Losing power
 
Having problem with jeep losing horse power once it warms up. Gets a burning smell. Any ideas on what could cause this? It's fine after its been sitting awhile

Cat...best guess ..................sluggish and gets worse...Cat swells when Hot from running...cools down less restrictive...as I said just a guess based on my experience.

took mine to a shop. they charged $150 for the part and labor. Just throwing that out there.
