For the older models the catalytic converter is not linked to the ECM so it should not be the cause.
Spark plug leads would cause hesitation or misfiring but not pinging. If ignition timing is too advaned, pinging would occur. Is the ignition timing set correctly?
Was anything done prior to this occurring?
