    What would be ways to tell if my cats are clogged or need replacing? I know that when I step on the gas hard to pass someone, it kicks down and then feels like hitting a brick wall and really doesn't get me moving any faster and the exhaust smells bad afterward.

    Thanks,
    Jason

    You can test the temp at the front of the cat and at the back with a temp gun. If the front is way hotter than the back end, the cat is plugged. Look up Scotty Kilmer on you tube on how to check the cats and clean them with detergent.
