could a catalytic converter missing a heat sheild be the reason why the transmission fluid(and cooling lines) which is a few inches away is overheating and spewing out after driving for about 30 minutes on the highway? thanks.

Check all your fluid lines. If they are melted/broken then I would say so. If you haven;t had any previous problems prior to this, then I'd say that your answer.
Be cool.

Probably not. The heat shield is mainly so grass or anything combustible on the ground doesn't touch the Cat, and start at fire. It's possible, that it would be causing this problem, but not probable.

Its possible but it seems like you have a bigger problem. also how hot is the cat getting? if its glowing red or close to it then you're running too rich and my need to replace the o2 sensors/ change jets.

Why are you coming to UG for CAR QUESTIONS?

Srsly...



Because it costs money to go to a mechanic.

And as long as you know who to listen to then you can do it yourself.
