuel) to safeguard the engine. You've probably seen a decrease in fuel mileage as well. And the O2 sensors have to be up around 900 degrees before they'll work - the car ignores them until then. That's why you run fine after a cold start but run rough once the car is warmed up.

The O2 sensors you want to change are in the exhaust system between the engine and catalytic converters (the "pre-cat" sensors). There are O2 sensors after the cats as well, but those are used comparatively to determine how well the cats are functioning. The primaries are the ones used for fuel mixture. If it's been this way for a few weeks or so, I'd put new spark plugs in as well - rich fuel conditions can foul them and contribute to the rough running.

I have a 1996 ford crown vick that will not start

Not likly. There are O2 senors typically infront and behind the cat. they send messages to the computer to regulate fuel and air mixtures but even if they go bad your car should still start it may run like **** but it still runs.
