Does A Catalytic Converter Affect The Performance Of A 2000 Ford Focus


Question: Does A Catalytic Converter Affect The Performance Of A 2000 Ford Focus,
My car is running sluggish and its as if there is no power in it. Normally my car will get up and go (manual). My check engine light is and has been on for some time. I had a mechanic hook a computer up to my car the the code came out saying my catalytic converter is bad or somthing.
And currently i dont have the money to replace mine in my car if it is the case. Is there any temp fixes that will buy me some time?

Best answer for Does A Catalytic Converter Affect The Performance Of A 2000 Ford Focus

The other potential issue besides what the person above me said… is that a catalytic converter can foul and become plugged. When this happens, the engine cannot breathe due to the extreme backpressure in the exhaust.

The only option in this case is to replace the catalytic converter.
