    The malfunction indicator light can indicate many different types of problems; of which the catalytic converter is just one posibility (and a not very common one). I would suggest taking the car to an Auto Zone store; where they can scan your computer for trouble codes at no charge. The code which triggered the light will indicate what the problem is.

    If the catalytic converter is bad; driving with it in that condition will probably not cause permanent engine damage.
