CAR NO POWER

Toyota Corolla

Hi
My friend has a 2000 corolla (100k km). As the car is idle, it run fine. But as pressing the gas pedal, it is no power. Even pedal all the way down. It have engine light on and kind bad smell at muffler. I think the caltelic converter is blocked. Is it right? Thank for your help

Disconnect the exhaust pipe up front or connnect a pressure gauge where the oxgen sensor is-anything over 3lbs calls for concern.

Before you disconnect an exhaust system you may need to check the timing. Those years were bad about belts/chains as it was the cross over year. If a belt and the little engine it, s timing belt time.
