Question about 1995 Toyota Tercel

1 Answer

Exhaust, Catalytic converter

I had both the exhaust and catalytic converter fixed on my 95 Tercel: they did a very poor job and now it seems I need both replaced. How much should I pay for parts and labor to get it fixed? I went to pepboys the first time and got taken. Should I go to a dealer this time?

Hummm...

Most of the parts on toyota's are bolt on and you should be able to accomplish this for yourself. I believe that all you need is a 15 mm, 17mm 19mm and 13mm wrench to remove these items.

I set of ramps wouldn;t hurt either, lol

How di I replace a catalytic convertor


Replacing a catalytic converter ranges from easy to moderate for most DIY mechanics. It is best to take off the entire exhaust system (not the exhaust manifold or headers) for a through inspection when doing this job as a bad catalytic converter is a sign that other parts of the exhaust system may be requiring replacement as well including the muffler(s) and tail pipe(s). Tenneco's Walker Muffler site has detailed schematics for both domestic and foreign cars. TRW Aftermarket may carry them too. (If you own a very expensive car; you plan on keeping for a long time , see about a stainless steel exhaust system... Borla, Remus, Supersprint, Bosal, and ANSA make many for foreign cars.) The other thing(s) to check and remove before taking the exhaust pipes off are the 1 or 2 Oxygen sensors... they will affect your gas mileage significantly. Unplug the wires to them and unscrew the front one and look at it. If it's filthy fouled replace it and the lower (if there are 2) one too... the information from both of them influences the car's ECM/ECU computer to adjust the air/fuel mixture.. (NGK, Beru, and Bosch make oxygen sensors for most cars.) Ensure you buy new exhaust pipe hangers and mounting bolts, if your hangers don't include them. Use Penetrating oil on a COLD exhaust system to help free up the bolts that join the lower part of the exhaust manifold to the first part of the exhaust system. Letting it sit overnight seems to work best. You may need a new gasket there so prepare and buy a new one to replace it. (When replacing, tight is good, too tight is bad as you may break off the stud or bolt.) IMPORTANT!!! Old catalytic converters need to be disposed of as hazardous waste as they contain several gridded wafers of electroplated platinum base metal. (Contact the new catalytic converter seller to see if they will take your old one or contact your city or county disposal office to see how to properly dispose of a used one.) Exhaust pipes typically fail where there are bends as the metal is stretched and thinner there... look for holes and rust. Typically, a ratchet set, rubber mallet and hacksaw may be required to cut a catalytic converter out and then crush the round inner sleeve remaining inside the exhaust pipes ends with a thin flat chisel, pulling it out of the "good" exhaust pipes using locking pliers (a.k.a. Vise Grips tm). (Alternatively, a rubber mallet may be used to strike the catalytic converter to break it loose from the exhaust pipe ends... DO NOT DO THIS if the catalytic converter is in the disintegration stage. Do Not use the mallet on the exhaust pipes as they will bend!) Use crocus cloth or sand paper to smooth the inside of the exhaust pipe connections and ensure by trial off the car that the new catalytic converter goes in the pipe ends easily before mounting the separate pieces on the car... terrible to learn it won't go in, due to carbon soot or rust when you're on your back underneath!

O2 SENSORS LOCATIONS


The O2 sensors are located in the exhaust pipe just off the engine exhaust manifolds and before the Catalytic Converter. A V6 has 2 of them, one for each bank of cylinders, they are referred to as the "Bank 1 and Bank 2 Upstream sensors". There is also a sensor that looks like a O2 sensor it is located behind the Catalytic Converter, its job is to monitor the efficiency of the Catalytic Converter and signal you with a check engine light and a code P0420 if the Cat is not doing its job. Each sensor has its own set of fault codes if problems are sensed in the O2 levels in the exhaust (fuel control problems) and other problems like the heater circuit in the sensor is defective.

I would like to know where the oxigen sensors are located and how many does my 2003 lincoln navigator has?


the oxygen sensors are located in the exhaust pipe. There will be at least three and possible four. The upstream sensors are always located before the catalytic converter and usually close to where the exhaust pipe bolts to the exhaust manifold. The job of these two sensors is to monitor the difference in oxygen values between the outside air and the exhaust to help determine proper air fuel ratios.

If you have a single catalytic converter than there will be one O2 sensor (downstream) located after the catalytic converter. If there are two cats than there could be two O2 sensors behind each cat. The job of these two sensors is to monitor the catalytic converters efficiency.

Where in the engine is the catalytic converter


The catalytic converter is part of the exhaust system and is usually found under the vehicle, and the exhaust will run from the exhaust manifold to a pre-catalytic converter, and then down to the catalytic converter, and then the exhaust will run from the catalytic converter to the exhaust muffler, and then continue out to the end of the tail pipe.
I have provided an image of the catalytic converter to help assist you.

Poor acceleration


Replace the air and fuel filter and have the catalytic converter looked at. It's common for the catalytic converter to go bad and start to restrict the exhaust flow. This is more noticeable when the exhaust system heats up rather then when it's cold, once the cat's heats up. The screen in the housing plugs up causing the restriction, you can go to any muffler shop and have them check the catalytic converter and most places do this free of charge. Good luck

Check to see if the catalytic converter is clogged, a clogged converter will cause poor performance, the engine to overheat and the exhaust to glow red hot. That should FixYa. Find a different mechanic.
