Replaced Fuel filter, Plugs and wires, PCV valve and the Throttle air control valve. Still running rough. Could it be an 02 senor or the catalytic Converter? Car wants to dye out when coming to a stop or while decelerating. But not all the time..... ??? Seems like it's starving for fuel.

I went into a passing gear at high RPMs and the car stalled, pulled over turned it off and cranked it up fine. But noticed high RPMS but not much speed building. Took it home and checked a few things. Apparently the catalytic converter was stopped up and blew the intake manifold gasket. Rodded the catalytic converter out and replaced the intake manifold gasket. But it's still has high RPMs and low speed building, and shuts off when at complete stop like RPMS are getting too low.

I have a 2003 Mitsubishi Lancer ES w 110k miles. Recently it has been vibrating severely (almost to the point that the rearview mirror shakes) while i'm accelerating. My car struggles up inclines and sometimes hesitates out of a full stop. My mechanic found a hole in the flexible pipe and I had it replaced. No dice. I tend to think that it may be the catalytic converter, but I haven't gotten that rotten egg smell. How can I be sure that the catalytic converter is the problem before blowing some

A rattling from what sounds like the catalytic converter. It only happens as you slow down to a stop and then again when you accelerate from a stop. sounds like a part sliding back and forth on a bolt, but everything is tight?

2001 Taurus started chugging & wanted to stall while waiting at a stop light. Car did not have good power so we parked it. It popped no codes. Now the only way to keep it running is to constantly pedal the accelerator. We changed the coil pack & Idle sensor, same problem. When we slowly press the accelerator it will have power and will drive, difficulty is stop signs, lights and traffic. Difficult to get it started, must pedal the accelerator. Was told it is possible the catalytic converter may

I have the same problem with my 2005 Mazda MPV as the unresolved problems showing: It keeps stalling and no check engine light comes on. Upon start-up, it idles low and at stop signs and red lights, it dies. I was told by the dealer after 3 days of trouble-shooting that the catalytic converter needs replacing, but upon further research online, I'm finding out this very possibly isn't true. The PVC (or PCV?) valve and hose were replaced, which did nothing to stop the problem.

Replace the fuel pump its faulty giving you low fuel pressure. ... 1995 Toyota Tacoma
My altima turns over but doesn't start. It gets fuel pressure (though it seems like weak pressure to me, I can stop it with my finger over the line) I put a spare plug I had lying around on the wire, grounded it against the engine and got spark. i replaced my plugs thinking they might be bad. the only code it throws is that the catalytic converter is partly clogged, but even so it should start, even if it would stall and it went from running fine to not running at all one day to the next.
