    The plugs on both sides all have white deposits on them, so seems to be running lean. The strange thing is that no codes have been thrown yet, but maybe I haven't run it long enough? Either way,...

    This started with the cat getting hot, dumping smoke from the engine bay, and starting a nearby rubber isolator on fire. I figured it was a bad cat, so I ordered a replacement and installed it.

  3. Catalytic Converter Smoking but Not Plugged

    I'm struggling to figure out what's causing my driver's side catalytic converter to start smoking. After running the car for about a minute after cold start, a significant amount of smoke comes up...

    Thanks for the tip. I checked all of the plug boots last night and found one that looks damaged on the inside compared to all of the other ones. Since the issue doesn't appear to be a catalytic...

    A friend and I have been doing some troubleshooting on the car while I wait to get it serviced at Woodhouse next week. At this point, we've pretty much ruled out the catalytic converter.

    I will ask the shop to check for this - thanks a lot for the info.



    Oil doesn't seem to smell like fuel. The previous cat that failed was on the passenger side, so now cats have failed on both...

    I will take it to Woodhouse to see if they can't figure out what's plugging up the cats. Hoping it's just a pop tune that's dumping fuel into the cats. Regardless, I will be reaching out about some...

    How did you diagnose the knock sensor issue? Were there any other symptoms that could indicate this being the cause?

    That's exactly what I am afraid of. Don't want to tow it there and leave it outside for weeks, or have to tow it home again and back once the part comes in (Woodhouse is an hour away so a flatbed tow...

    This is definitely an option I am considering - maybe cheaper in the long run than replacing OEM cats.



    I will probably go with hi-flow cats if it turns out to be the stock catalytic converter....

    When I previously had a plugged cat, the car had noticeable power loss and hesitation for several days and eventually threw a code. I didn't notice any performance decrease while driving before it...

    I've noticed this same issue with my Gen 3. AC still seems to work fine. I notice the noise more in lower gears, especially near 2-3k RPM at lower speeds. Seems to become less noticeable as the car...

    Also just a PSA if you decide to go with braided power steering lines - you'll want to zip tie them away from the PCM so they don't rub through the PCM cable. I had a shop install mine and they...
