Cheek your ex conver it sounds stopped up


The catalytic converter is most Lilkely clogged . This is a common probebly with those trucks as my son has a 96 that did the same thing. We took a grinder a cut a couple of slits in the down pipe before the cat and it ran fine until he could afford a new one ,

Catalytic converter is plugged or the exhaust pipe is collapsed.
