Check fuel pressure. Possibly a failing/failed pump or clogged fuel filter. This would account for the 'catalytic converter' code. BTW post up the codes, if one of the codes was PO420 that is related to catalyst threshold efficiency if the secondary O2 picks this up it well set off. This usually occurs if the A/F mixture is incorrect.
