Would a catalytic converter cause your car not to start?
If the cat was totally blocked, the engine may start and run briefly for a few seconds. If the cat was partially blocked the engine would run but lack serious power.
What would cause a 1997 Jeep Wrangler to clatter when you start it could it be the catalytic converter?
What would cause a1991mercury capri xr2 to stall after it warms up runs for about 10 min and stalls wont start till it sits for a while?
yes a bad catalytic converter can make different problem 1 if is clog is so much restriction the engine don't start or run a few seconds or few minutes and stall if the damage cat is bank 1 and direct fit some pieces reach the [ egr ] valve and can get stuck open and the engine don't start or shakes allot
What would cause a 97 jmc jimmy that start cutting out and dies hard to get started again any ideals?
Maybe but more likely its the other way around. Oil blowby will ruin the converter quickly. Perhaps if the check engine light was on & the engine quickly replaced then the converter would still be good. A clogged cat will just rob performance & the engine might not start. The oxygen sensors abre probably ruined from the oil blowby too.
Why do my 1984 Benz 190e bog down after 15min when you driving and turn it off and start back up run like new until 15min and dose it agin?
It should last the life of the car if you maintain the car as you should. Let the engine start running rich and do nothing to repair this condition and it will destroy the converter. But keep the engine tuned up and running as it should and you will never have to replace the converter. NEVER had a problem with my 1996 HONDA ACCORD engine and CATALYTIC CONVERTER needed to be replaced at 220,000 MILES.
One common problems is a plugged catalytic converter, if the engine starts fine and then starts to stall or feel like it does not have any power after running for a while it could be the catalytic converter.. the engine starts loosing power because the exhaust has nowhere to go (the catalytic converter is partially or totally plugged) Compression starts to go down causing the engine to stall or die. If you leave the car…
If After replacing fuel injectors so you know its getting gas the car still refuses to start could the problem be related to the catalytic converter and if so how would you go about testing it?
A partially blocked catalytic converter might cause the engine to run poor, but it wouldn't keep it from starting. Always go back to the basics. Fuel, ignition and compression. Starting fluid is a good tool to have around when an engine won't start. If the engine runs when starting fluid is being sprayed into the air intake then dies when you stop spraying, you have a fuel delivery problem. If the engine WON'T start when…
If your question is "Does a diesel car have a catalytic converter" then I might be able to help. Some countries require catalytics on diesels, and some US states also require them. Most newer cars and trucks will have them mounted. A diesel engine will actually run better without a catalytic, but having one will cut down on the black soot coming out of the exhaust pipe. California I know for sure will start to…
What would cause the 90 Chevy Beretta to cut off after a say 40 mile hike start back up but wouldn't stay running in drive or reverse. Is there a speed sensor or something simple that would cause this?
when the battery dies. Though, that is a valid answer, there are many reasons for you car to shut down on you, by it self. There is ignition coil, fuel filter, catalytic converter, ignition switch, just to name a few. Give a little more information like, year make and model with engine size to start.
I would start by checking the Catalytic converter. It is likely plugged forcing the exhaust gases back into the motor, fouling out the EGR valve and your oxygen sensor. Another cheaper problem is changing the spark plugs and wires. The plugs being dirty will cause the motor not to fire in that cylinder and the wire being no good won't send the electric pulse to the plug so it can spark. But it not going…
