Advice needed plz


Need some advice on my 156 JTS, been having trouble with it Jolting and Chugging in first and 2nd gear and a little in 3rd as im taking off and also doesnt have the drive in it that it used to. My Cataletic converter has a fault in it could this cause the car to do this?

Faults in CATs are usually it clogging up or breaking up that cause 'breathing' problems, usually higher up the rev range. They don't generate faults themselves, so I suspect you're referring to a lambda sensor. Do you have the fault codes that were read/reported?

Could also be the MAF though, and I'd start by taking it for a run with the electrical connector disconnected from it to see how it goes.
