LOSS OF POWER

2003 Saturn L200 • 4 cylinder FWD Automatic • 221,198 miles

I have a 2003 Saturn L200 4 cyl. With 221,000 city miles that i've owned since it had 20,000 miles on it. It has alll of a sudden has a hard time maintaining 70 miles p.H. On highway, and exhast noise is load right under our feet. I have tuned it up, replaced the fuel filter, changed the air filter, and I was wonder ing if I should get the catalytic conv. Checked.

Do you have any trouble code's in the computer?I would have the exhaust checked for excessive back pressure.I have seen a lot of those cat's go bad.

Checked for codes, did not have any active or saved, so carried it to a shop were they check the exhast and the catalytic converter was stopped up. They replaced it and runs great now. Thank you for your help.
