Get an estimate from a local exhaust repair shop for a universal converter replacement, it will be $1000's less.

1999 olds bravada misfires a couple of times before starting


Hello Angela Hylton,

I always go for the fire, fuel & air first... but it starts... so
that's a really great indication... Could just need some fresh spark plugs... (ACDELCO R44LTS6) or a cold start valve ...

(get your OBD codes read FREE (See below).

~~ 4.3L V6 Plugged EXHAUST:

I've never found an elegant way to prove it...
So we'll just jump right into...

GET some liquid wrench Penetrating Oil and
soak the EXHAUST to CATALYTIC converter bolts
really well (couple of times).

If YOU OPEN the exhaust and the engine runs smooth...
you have found a PROBEM that will do both thing you are experiencing...

Now you have to figure if it is the CAT collapsing or a
MUFFLER BAFFLE blocking the out-flow.

(It's
happened to me twice... but I'm pretty old)
((
one converter & one muffler))

FREE... (
to get you in the door)

Might be easier just to take it to a muffler shop...
and
have them run your engine codes...

If you live in CALIFORNIA... we have DIFFERENT
parts, costs & requirements (of course).

((
Somebody's BROTHER-IN-LAW is getting rich)).

But look up your prices on line... FIRST.
(know your prices BEFORE going in).

Hope this helps!!

Suspect problemgs 300 2003 replaced plugs as one cracked 2 oxygen sensors petrol filter in tank misses under load no power maybe damaged catalytic converter diagnostic test shows electrics okay


If you have a reputable muffler and exhaust shop in your area they should be able to perform a flow test on your exhaust to see if your catalytic converters are plugged up or not. They simply drill a small hole in the pipe before and after the catalytic converter and insert a probe that measures the amount of exhaust pressure. They weld the hole up when done and the shop I have here local does this test for free.

Depollution system faulty the engine is dead car want go


Is there any fault indication on the dash where the radio display is.
Anti pollution is basically citroens way of saying emissions system so it could be as simple as a loose emissions pipe but from what you say and the car does not run it could be your catalytic converter (part of the exhaust system) has failed causing the engine management system to cut in and protect the engine.
If there is no fault apart from anti pollution showing in the radio display find someone with a diagnostic machine to give you a better idea of the fault. Hope this helps a bit.

Dakota p0171 p0174 taurus


code p0171 refers to system to lean bank 1==causes intake /exhaust leak--AIR system--MAP/MAF sensor--fuel pressure/pump--injectors--HO2s Have a fuel pressure test done on the fuel manifold to check for blocked filter/faulty pump/fuel pressure regulator faults
code p0174 refers to system to lean bank 2 --same causes including hose connection/s
code p0420 refers to catalytic converter system -bank 1 efficiency below threshold==causes catalytic converter--wiring--HO23. Check the cat converter is not cracked inside and the oxygen sensor is working.

Check engine light on 2004 Sedona. Codes reat catalytic converter, exhaust, etc. Car has only 65,000 miles on. Just passed inspection less than 24 hrs prior to light coming on. Can this be anything...


I would suggest checking with dealer as most KIAs have a 100,000 mile warranty and catalytic converter as part of the emissions equipment should be covered.

3.8L Major Hesitation


the 2001-2002 3.8L V6 Naturaly Asperated (RPO L36 - Vin K) engines experience a problem when the front endcone insulation from the catalytic converter breaks away and blocks the front of the first catalyst brick preventing free flow of exhaust gas through the converter. GM has issued a special policy adjustment extending the warrenty of the catalytic converter for 10 yrs or 120,000 miles regardless of ownership. a dealer will replace it at no cost! take it in. i just did and my car runs like new!
