I need to know what to expect as far as performance if the catalytic converter is plugged or bad on a 2004 ford taurus

If your catalytic converter is plugged up, it will create a restriction in your exhaust system. The buildup of backpressure will cause a drastic drop in engine performance and fuel economy, and may even cause the engine to stall after it starts if the blockage is severe.
