put 1995 LeSabre on scanner and now the car chugs barely runs with gas pushed to floor. Was running great before put on scanner.

Asked by Mar 30, 2012 at 07:00 PM about the Buick LeSabre

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Check engine light was on. Was running fine except for overdrive seemed to have died. Put it on a scanner from O'Reily auto parts store and now the car barely runs, manifold and catalytic converter get red hot. Gas pedal to floor and barely moves. What happened? Did the scanner fry out the computer?
Motor rocks back and forth and barely chugs.

if no codes... seems like a collapsed catalytic converter.. if it gets hot and loss of power.
