Just a question,
Could a clogged cat cause a rough idle somehow?

Ok Jeffsr;
You've given me great advice many times in the past, and always with an explanation. I'm going to change my cat hopefully within the next couple of weeks. I definitely let you know how everything turns out. Once again.TIA!!

BTW, what leads you to believe that the cat is obstructed? Did you have a recent catastrophic event with the car??

The reason I believe the cat to be obstucted is: I recently changed the O2 sensor, shortly after that I noticed, when I am decelerating I hear alot of back pressure coming from the exhaust, does this make any sense? Also, when changing the fuel pump and fuel filter, I noticed the metal around the cat was peeling off. The car does have over 192,000 mis. on it. I don't smell anything(rotten egg smell) or anything like that.
