Question about 1990 Toyota 4Runner
I think i have a bloacked Catalytic convertor, i have a peugeot 406 rapier 2001 estate(1.8) and it accelerates fine but on low revs like when your just cruising at 2000rpm with no acceleration it feels a judder, as if the exhaust pressure aint comming out right, but as soon as i accelerate the engine seems fine.
I've had the same problem with a rover years ago and the guy in the garage said it needed a new cat +back box but he simply put a hole in the back box with a screw driver for a temp fix and the car was fine again! i then replaced both but i am wondering will drilling a small hole in the cat or back box temporarily fix my problem?
Can i do any damage by driving the car around with a cat like this?
I only paid £350 for the car and a new cat will cost me £180 fitted so i'm wondering if i can just put a hole in the back box or cat just to stop any damage for the time being until MOT, any tips?
You will not do any damage to the car driving with a stuffed cat.The exhaust has already left the engine and has left the building.No harm to be done.You said the engine goes fine when you stick the boot into it.Maybe not a blocked cat.Its probably engine tune but a hole in exhaust may get it and you going better:)Have a go mate!Hope this helps
