Default Re: What to do about bad or clogged cat

changed passenger plugs just now...did nothing. Off to get a new battery, DPFE, EGR Solenoid and im gunna get some MAF cleaner and clean the EGR as well when i get back with the parts. If none of this fixes it, ill take out the o2 sensor and see whats good with that

Although the DPFE replace and cleaning the MAF and EGR + sparkplugs did seem to improve the idle and start up, it did not fix any problem as far as power. THe new battery has the bitch starting right up and lets me play my radio for more than 2 minutes without worring if it will start or not too, which is sweet but i still have this power problem. I took out the o2 sensor, and it sounds like absolute shit, but it solved the issue. Im going to try to take off the cat now and ream it out with a broom stick. Hopefully it wont sound too terrible but the CAT was my issue as i suspected. Update when i get it busted through.

Yo guys i need help, i cant figure out how to get the cats off. I guess theres that y pipe with 2 converter looking things and it has three bolts on it but they got all kinds of shit crusted on them i cant get any socket on them. Is that what i need to do though and will it just come down after that?
