Catilitic converter red hot now car wont start after its cooled 1996 cavilier

You should never drive a car with a red hot catalytic converter. If the catalytic converter is heater up to the point where it is that hot, it could be a serious fire hazard. Cars which might have a leak in a fuel line could be at a major risk for a fire or explosion if gas fumes come into contact with a catalytic converter in that condition. -----------------------------------------------------------------

My 1991 Jeep Wrangler, 4 cylinder backfires when I get up around 40 or 50 MPH. It starts to loose power first then backfires. I re-gaped the plugs to specs., changed the fuel filter, but it still does it....

could be the cat.but i would look first at the egr valve and the vacume lines that run to and from it,and vacume test it to see if its working correctly.

1995 jeep wrangler 2.5l thinking about buying the 2.5 just wondering what kind of power it has on the freeway don't want a car where i have to go pedal to the metal to get on the freeway

The 2.5L does not have nearly enough power for this vehicle. They are terribly undersized and tend to wear out quickly because they are worked so hard all the time. I have seen a lot of them come through my shop either burning oil badly or with blown rod bearings because of this. I would get one of the six cylinder models, it seems to be much better suited.

95 jeep wrangler splutters, jerks, backfires during acceleration

The ECU controls all of that. When they start to go bad they do very strange things that are hard to diagnose. They run about $300 bucks of you do it yourself. They are simple to do. Shop around because it is an electrical component and many places wont warranty them but some places do if your lucky you can find one. I also would not rule out your timing or distributor. I dont know you or what you have checked but could be the rotor or could be carbon tracking inside the distributor. Even the slightest crack in the cap can mess everthing up.

Replace 1995 jeep wrangler catalytic converter

If it has flanges on both ends, just unbolt it and replace. If it has welded pipes you will need to cut it off and use adapter sleeves and clamps. Really not rocket worst, you may need to remove the hangars on the rear portion of the system to get enough room to install.
