Recommended Posts

hi

my car has got a bad problem .

wenever the car is reved over 2000 rpm it makes a rumbling noise from the engine almost like it cannot get rid of the exhaust gasses

the cat is also making some strange NOCKING AND RATTLING noises. almost like i have and exhaust bracket gone . (which i dont ) haha

i didnt no if the cat was blocked and was not letting the gasses escape fast enough.

anyway i really hope someone can help as i am stuck without a car .

the rattling your cat is making is because it has probably broken up inside as this is the usual tell tale sign, and could well be causing a blockage and hence your lack of power

1 of 3 things to do first.

Take the CAT off and replace.

Take the CAT off and clear out and re-fit.

Take the CAT off and fit CAT replacment pipe.

Try one of these and see what happens then.
