Thanks for your reply! The mechanic that replaced the cat is the one that stated "I should have it checked out". He thought that the issue started with my plugs misfiring. I called the mechanic's shop yesterday and talked to the owners assistant. He was very surprised that a cat could go bad unless than two weeks. He stated that new converters have heavy metals in them and should not melt or burn up within 9 days. I don't want to do anything as far as legal action, by any means. I wanted the problem to go away. The check engine light issue. Is how am I supposed to know something is wrong with my cat when I get no warning light. The vehicle went to crap in less than a week before I had the cat replaced. It's not like I was ignoring an issue. Bam. And it was fried. I'm just a little heated that I'm told about getting new plugs and what not checked out AFTER he replaced the cat. Is the cat flooded with fuel when it is park and idling. Because it doesn't make any rattling. Only when I accelerate. Do these after markets have warranties?
