  1. Catalytic converter

    Thanks. I guess I’ll just go get some hose clamps and pull it off and have a look
  2. Catalytic converter

    So my cat issue is resolved, but all the cleaner I put in tank must have knocked a lot of other stuff loose because now I’m having other issues. Truck wouldn’t start, wasn’t getting fuel, replace fuel filter at the end of the line closest to engine. Truck starts, everything was good for a few...
  3. Catalytic converter

    Nice! I am now thinking about replacing my whole exhaust system, but like I said before I’m no mechanic. I do have a friend that is willing to help and used to be a mechanic. He was saying if my cat is plugged and I also have exhaust leaks elsewhere( which I do) right after the cat I believe...
  4. Catalytic converter

    i remember what I replaced was on the drivers side frame rail like you said
  5. Catalytic converter

    Same, mine is a 5 speed manual too, it does the same thing in regard to when I rev it up and let go back to idle instead of easing off it dies sometimes. Is this not somehow related to the cat? I replace the fuel filter a couple years back thinking maybe it was clogged with no change. I’ll get a...
  6. Catalytic converter

    Great, haha, any ideas on where I should go from here? Wish I didn’t just pay a guy to fix a bunch of shit I probably didn’t need only for him to not address the real problem until I picked up the truck and it’s still sputtering. Then he tells me what I suspected the whole time.And tells me...
  7. Catalytic converter

    Hmm, forgive me, I would say the engine itself is louder maybe, and the exhaust. I know he did a tune up but I did my own tune up a few years back with the help of a mechanic buddy of mine and that didn’t change the overall loudness. Truck used to go vroom vroom now it goes VROOM VROOM!!! Haha...
  8. Catalytic converter

    Oh damn, I didn’t know that. The mechanic just told me that in my state it’s not a problem but In some states I wouldn’t pass emissions
  9. Catalytic converter

    Damn, not exactly what I wanted to hear but thanks. So before I brought it to the mechanic it would basically not go over 15 mph until it was warmed up for 15 to 20 minutes, then the exhaust would kick something out and it would run fine. After mechanic my engine is a lot louder than it used to...
  10. Catalytic converter

    Thanks for the reply, I thought about ordering some cleaner stuff but I don’t know if that will cut it for me. I would say it’s a severe clog that hinders the trucks ability to drive so I might need a heavier approach. I hear the part itself is hard to find and costly so I’m wondering if I could...
  11. Catalytic converter

    Anybody have any experience/tips or tricks cleaning them? Thinking about taking it off and maybe soaking and pressure washing it. I have a some minimal experience working on my own truck but am no mechanic. I just dumped a good bit of money into my ranger with a good ol’ boy mechanic just to...
  12. 88 ranger, can't find problem, please help

    I have been chatting with user Mark_88 and he has been very helpful but he suggested I also put a summary of the problems I am still having here on this forum so here it is. A problem I was initially having lead to a no start problem. The no start problem is resolved but the initial problem is...
