Engine code are the faults detected by the car computer (ECM). U need to read it with a scanner or goto ur local auto parts store and they'll do it for u free of charge. Catalytic is the converter like a muffler right behing the engine exhaust manifold, if it starts to plug up, the engine can't exhaust, therefore can't run
