SOURCE: catalytic converter it is a toxic and hazardous

no not toxic. you can sell your old one for around $100. most have platnuim in them. if you remove it it is a federal offense up to $50,000 fine if you are caught. another example of goverment too big. alot of muffler shops will run you a custom exhaust for off road. you do not need the cat for off road.

You may have what they call a pre-cat. as well as the actual converter two. People shoul;d always check the pre-cat before the main one if you think something got stopped up and it won't start. Hope this is a little help. Raz

Can remove the "Catalytic Converter" on 1990 F-250

I doubt removing the cat will cause any major problems with the truck. At some point the check engine light will come on and that may cause it to run richer than normal.
It is a federal offense to remove it with up to a $10,000 fine, but only if you get caught. So keeping it on the farm is probably safe.

1990 chrysler lebaron goes into limp mode have to stop car restart and problems stop temporarily

The symptoms you describe, "limp mode", no check engine light, after a restart you get a temporary cure, and the year of your vehicle, tell me your catalytic converter is becoming clogged.

As your vehicle warms, the exhaust pressure builds and can't properly escape through the catalytic converter. When you turn the vehicle off, the pressure slowly releases, and when restarted it will run ok again until the pressure builds.

I would replace the catalytic converter, and that should resolve your issue.

I hope this information helps you, and I wish you luck on your repair.
