My cat always turn flamin red i mean it would burn a piece of paper if i stick it to it.
Somthing wrong with my fuel injector, every time i replace the fuse it would burn out and causing my cat to overheat.
i also have a horrible gas mileage at about 5-6 mpg. she also doesnt take off untill about 5 second even if i step the pedal to the metal. Could it be the spark plug or somthin?
someone please help me.

Sounds like an injector has shorted and is stuck open....

Pull the spark plugs and look at them to see which is the cylinder with the stuck injector. The offending cylinder should be fouled and pretty obvious.

Likely the cat is toast from what you describe. Once the problem is sorted out replacing the cat would be desireable to prevent it from plugging and causing high backpressure or causing a severe rattle if the cat brick breaks up inside the can.
