Question about 2004 Chevrolet Cavalier
Running extremely lean. Did you replace the 02 sensors? They detect lean and rich conditions and if the previous problem was too rich, the 02 sensors may have set ecu to run lean because of their problem. Now converters are free flowing and the settings should have again adjusted itself if the 02 sensors haven't flaked out. Overheating is and a fire hazard.destrucive to a converter and as hot as you say they are getting is not good. Do this, in the intake ducting is a sensor call a maf sensor. It's in a metal section. See how dirty it is. Then buy a spray can of CRCelectrical cleaner and spray wash the sensor thoroughly. Do not touch, rub, or brush the sensors, Just rinse dirt away with spray. The sensor is delicate, sensitive and very expensive to replace. DO NOT USE COMPRESSED AIR! The spray will dry quickly. Good Luck and make sure you have a clean air filter. Let me know if you will please.Ned
