I have a 2007 Ford Five Hundred and was driving down the freeway when I heard a popping sound and realized i was losing acceleration speed. Had to call a tow truck. What does this sound like?

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Heard a popping noise as I was driving down the freeway and realized that I
was losing acceleration speed.  Pulled over and the car cut off.  I was able to
restart the car but once I took my foot off the gas it shrugged and jerked
repeatedly.  I had to call a tow truck.  If it is my cat. converter why don't they
just by-pass it?  How many c converters are in a Ford Five Hundred?

Popping noise might have been the serpentine belt snapping. Nothing to do with the exhaust.

I just got the call and it is my converters. BTW.....I have three converters in a 2007 Ford Five Hundred. Are you kidding me?

I'm not there to look at the car, but what caused the converters to fail? Did you have the jerking and CEL on for a period of time before this happened?
