      Um, maybe it's the catalytic converter?

      Seriously, if you're looking to avoid replacing that, you might try replacing the rear O2 sensor, which will have to be replaced anyway since it's 99.9% likely to be destroyed when removing it from the 15yo cat. After that doesn't fix it, you'll be able to swap it over.
