Is the check engine light on?
Are there any codes in the computer?
Are you looking for some possible causes?
Thank you for that information.
I will list some possible causes here for you below.
The most common causes are..
It depends how it goes bad.
Is it cracked?
Does it sound like there is an exhaust leak?
Ok, however, the exhaust manifolds will not cause the engine to run rough or hesitate.
The only way the converters would cause the engine to run rough or hesitate would be if they were plugged up. And if this were the case, it would NOT be intermittent like you are describing.. so no, based on your explanation, the converters are not the problem.
I am glad I can help!

Sure it could be partially plugged.. but again, it would not be intermittent.
Some other possible causes are engine coolant temp sensor, MAP sensor and PCM.
The map sensor is located on the throttle body
The engine coolant temp sensor is located by or behind the alternator
The PCM is located right by the air filter housing.
You are most welcome.
