1996 Chevrolet Camaro RS 6 Cyl 3.80L
What's the best way to clean the cat converter on my 96 Chevy Camaro 3.8? So far no codes have popped up.
So far I've changed EGR valve, map sensor,ignition coils, ignition module, spark plus & wires, muffler,also had fuel injectors & fuel pump checked.When I first take off the car runs smooth until I get to 50 or 60 mph them it starts to hesitate, loose power before it eventually starts to level off.If I punch it, it'll get to about 40 mph before it starts to skip & hesitate.When in park and I rev the engine and hold it at about 4000 Rpm's it skips in & out.Someone suggested I drive around in 2nd gear for awhile also herd about pouring a gallon lacquer thinner in the tank.Don't want to have to sell the house to fix this thing, HELP!!!!
Have you changed the fuel filter? If not, change the filter as first (or next) step. Bad idea to add anything to the fuel tank to 'clean out' the catalytic converter - this will only destroy the pellets and coating inside the converter housing.
