Got a 94 Thunderbird 3.8 Supercharged, replaced the head gasket cause it was leaking, wouldn't start afterwards, towed it to the garage, they replaced the MAP sensor other minor stuff and got it started, ran great for 4 days, then died in traffic and hasn't run since. It's starts but dies immediately at best. Towed it back to the garage who looked and tried things for 2 weeks before giving up.I towed it to the dealer (which I should have done in the first place), and they diagnosed the catytlic (sp) converters being clogged causing the problem. And estimated replacement at $2600 plus labor, more then the value of the car. We tried the only aftermarket brand listed but it didn't fit.I'm afraid that it's a bit more then the converters and afraid to spend that amount of money not knowing for sure. I'm ready to have the car towed home (4th towing charge :( ) so I can remove the converters and break out the honeycomb and reinstall them just to see if the car runs right.I'm about frustrated with this problem car and wonder if anybody else has suggestions or ideas.
have the same problem?
