It sounds like the clutch disc is worn requiring the clutch components to be replaced. Is the Check Engine Light due to code P0420 (low cat efficiency?)

Yes, the check engine light is on. Is getting an after market direct fit catalytic converter a cheaper option for me? Kinda strapped for cash right now...
