You're in the rough patch stage of car ownership. Your car is 15 years old, this is what happens with age, it really depends on how long you want to keep your car.. I don't know what condition your car is in or how many miles are on the vehicle, but, there's some daylight at the end of the tunnel, BUT, if you decide to fix everything, you'll have to keep it to 20 years to recover your investment....

What was the code designator....P0????? Flush the cooling system....replace radiator.....and perform a Cooling System Pressure Test. The CAT......a exhaust System BACK PRESSURE TEST should be performed to test the CAT. Get back to us with results.

Every Toyota that I have seen that the radiator cracked on, has had a blown headgasket or a cracked head, that can cause overheating and that would also explain the catalyst failure cause they don't like antifreeze. Have you noticed any white smoke on initial start or has it missed a little at first then runs fine? Have you had to add coolant lately?
