Engine Performance problem
2002 Hyundai Elantra 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 133, 00 miles
My car is acting very strange. The engine wants to quit on me. It keeps stalling. When I am driving, the engive willl cut out for a few seconds and if I keep the gas on, it will like restart. It is hard to explain but it is almost like it shorts out. I have had cars not idle for me but this is different. It just dies
even when I am applying the gas to it. Doesn't matter how fast or slow I am going.
We recently removed the catalytic converter because it was plugged and just put in a straight pipe. Could the two be related somehow?
Thanks for any help you might be able to provide. I know it is kind of vague but not sure how to explain any better.
