If I hollow out my catalitac converters on my 2006 dakota besides smog failure will it affect the power engine puts out?


That will give it better power and gas mileage but it might make the engine light come on with oxygen sensor codes plus run heavier

Gas Mileage


First thing you need to do is have the computer scanned for trouble codes.
When the check engine light is on, the computer is bypassing a component which can affect fuel mileage and performance.

I have a 1998 buick regal it has been recently tuned up was getting very good gas mileage and runnin well now it is burning more gasoline...no change in performance and no engine light codes


Good gas mileage on this car should be 19City 27Hwy. Gas mileage can be affected by many things. Assuming that the car has been recently tuned as you have indicated, I would: Check tire pressure first<-you'd be surprised what low tire pressure can do. Check for low oil level <-engine friction Cheap spark plugs. Let me know.

Do not dissable it. You EGR may be dirty with carbon build up. Remove the EGR vavle and clean it up real good, and make sure the ports are cleaned up that the EGR bolts too. Then see it if goes away.

Installing new catlyic conforter is it hard? and would a old one reduce gas milage


Well, it all depends on what you think is "hard". Catalytic Coverters on Ford Explorers are no walk in the park - even for a seasoned technician.

Yes, an old converter that is clogged up can wreak havoc with your fuel mileage. However, if there is a problem with your converter that will affect fuel mileage, your Check Engine light will be yelling at you.

If your Check Engine light is not coming on, the best investment you can make for improving fuel mileage on a Ford Explorer is a tire pressure gauge.

Buick regal 92 3.8L Horrible fuel mileage


Sounds like you might have an oxygen sensor problem. Your catalytic converter(s) maybe defective or dirty. That in turn can dirty up the oxygen sensor. A defective oxygen sensor will send faulty info to the computer, interpreting the fumes as cold (even when the engine warms up). That causes the computer to adjust the fuel mixture to very rich, giving you poor gas mileage and the fuel smell. Hope it helps.

Does the fuel filter affect gas mileage


there are lots of things that can affect gas mileage. if the spark plugs and wires are worn out, the air filter being dirty, dirty fuel filter, proper inflation of the tires, O2 sensors that are contaminated and performing poorly. the first thing to do would be that the engine is in good working order, as in no check engine light, no misfire, etc. a poorly running engine will put out terrible gas mileage. then you can start with the things i listed.

I have a 2004 Jeep GC. Check Enigine lights stays on!!!!!!!!!!!!!


What code are getting after all those new parts?
and what engine do you have,do you know what the original code was,because one code can do a domino affect to other sensors,it doesn't make them all bad.
your problems could be a lot of things ,faulty crank and cam sensors,egr valve leaking vacume,or intake leak of vacume.playing hit or miss with parts is really expensive.

I have a Honda Accord 2003, how can i fix a downstraem Oxygen sensor.. does this affect the gas cosumtion performance.. how can i fix this.. Help.!


o2 sensor is very important part to the engine when it come to the fuel economy. o2 sensor send information to the computer (ECU) which compute and calculate ratio of burnt exhaust gases. if the engine is not run properly either is too lean or too rich the o2 sensor will detect it as the car will triger the check engine light. you can drive the vehicle which will not hurt it as long you can tolerated the light however the car will get terrible gas mileage and poor performance as the ECU will try to lean the engine out itself. o2 sensor is fairly cheap to replace and fix. Let assume the car get 30 mpg on the high way, running with check engine light/bad o2 sensor will change the gas mileage to 18-25 mpg. If the car is V6 make sure you replace o2 on both side. good luck!

2001 kia sephia check engine light on ODM system MIL command status fail diagnostic trouble code present P0422


We had our check engine light come on and stay on. We took it to our mechanic who has a machine that reads codes. You need to find out what the problem is relating to the diagnostic code and then you can find out what kind of repairs you are looking at. Our code turned out to be an O2 sensor that he said would do no harm to the car at all other than slightly affect our gas mileage. If the check engine light comes on and flashes on and off you need to go directly to a mechanic as this is a more serious problem.
