99 Ranger 2.5 Chemtool clogged cat convertor
Hello to all.
My young son poured a 16oz can of Chemtool B-12 in about 1/4 tank of gas, it was running fine but he thought maybe it would be good to clean the injectors and etc. and after about 20m mi. on hwy at 65 mph engine started losing power and making spark knock like noises.
Soon the engine died. Wont start but will spin over fast while trying.
Checked and the timing belt is on and it was replaced by a mechanic 6 months ago. I'm thinking the Chemtool B-12 in such a small amount of gas could have ruined the cat conv. But I am not a mechanic so I dont know whats wrong with it. I know that Chemtool B-12 is powerful stuff and should have had a full tank of gas. Going to take the cat loose or off and put more gas in and try starting it. Hope it did'nt ruin the valves. Any advice on this highly appreciated.
