Only if your cat is plugged.
many time you can put your car in park and listen at the tail pipe and have someone rev the engine way up. if its plugged (it wont be completely plug or it wouldnt run at all) you will hear the air rushing in the exhaust. you will see what i mean .

My Dodge Stratus (1998 4 cyl) check Engine light is on. The error code says oxygen sensors were bad. Both oxygen sensors have been replaced. After resetting the check Eng light. The oxygen sensor


the upper 02 sensor is for air fuel mix while the secondary 02 sensor is for the operation and status of the catalitic converter are you sure the catalitic converter is not plugged. Could be if you have had a loss of power

Does not accelerate


I would start by checking the transmission fluid, and even would recommend replacing it. Hopefully a new fluid and filter change will do justice to the problem. If you notice a burnt smell or dark brown colored oil on the transmission dipstick then its obviously time for a change. Lets hope that its enough to fix the problem, if not, a new transmission/rebuild may be in the near future for you.

You need a catalytic conveyer. Before you buy one contact your local dealer. These are covered under the federal emissions warranty for at least 8 years or 80,000 miles. The upstream O2 sensor has nothing to do with monitoring the cat. The downstream O2 sensor is the sensor that monitors the cat. The MAF sensor would set lean codes if it where bad or dirty and you would have noticed a lack of power under acceleration if it where really bad. The gas cap has nothing to tpdo with tailpipe emissions so I'm not sure why that was replaced. I guess what I am getting at is you could have put all the money you a lady spent towards a cat and the problem would have been solved. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

Car starts but has lack of power, skips and shut off


There are several things that can cause this. I would start with the catalitic converter and air filter. You can remove the air filter and see if it helps. The converter will get really hot and sometimes start to glow when bad. One way to check, is to pull the 02 sensor out before the converter. if it runs good replace the converter. Let me know

My toyota NZE 2001 model takes long to pick acceleration and sometimes fails to go up hill what could be the problem


Lack of power can be several things. one to look at would be the catalitic converter. it clogs up and your engine can't breath. also on the other end check your air filter. again can't breath

My car stalled once i accelerated over 40mph and won't start again. Battery is fine. Fuel pump?


This car being a 1985 this could be your catalitic converter. the car will not be able to expell the exhaust so it bogs your engine down. basically your engine can't breathe you can either have it checked by thermometer before and after the converter and see if it is very hot before and moderately hot after. this car may have 2 converters on it. if so it is usually the first one. hope this helps

My car is jerky at lower RPMs when i try to accelerate (but used to be fine at these RPMs). If I am going accelerate around 2000 RPM then the car will really start to lug. It is fine once it gets up to...

hi there, it could be several different things try these -check the idol air control valve first. try taking off with a\c going and with the a\c off and see if there a differance, if there is, i'd definatly have it checked or replaced. another idea is have the catalitic converter checked, if its clogged you would have bad acceleration,wont idol right, you can check yourself with a vaccum gauge, just connect it to the service port or where the pcv valve connects to the intake and crank up the car and watch the gauge, when you accelerate the vaccum will decrease and let off the accelerator, then watch the guage if it comes back to vaccum very quickly your catalitic converter is good, and if comes back slowly than you have a problem, its clogged
