    Stuttering almost stall????

    Can an UpPipe that has failed (i.e. 04' Catted stock uppipe) cause the vehicle to stutter and almost bog to stalling point. I know when my cat. converter failed and broke apart it started to clog airflow and would not allow acceleration and stalling points. Could this be something that is causing me to have stuttering , it doesnt happen all the time. I also had a cell come on once but then later it was gone, which was the ...hmm number escapes me but it was "Bank 1 to Rich", any ideas or suggestions are helpful.

    If the code was Bank 1 To Rich...I believe that is a P0172 ...either way when does the car stutter and stall like if your crusing and come up to a stop light and throw it in neutral? Check all of your air intake system as well as vacuum lines and make sure none are leaking or disconnected ( spary some gum cutter around intake gaskets and vacuum lines with the engine running and see if the idle changes...Also check your exhuast and make sure there are no holes in it or anything...If the cat. conv. in the up pipe came apart chances are you would have some noise because obviously parts would be getting sucked into the turbo and "poof" you have a boostless paperweight...When was the last time your fuel filter was changed? I would also check fuel pressure and make sure your MAF and IAT and CTS are functioning properly...Of course this is all only relevant information if the code you had was indeed at P0172...The next time you CEL illuminates def. have the code read if you have the means...
