Answers :

If the catalytic converter disintegrated before you replaced it, the muffler may have been clogged by chunks of ceramic falling from the cat and migrating back to the muffler.\015\012
\015\012Try this: drive the car warm, then stop and with a helper to gradually raise the RPMs while standing, listen at the tailpipe.\015\012If you clearly hear the individual firing of the engine then the system is probably clear.\015\012If you notice that the sound is more of a hiss, then either the muffler or (if it has one) the resonator are clogged.\015\012
\015\012On a car with a heavy-gauge stainless exhaust system, two shots from a .357 magnum into the tailpipe opened it up again (forever) and didn't really make much difference in the loudness of the exhaust.\015\012I wouldn't recommend doing that with most exhaust systems though.  \015\012

My 2001 Dodge Ram 2500 diesel has had a lack of power issue that originally occurred in warm weather usually when first started and would last up to 2-3 miles, then all of a sudden would take off like a rocket. When it was cold(below 45 degrees), there was no problem. Lately it occurs at just about any temp upon start-up. One thing I eventually learned was that if I cycled the ignition key during this lack of power as it occurred, it cleared out for a period. Most of the time, the problem might
