Disconnect the battery for a half an hour or more but before you do make sure you have access to the radio code if it still has the original HU.
The filler plug is on the side of the diff near the passenger side ABS tone wheel.

No, its on the side just in front of where the drive shaft flange comes out on the LHS.

A blocked Cat would show up more as a lack of power and willingness to rev. A coil pack issue can cause some wierd faults but it would be hard to cause a missfire just after 10 seconds of idle. I would for now not replace it on a try it and see hunch but do an ECU diagnostic for a sensor issue somewhere or maybe even check for a vacuum leak.
