Engine Performance problem
2003 Toyota Corolla 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 96,000 miles

I have a 2003 Corolla, and I just recently had the converter replaced. My wife is the one who drives the car more than I do. She noticed that it hesitates as she accelerates, it stutters a little bit like it's not getting any power, and then after she lets up on the gas and does it again it will accelerate. Can someone explain to me what could be the problem? I hope it's not a diffective converter. Thanx

Check engine came on. I took it in to toyota and they said the code for the converter came on. I got a second diagnosis and the mechanic told me it was the converter.
