I do not see it being a Converter problem. It sounds more like one of the engine management systems is not working. It can also be a Vacuum leak throwing off everything.

Alot depends on whether the "check engine" light has been set. You can get a free scan from Autozone or Oreillys to name a few places. You can also try using a water spray bottle while the engine is running.and spray around the Intake manifold gasket and any Vacuum fitting you see.

If there is a Vacuum leak the engine will lose RPM or die when you spray the spot that is leaking. If it has been awhile since you replaced a fuel filter it may be restricting the gas enough that you are getting heat-related Vapor lock since you need to wait before restarting the vehicle.

The scan would be the best idea to start with.

2005 DODGE CARAVAN STALLS OUT AFTER YOU FILL IT UP WITH GAS


When filling the tank, stop filling when the pump clicks off. It sounds like you are overfilling the tank getting gas onto the built in evaporator.

Just stop filing when pump clicks off.

2005 Toyota Camry 4 cylinder intermittently won't start


try starting the car and while running disconnect the negative battery cable,if the car still runs turn on the head lights,if the car dies the alternator is weak. I think its weak and can charge the battery as long as the lights are off,but cant keep up when theyare on. so if drive most of the time in the day time you are ok as long as you dont have to start the car too many times. when you drive with the lights on and the engine slows to an idle like when you park the car dies. make sense?

1997 Carolla- engine dies when shift to reverse or drive, starts again when put in park. Is this a transmission problem or starter/ignition problem?


There is a switch that only only allows you to start the engine in Park or Neutral. It sounds as if yours is faulty or has a bad connection. Finding it will be the problem.
