Services Performed
  • Test drove the vehicle on the freeway and felt a lack of power. Noticed engine load is only at 65% with full throttle. Fuel trims are good ruling out a fuel supply issue. Tested the mass air flow with lab scope and found oscillations at higher RPMs, indicating pressure going back through the intake. Removed the oxygen sensors and test backpressure. Found front bank to be at 5psi at 2500 RPMs and the rear bank is at 3psi. Specification is no more than 1psi. Catalytic convertors are restricted and require replacement. After repair, engine power is restored and load is now 83%
