Possibly related: pulled a moderate load around the block with the doghouse off and exhaust headers begin to glow red. Is this normal?
Possibly related: engine 'hunts' for idle during moderate decel. Idles fine at rest, only during decel from highway speeds. Like it is surging until it reaches lower speed at decel. TPS has been changed by dealership. Does this sound like clogged/failed cat converter? Logic is that while I am moving the cat is staying cool enough; when we stop to idle the temp goes up. When the cat is allowed to cool completely the van runs fine again. How to confirm, short of replacement? Could I cool it with a garden hose?
have the same problem?
