Could be your cat is stopped up....


Ya I was kinda thinkin something like that I have a few exhaust leaks couple feet below header rite before the cat was thinkin that the exhaust leak and maybe the o2 has a something to do with?? What you think?


Yeah it sounds like you need to do some exhaust work

Best Answer

I sure hope that's what it is, I'm pulling my hair out trying to get thing to run a little better! I never knew exhaust leaks could make a car run like that that's why at first I didn't even think It had nothing to do with the exhaust but I have a buddy that told me that the leaks could do that and then u said it could be the cat so I think that's my next task and I hope it works! Thanks
