Two mechanics have driven it the last month and say it's fine
My husband drove it; thinks it's my imagination, but I know how my car is supposed to run and it isn't performing like it should. I know it is an old car but something has to be wrong with it. The only other thing I can think of is the transmission, but it's shifting okay. Sorry for the novel, but I'm at my wits end!!
It soulds like a classis catalytic converter problem. The sound is the key. Take it to a garage where they have a exhaust pressure and emissions tester and see if the engine has restricted exhaust flow. I'll bert that your engine temp is a bit higher also.
One time on a long trip across the desert it happened to me between Eli and Reno Nevada. I beat on the bottom of the converter breaking up some of the inside material. It worked for me until I got to Reno and had it replaced. Good luck

Hey, thanks! I did have my exhaust system replaced in December; do you think they would have replaced the Cat.converter too? If not that could very well be the problem. and yes my temp does get slightly above normal half-way through the trip and then goes back down. I'll have it checked out. Thanks again.
