Best answer for What Can I Do About A Clogged Catalytic Converter
Catalytic converter internally looks like a honeycomb. It is made of ceramic and can break if hot and submerged in water or run through a car wash that sprays cold water under the vehicle.
Or could have gotten clogged by carbon from a poorly running engine.
Either way It will have to be replaced, there is no unclogging or rebuilding of this part.
