    so my check engine light finally went on......

    ya so a couple weeks ago i had some rattling under my car. thought something was loose but i revd it a little and some chunks of the inside of my cat. converter came flying out. i know somebody said that your check engine light will eventually come on. either some more chunks are caught in the piping and is restricting the air flow or one of my cats is bad. soim gunna get it checked out, and hopefuly it wont cost alot. also i have been notcing it has been a little hesitant when im on the throttle. do you guys have any input on this??
