You aren't likely to get much help here since your argument is with Lincoln and this website is for general problems.
You may be out of luck with any satisfaction you might get; your car is 8 years old and if you have more than 80,000 miles on it, the failure of the catalytic converter will not be under warranty unless you have separately purchased one. Under that mileage, most parts of the emission control system are not allowed to fail. They are warranted to outlast that mileage unless an item is specified by the mfr. for replacement at a lesser mileage as a 'service item:
EPA warranty conditions

Catalytic converter & check egine light


You didnt say what country or state you are from. If you are from the US removing the cats will cause your to fail safety and emissions inspections due to missing components ie no catalyctic converter. The cats dont have anything to do with exhaust noise. They are there to capture bad emissions. What dealer did you take it to? A reputable dealer would not have told you straight pipes would solve the problem.

Have a rattle when car is idling. have been told it is the torque converter. box works fine


Hope this saves you a heap of dollars.Nearly all jeeps get a rattle from the cat/converter in the exhaust pipe.Crawl underneath when the motor is cool and give it a few good whacks.you might hear it rattle.Other than that,if you bring the revs up and it stops,it is the cat/conv.The internals of the cat. fall apart and rattle around at idle.When the revs pickup,the exhaustflow keeps the internals from moving around.I have seen this very often.I hope this is your problem and not the trans.Hope this helps

Sounds like a problem with your catalytic converter or possibly just an o2 sensor. If it is a cat problem I would make sure to have them address it b4 your warranty is up as they are typically very expensive!

By removing the battery & the radiator the sensors sent signals to the ECM. You probably have to get the computer scanned & reset with a professional diagnostic tool. Take it to a reputable tech.

there is a pan on the "cat" it rusts out frequently and rattles when loose. if you take it to a private shop the mechanic could check it out and tack weld it solid for little cost.

Metal piece hanging in middle of undercarriage just behind wheels


It's likely the heat shield for the catalytic converter. There's really no repair for it. Mechanics won't usually spot weld it and they can't remove it. Apart from a little rattle now and then, there's really nothing to worry about.
