  1. hello Scotty I have been a fan since 2010 learning stuffs from you about but this is the first time am contacting you cause I can't find answers regarding my issues I have a Toyota 4runner limited 2018 current milage is 36,465km I got it about a year ago with just 8,000+ km on it but as the days turn into months I noticed a drop down in power and initial acceleration so I toke it to the workshop to have it diagnosed it didn't show any fault code everything seems fine but the mechanic said to change the fuel filters and clean out the injector nozzles we did all that and still no improvement I even changed the air filter but still nothing so the mechanic said to check the catalyst converter to see if it's damaged that it could be the cause so he went down toke them out so so we can have a look but guess what both sides have no catalyst converter inside the pot and I was surprised cause all cars should have a catalyst converter right so I started searching online for answers but didn't find any that's why I need your help to help me figure this out so my question is does the car come with a catalyst converter if yes how many left or right or just left and if it doesn't have a catalyst converter is it safe can that cause a poor performance or lack of power? Also I will like to state that I got it from a used car dealer here in my country Lagos Nigeria west Africa with just 8,000 km on it and and there are no signs that The catalyst converters has been cut off everything seems to be there or the way it supposed to be originally no signs of cutting off the parts to take out the catalyst converters everything looks normal from the outside but from the inside of the pot there is no honeycomb catalyst converter looking things inside

Well people remove the cats when they get clogged they only burn pollution they have no effect on the running of the car and if you remove them most cars will actually run better. That's not your problem if the car doesn't run right a zillion things can make it go bad I would get it scanned by a good mechanic and have them analyzed the data first to see if any of the senses are bad to do a relative compression test to see if the engine is worn you don't just guess what parts
