started running really bad ive cleaned the throttle
body and it blow out alot of smoke and ran a little
better but still not as well as it should i noticed the
catalytic converter is getting really hot. Also when i
put the pipe extension on it its blowing alot of
pressure pls help

1 Answer


Exhaust get very hot. If its blowing black smoke then its running rich which will cause the cat to get even hotter go out faster. May be worth a inspection. Find out why its running rich, check all plugs & plug wires ect.
