it's coughing up flakes of carbon out the exhaust pipe.
So much so that my wife is pissed that it's all over the hood of her car :eek:
Is this normal ?

I know a bad O2 will screw up a cat convertor but where did this stuff come from ?

-before the cat
-from the cat
-from the muffler and tail pipe

When I pulled the old sensor it was caked with carbon and I hope this shite isn't going right back into the new O2 sensor :confused:

Sound like it was running way rich. The cat should be able to clean it's self of the carbon in about a 1/2 tank of gas.

Just tell the wife to please be patient and that you will wipe off her hood!
I tell her that every morning :flipoff2:





Do you think the carbon has built up within the entire exhaust system ?
or just in the cat ?

I don't want to replace another $80 sensor ONLY to have it last 30K. ($330 from the Stealer)
If I need to pull apart the pipes I'll do it.

I just installed a new cat so I know it's good for another 75K or so.
