Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2 Answers

...at first was wondering what sea foam could do to help vehicle stability...then I noticed the catalyst and not good data from catalyst error codes....now I'm confused...the vehicle stability really ain't got nothin' to do with the catalytic converter~....rather than put something into the gasoline, I'd get a tuneup so that it ran perfectly...top 'er off with 93 octane and DRIVE on a long drive until any foul blockers of the catalyst are burned off~ ....still wondering where the VSC is coming from...them codes is for catalyst~

2 out of 2 people think this is helpful.

after your long drive with GOOD gas (seafoams all burned away) and presumably the catalytic converter will be restored~...then clear the codes with a 15 dollar scanner~
