my xr6 today started playing up
the Cat converter is rattling old issue
but the car is very sluggish at revving i used to hit the rev limiter no problem at 5800rpm now it doesnt go past 4500 and it takes ages to get there while making a different noise and this is with tip tronic selected in 1st it will not go pasted 4500 yesterday it was completely normal

Cheers
Danny

if the cat has colapsed that would be a big part of why it won't rev
