94 Mercury Topaz, 115,000 miles, 4 cyl. A week ago, I had the catalytic converter replaced on car. Was driving it Tuesday (35 mph) and all of the sudden, the check engine light came on, and the car slowed down to a full stop during driving. I tried to restart the car, and the battery was fine, because I was getting lights, and it was trying to turn over, but wouldn't stay running. A man that had stopped to help suggested that it could be the fuel sensor or the exhaust backfiring (or something like that) into the catalytic converter. Anything sound familiar? What could be the problem and solution?
