Let it run and see if check engine light comes on and see what code it gives u. It could also be ur timing chain. But when u get the code, it'll narrow it down


I let it run for about 2 hours and still no check engine came on and no codes


So I need to reinstalled a new catalytic converter or could I just clean it out


I have heard they can be cleaned out but never had done it just usually replace.


Ok ill just replace them ill try to keep yaw update to what happens


I would drive it til u get the check engine code, replacing cads will be expensive, there's 3 of them
