    Anyone successful at replacing the catalytic converter heat shield?

    I bought a 2001 100 series a couple of months ago and noticed that the heat shield on my driver side cat is missing while I was looking for the famous " heat shield rattle". The noise is probably from the passenger side heat shield which is barely holding on. I'll probably just buy a hose clamp...

    OEM exhaust converter retainer melting?

    Hi mud h8ers, I have a really stupid question. I am trying to close a leak in my exhaust system at the flange where the catalytic converter meets the muffler. Can the converter retainer on the exhaust system melt? My 1997 has a pretty rusty exhaust system, and I replaced the gasket, bolts, nuts...

    Wanted  FJ60 Catalytic Converter Temperature Probe

    Hi guys, I’m in the process of replacing my catalytic converter and associated hardware, and realized I’m missing this piece. All that remains are two wires in place where the sensor was. I stole these photos from another thread (thank you to who took them). This will be going on my ‘87 FJ60...

    Hard start/ Cats/fuel pump/02 sensors/

    so I’ve scoured different forums but having no luck solving a hard start issue. Bought a 99 lx470 about 2 months ago. Ran amazing for a couple weeks and still runs great once it’s running but after having it two weeks it would intermittently crank at start but not fire. Turn the key off and try...

    I pulled into the driveway today and my car was running rough. Fine all the way home other than that. I rev the engine and the CEL comes on. Check the code and it says there is a misfire in cylinder #1. I can smell gas or rich exhaust in car. Pop hood while it is running and see exhaust...

    Buying a 1997 (I Hope) - Help with Emissions Testing, Catalytic Converter

    Hey all. I found a 1997 40th Anniversary with 250k miles in amazing shape. The second owner has driven it for the last 16 or 17 years and taken great care of it. I put a $500 deposit on it last week to hold it while we sorted out the purchase details. He took the truck for emissions testing...

    Single catalytic converter

    I was getting a catalytic converter CEL code on my 1997 LX450. I did some online shopping and decided to go with the Magnaflow 99006HM universal ones. Since Magnaflow stated this was for front or back, I ordered two to go inline. I got a call from my muffler guy telling me that there was not...

    California Smog and Catalytic Converter CAT

    Just wanted to pass on an FYI that on my last smog test, earlier in the month, both stations I went to, the tech actually crawled under the truck and recorded the part # of the CAT and checked against a database for CA compliance. I've since talked to a couple of other people who had the same...

    Is anyone running a single catalytic converter in there fzj80? Any smog issues? I want to delete one of the cataylic converters and tuck my exhaust closer to the underside of the vehicle, but living in California I need it to pass smog. I want to run the exhaust into a single catalytic converter.

    Remove catalytic converter ?

    In arkansas we don't require a smog test on vehicles. Would my lc run any better if i cut the cat converter off and had a pipe welded in? Or would this cause an O2 sensor to go into fault mode or something similar? Always lookin for improvement!

    Fj62 Cat issue

    I have a '89FJ62 and my one catalytic converter is rattling like a tin can full of marbles. No real loss of power but annoying as hell. Cat gone bad? Any suggestions for non-OEM replacements? Thanks, Jim in PA
