Will removing a cat converter from a 1995 GMC Jimmy hurt the vehicle if you drive with out it?
it will not hurt your vehicle but it is illegal, and if vehicle is due for emissions inspection it will not pass.
That depends on the type of vehical, front wheel drive or rear wheel drive. Rear wheel drive vehical: Removing the transmission is the best way to go. there is less to un-hook from the trans then the motor. Also during reassembly the torque converter has to be placed on the trans and turned twice, you will feel it click into place (go on further) it must be seated before reassembly. Front wheel drive: Sorry i…
Your car acts like it is missing and has no power when in drive could it be the catalytic converter?
Depends on what is wrong. Hole in the muffler or converter then NO, do not drive this vehicle as there is a danger of carbon monoxide entering the cabin and causing you to go to sleep and have an accident. It has no smell, or taste so you will not know it is present. Clogged converter is also a no, no. This will cause engine damage. Bottom line is get it repaired whatever the problem.
You can remove it and put a pipe there, or you can remove the exhaust pipe and drive a piece of pipe through it if it's clogged up, but beware of the EPA laws. The check engine light will stay on if you remove the converter and the vehicle will not run correctly. It is illegal to remove a catalytic converter.
