IN the US EPA mandates that catalytic converters are covered under warranty 8 years or 80000 miles.If you fall within this the dealership should replace at no cost to you.

My car will crank an starts but soon as u hit the gas it will sputter an back fire cut off.cut catalic convertor off it was clogged. What else could it be

Your year--make--model would be helpful? How long since a tune-up? Any applicable trouble codes? Maybe there is a timing problem? As far as checking fuel pressure, some of the national brand auto stores will rent out tools and gage. You may have to put up a deposit, but, you get it back when you return tool.

The car runs good but when you are not accelerating or decellerating it pings

Cars ping on hard exceleration or light/medium exceleration up hill or from take off but not at idle or declerating. I would check belt on front of engine and remove it to check alternator, water pump, power steering pump, a/c compressor clutch, idler/tensioner pullies for excessive play. Also check for exhaust leaks because sometimes they may sound like a ping and another thing you might want check is the catalytic convertor, the elment inside will come loose and rattle and this is notice more at idle and on a decel. If you tap catalytic convertor with hammer and you hear a rattle then replace catalytic convertor.
