I just replaced the catalytic converter on my 89 Buick electra. The car still runs rough, a miss in the engine, and the new converter gets red hot.

Do you
have the same problem?

Check to make sure the O2 are working properly. If you had a PO420 code indicating a bad converter, often times the sensors cause the problem.
