i have an 04 Indy with 140k. I recently found out that my cat was bad. The car would bog down and sputter when going uphill. I would have to shift down to 2 in order to make this hill. I cnt accelerate hard because it sputters and my RPMS jump up and down. Then my check engine light blinks. If I accelerate lightly in 3rd and then bump up to Drive, the car runs fine. I got my cat cut off and it helped a little bit. Any ideas or opinions?
Chances are you had a bad misfire which caused the cat to become clogged. Get a code reader and check the codes. Im guessing you have some bad plugs, wires, or coil.
I back this claim 100%. I had a bad plug cause a CEL to pop on being related to the cat. Had a universal cat put on about 2 years ago. Make sure you don't have anything else besides AC Delco wires and plugs. Any other brands can cause problems. Especially Bosch.

How much miles are on those seats? How much pounds of ass were applied to the seat during every trip? Lol
This thread is about *this* far from being about me, all oiled up, eating chili mac in a walmart bathroom.
