Question Answered: 

just take it to a shop.they got high level scan tools to find any ignition faults,smoke machines to find vacuum leaks n most likely a back pressure guage to find if the converter is actually bad.parts stores only scan your vehicle hoping to sell you parts.they rarely have a real mechanic n they don't do diagnostics whatsoever.
