Most likely it's an EGR valve problem. try unhooking egr then drive it, if the problem goes away, you just need to replace the egr valve.

Yes and no. It will smoke more at start up and if you really hammer on it. But just cruising down the highway no.

If the underlying cause of the light is taken care of the OBD check engine light will go off after 6 warm up/driving cyclec or one within 50 miles of highway driving at a steady speed. If its still on you still have the problem/malfunction.

Many reasons.... One, some catalytic conv have porcelain inside that brakes in pieces and makes malfunction such is block it. Two, some others have fiber glass which "melts" and once again...blocked. and another reason i can give you is the driving habits you may have sometimes driving slow is not the best for your car, take it out to ride on highway once in a while, gets rid of the "soot" inside, specially if you don't use premium gas. hope i helped....ABGDA

A healthy catalytic converter will be hotter out the back outlet than the front inlet after a good highway run. Average temp should be aprox 450 degrees at the front inlet to 700 degrees out the rear.

Most likely you will gain horse power, not loose it. There for gas mileage going up. ACE You will also violate most if not all State and Federal emissions laws. The catalytic converter is not an option on cars, it's put there by the gov't. The only way you can remove it legally is if you are not operating it on a US highway.

AnswerFuel Pump?Fuel Filter?Catalytic converter?Air filter?While all of the above will affect the engine speed performance, the sputtering or popping you are experiencing is caused by the oxygen sensor. It can cause this problem without causing a check engine light to come on.

It depends on the driver's braking habits and type of driving, be it city or highway driving. They can last between 25K or less of city driving to 75K or more of highway driving.

It is driving exclusively on the highway at a set speed with no stop and go traffic.

Could be several possibilities. One of which could be a restricted exhaust due to a damaged catalytic converter. The year, make, model and engine info would help.

when you are driving down a highway the grassy or concrete part is the median.

It depends on the kind of driving and the environment you are driving in. If you are going to be doing strictly city driving or strictly highway driving or a combination. Different vehicles will have different mpg in town and on highway driving situations.

The gas mileage for the 2009 Toyota Tundra depends on whether you are driving in the city or on the highway. In city driving will get you 15mpg while Highway driving will get you 19mpg.

Well, sometimes it is dangerous say for example, you are on a highway and you have a child in the car. But if you are on a country road and no one is there then it's OK. Sometimes there is a state law where you can or cannot be on the phone in a car.

City driving or towing, off. Highway driving, on.

City driving tends to be stop and go, with many traffic lights, other vehicles and pedestrians. Driving on the highway is, usually, more straight forward, with less stops unless there is an accident, or a traffic jam.

damaged catalytic converter can cause misfires. Indeed it could, but I would also check and/or replace the coil packs as needed.

The Highway Code is the UK standard for best practice when it comes to driving. It outlines all of the laws and guidelines for driving on the public highway. Breaking any rule in the Highway Code (whether a law or just a guideline) can lead to being charged with the criminal offence of driving without due care and attention. The multiple choice section of the theory test will test you on your knowledge of the Highway Code.
