The seal that runs along the bottom back edge of the hood may be missing- the seal might have been mounted to the firewall. Your fresh air intake for the cabin is on top of the ledge running below the windshield there at the wipers. If the seal is damaged/missing, and any of the fumes created under the hood will find their way into the passenger compartment. Very dangerous. You may have other emission problems that are making the situation worse. I wouldn't drive it until the problem is fixed. In addition to Tim's suggestion, there may be a problem with the vent in the trunk. It should have a flap that allows air out, not in. If there is an exhaust leak in the muffler or the pipe leading to the muffler, engine ehaust may be coming into that vent. This could be a dangerous situation, and should be corrected soon, and you should drive with the windows down on your way to the repair shop.
Check to see if catalytic converter is stopped up,a clogged fuel filter can cause it to go bad .
No, it merely reduces pollution. It does not come into play until the gas has already been burned.
Should you cut off the catalytic converter? No. But can you and will SOME vehicles actually benefit? Yes. It is illegal to remove any emmision control device from your vehicle in most if not all states. For countries such as Mexico where it is not illegal, some vehicles without downstream Oxygen sensors (after the catalytic converter) it can have some benefits. It is really the same benefit as a free flowing exhaust. Modern (97+) cars already have a free flowing design catalytic converter so there is no benefit to doing this.
Catalytic converter. 9 out of 10 times when a car runs fin cool and stalls when warm, this is the problem.
have you replaced the fuel filter yet? a dirty filter will flow less fuel under load causing a loss of power.
There is no reason to do this. Modern catalytic converters do not restrict your exhaust flow. All you will gain by breaking it out is a check engine light coming on that will never go away. If your check engine light is already on for a catalytic converter problem removing the honeycomb will not fix it.
Make sure the bulbs are good.
IS THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT ON? IF SO, DOES IT HAVE CODE 0420? IF THE CATALYTIC CONVERTER IS BLOCKED, THE ENGINE WILL RUN FOR A FEW SECONDS AND STOP BECAUSE THE EXHAUST BUILDS UP TOO MUCH BACK PRESSURE.
take the catalytic converter off. you can punch the guts out of the converter so you have a pipe to got back on the exhaust.
the P1163 code refers to the Primary Oxygen Sensor in your car, which is found before your CAT, or catalytic converter. The code is "Primary HO2S (No. 1) Circuit Slow Response" I have the same code on my 98 Honda civic, but have already replaced the sensor, so i am in quite a situation. My check engine light WILL NOT GO OFF! but i hope i helped you if you havent replaced your oxygen sensor yet
yes, but it is illegal and i do not encourage it becasue your engine light will stay on, but if your converter has already damaged your engine, it is to late and you need to replace the engine. this happens because the pre cat or pieces of it get sucked up into the engine damageing the cylinders
The current version of Total video converter is 3.60 already.
its already out its called Bowmaster 2: Prelude google it
I guess it would depend if the replacement part is a bolt in or a weld in, either way it should take about a half hour to a hour of shop time.
I have just submitted this question and I wanted to let anyone who can answer this to know that I have already replaced the fuel filter, plugs and wires. My next attempt will be the catalyptic converter.
Blown fuse or wiring defect for the bulb you have already replaced. You have replaced the wrong bulb. The new bulb was defective.
Yes you can you can also buy an ecu chipped already ex: get like a p28
You have spent quite a bit of money and still have the problem. Obviously the converter and the O2 sensor did not need replacing. Take the car to a professional who actually knows what they are doing, and stop throwing parts at the problem.You have spent quite a bit of money and still have the problem.

the sensor(s) are going to be located near the catalytic converter. you probably have two...One located before the converter and one located right after the converter. you can use either a 20-22 mil box wrench or a really deep socket...most auto stores carry a specific tool for it. You just unscrew the old one pop in the new one...these sensors usually have some anti-seize on them from the parts store already so no need to add any if you don't already have some laying around somewhere.
Changing a timing belt is not a DIY job for the inexperienced, especially on an interference engine which the Prelude has. Do it incorrectly, and serious engine damage will occur when the engine is started. Take it to a professional for this repair. Also replace the water pump and service the cooling system at the same time. This will save you money on labor down the road, as most of the labor coast of replacing the pump will have already been done when replacing the cam belt. If the pump has already been replaced, then disregard this.
Have vehicle scanned to determine problem Could be plugged catalytic converter
The horse and buggy was replaced by the automobile. Trains already existed before the automobile.
Sorry but, you don't know this one. There are 3 one on each manifold and one on the top of the catalytic converter. There about $200 each at auto store. Find them cheaper online. There are two, one right before the catalytic converter and one right after. The computer compares the two, and adjusts fuel accordingly. The front one runs a little hotter and tends to need replacing more often. However, save yourself the headache and change them both at the same time. Heck, you're already dirty.
Could be several things but one comes to mind, a plugged catyletic (sp?) converter.
Even though you have already replaced the thermostat, there are other issues that can cause your Nissan Maxima to overheat. Your fan may be stuck and not operating as it should.
