I doubt it is the cat.
If the cat is plugged up the engine should start but have no power.
Yes it could have jumped time or you could have a problem with the distributor or the cap and rotor. It could be firing on the wrong cylinders if the cap and rotor are worn out.

Sounds like it could be the alternator. Call your local Auto Zone store and inquire with the cars symptoms. They give free advice and even let you use their tools for free.

SOURCE: timing

The engine computer uses the spout connector to change engine timing for various conditions. With the spout connector disconnected, the base timing should be set to 10* BTDC. Various things could be causing your problem. You need to get the codes read to find the cause. Most parts store will read the codes for you. It can be run with it disconnected, but will affect preformance and mpg, as there will be no timing advance.

Hi David Lee,

It seems you have problem of your combustion chamber ( It does not work perfectly). This problem cause your fuel goes to catalyc converter.
So please go check your combustion chambers and their components.

You need to replace the catalitic converter. If you try to weld it the heat will destroy the interior anyway.
