Replaceing leaking torque converter , at acces hole , without pulling engine, is it possible?

not possible as there are extensions from the transmission that go into the center of the torque converter
the transmission has to be removed first and if the book says remove engine and transmission as a unit first , then that is the way to do it

You can not diagnose what?

You have Preventative Maintenance that may
need to be done & should have a log book you
can check

You can look at scan tool data & road test

You can component test to find problems

You do not need a check light or codes to
have problems

How about the exhaust converter-consider that when your
doing your testing

My camshaft sensor light is on. and how u know when u need to change catalyic converter

nice anon double post.
so there is no camshaft sensor light on,! (typo?)
why not post a photo of that so we can all laugh.
my guess is its a typo, you meant my check engine light is on.
that? RUNNING? and does it run, ok, (other shoe drops)

yes, that means to scan the pCM
the CAT is bad if the PCM tells you its bad. (p042x) means its bad.
(the smog station will fail it for that. or CEL on running)

or if the engine wont start and CAT melted closed, and the back pressure to it is over 2psi. (easy test)
or the vacuum test fails, cranking or idling if it starts at all.
if the vacuum is near zero cranking ,ONE cause is melted cat.
easy tests all, but is guessing....(BAD THAT)
why not post The full symptoms, not just easter egg hunts...and such.
AND NOT post anon, so we can see you do many posts and form full ideas of all problems posted, (continuity of facts)

WJ 03 jeep
what light , again, here is your cluster, what lamp again?????
that lamp is CEL, not Cam. (apples and oranges diffr)
(aka, MIL & SES) See icon is engine shaped?

24779117-3nbgxbjf1gfdcgdbrzqtqovq-5-0.jpg or did you scan the PCM (good idea for sure)
did you get P03xx errors (called DTC's) and the book says
please say what object showed you CAM?
we cant guess that. say it please.....

Getting a PO422 code on my 1999 hyundai elantra the code says main catalyst sufficiency below threshold on bank # 1 and the check engine light is on.

i think it means that the catalyst converter needs either cleaning or replacing because it's not working properly because it's either blocked up or damaged. not sure which side is bank one though. the check engine light may come on for many reasons. first of all check oil level and condition of oil if it's alright the easiest thing to do is check the book that came with the car and see exactly what reasons the engine light comes on for.

All fluid levels are full, all guages good, engine light stays on

The check engine light is on because the computer has detected a fault in the system.It could be a sensor,wiring or bad connection.You have to get the codes read to find out what could be causing the problem.Most parts stores will do this for no fee at all.Hope this helps.Good luck.

2001 chevy cavalier check engine light came on. went to autozone and they said it was an 02 sensor or the catalytic converter. is this something a novice mechanic can fix or should i leave this to a...

If it was P0420 it is most likely a failing converter.It is better to let a mechanic tackle this unless you are good with a torch to replace the converter.just remember that your cat. converter has a 80,000 mile warrenty with GM so you may be able to get it replaced for free.

My service engine light

Is the "Service Engine" light, or the "Change Engine Oil" light? Do you have the service books, or owners books, that came with the car? I had the same problem with the "Change Engine Oil" light. The fix was in the book. If you don't have it, email me at [email protected], and I can tell you how to fix it.
