The dummy sensors will help. The problem is where to get them. The WWW is full of references but I have not been able to find a pair for my chevy truck which is a 1999 5.3 with cold air intake, 1 inch intake spacer, JBL Headers, dual exhaust, Granatelli Mass Air Flow Sensor, Dual Flow Masters, JET programmer/ing, 3.42 locking diff. The truck is an extended cab. It will barely spin a tire jumpin out of the hole. At 30mph and well past 100mph, it will leave a late model 318 Dodge Dakota. Please E-mail me if you know of a company that makes dummy exhaust o2 sensors for the vehicle I described.

How do you replace a catalytic converter to straight pipe on a 2002 grandam?

First off, it is illegal to remove the catalytic converter. Secondly the vehicle will not run properly with the converter removed.

How do you find out if your catalytic converter is bad?

your car may have a hard time picking up speed. also if possible crawl under the car and if the front(towards the motor)side of the catalytic converter is warmer than the back, it needs replacing Usually there is a nasty smell like rotten eggs. Disconnect it on the side closest to the engine. If it runs better with the converter off then it is bad. You should replace it. according to the commission on keeping the air clean you are not SUPPOSED to replace the catalytic converter with a length of straight pipe at a fraction of the cost. Even though it could save a broke guy hundreds of dollars depending on his vehicle type you should not perform this action. Even if you're completely broke and will not have a way to work you should definitely not do this. But if by chance you do attempt this remember there is a back pressure line coming off of some catalytic converters. If you had one of these on yours and you attempted to replace it with a straight piece of piping you would need to plug that hole as it comes from the vehicle. Just so you know... not that you would or should do this as it is illegal.

Is there a temporary fix for catalytic converters?

yes cut the cat. and weld an straight pipe same size as the mufler and problem fix The above answer is 100% wrong. First off it is illegal to remove a catalytic converter from any vehicle without installing a new one. Secondly, modern engines today will not run properly with the converter removed. The check engine light will stay on and you will have poor performance and the car will get poor fuel mileage. The only fix for a bad converter is to replace it. Just make 100% sure it is defective and find out why it was destroyed. Otherwise you will just destroy the new one. Also converters are guaranteed for around 80,000 miles on most vehicles.

What is a straight in Texas hold'em?

A straight in hold'em is the same as a straight in any other game: five cards with successive ranks, such as 45678.In Hold'em they are played a bit differently than in other games since to have a straight means the community cards must make a straight possible. And anytime a straight is possible for you it means it is possible for another player as well.For example if you have T9 and the board shows JKQ you have a straight. But so would a player with AT. In this case you would have the inferior straight.
