Question about 1998 Chevrolet Blazer
Engine starts fine but if cold it revs up good. once warmed up is when the troble starts. The exhaust tone is very quite or none, the exhaust comes out of the pipe real seady no pulseing or put put. The xhaust seems very hot and the converter seems very hot you pull out and the car picks up then slows down. Take a front oxagen senser out to create a leak leave it plugged in and tye it up someway so it won't get damaged while you drive. If the car drives much better the exhaust is cloogged. if you put a pressure gauge on the hole where the oxagen senser was screwed in and run the motor, ( just ram the hose against it ) if the gauge reads any more than 5 lbs. even with the engine revved up your clogged. Good is negitive pressure revved up

P1484 Catalytic Converter Overheat Detected A catalyst overheat condition has been detected by the catalyst temperature sensor
With the symptoms you are describing though, 99% sure that will be it.
Many times a "clogged" catalytic converter is actually a broken one. Inside the unit, there is a honeycomb-like structure that aids the converter in superheating the exhaust fumes, which cuts down significantly on emissions. Over time, this honeycomb structure can get brittle and crack or chunk off inside the unit, which will impede the flow of exhaust. For this reason, many times a clogged or broken catalytic converter will rattle or make vibrating noises when the engine is given gas.
