03/23 Did give somebody a jump start whose battery was dead. Left scene and all appeared fine. Simply providing for context in the event it could have a bearing.
03/25 - Battey light came on - Had it tested & replaced as it showed as needing to be changed
03/25 Light still would go off so had the alternator checked and this was deemed to be bad & changed
Left shop all appeared fine
03/26 Service Engine soon light came on and engine running rough. First on steady and then blinking. Car was driving very sluggishly
03/27 Took car to mechanic who put it on diagnostics and said it hit 2 misfire codes. Fixed problem (moisture) and saif all diagnostics checked out fine
03/28 Service Engine soon came on again and ran VERY sluggishly. Barely got back to the Repair shop
03/29 Repair shop is telling me that I need a new Catalytic converter and bill is $ 2,500(in California). The diagnostics however are not leaving a trace of the problem per the mechanic. Ive read that these should last the life of acar so am just worried if it could be something else. I've never had any problems with my Truck in the past and now they keep coming
Any suggestions appreciated.
