Question about 1999 Chevrolet Cavalier
While crossing train tracks .. do i need to replace the converter, or do i need the whole muffler system?
Thatdepends on who you go to to fix your car. most garages want you to spend money and they hate to weld

NO you can not drill holes before the Catalytic Converter to give it air. Drilling a hole will set the service engine soon light on and you'll sound like a tank coming down the street. And why do you want to give the catalytic some air anyway's ??? Good luck and keep me posted.

Either your timing belt or chain has broken or the pistons are destroyed due to lack of oil, overheating or just you basic engine wear.

Local muffler shop can weld it back together. Or if it's at a joint that has a flange, then the flange gasket can be replaced. Are the two pieces held together with bolts or are they welded.

check your fuel pressure regulator for a torn diaphram, which can cause a rich condition. The regulator is on top of the engine connected to the fuel injector rail with a hose. There is a second gas hose and a vacuum line attached. Pull the vacuum hose off and plug the hose with a golf tee. Start the car and check to see if any gas comes out of the regulator vacuum port. If yes, replace the regulator. If not, you may want to check the oxygen sensor that is indicating poor converter performance. You might try swapping it with the other downstream sensor and clear the code to see if the code comes back to the same sensor or the same converter. Let me know if you have questions.
