I came off the interstate after cruising 80 mph for 40 minutes - came to a red light and suddenly loss A Lot of power from the V12 after driving approx. 1.5 miles with this loss of power- (car seems to be running on all cylinders- just no power) I pulled over and witnessed a cherry red passenger side catalytic converter - after the cat cooled down- I started the car- same problem - is this just a plugged cat or is there soemthing wrong wiht the timing/air fuel ratio- to cause the cat to melt ?
Towed the car home- replace the cat or what ?
