You need to have the codes read and post what specific code you are getting in order to get an accurate 'diagnosis'. If you are running around on a misfire(indicated by the flashing CEL) that's an easy way to destroy a catalytic converter. Trans fluid isn't going to cause a misfire. Check the misfire sticky in this section https://www.taurusclub.com/forum/82-m...-misfires.html after you get the codes read and see where you need to go from there. It can be something simple as a coil/plugs/wires(most likely) to something as complex as the head gasket, which is also a failure point for the Vulcan.
