    You will need a gas torch to heat pipe, this is better left to a muffler shop.

Well, those are on your exhaust system. You have to cut the old one out and then weld the new one in. I'ld take it to a exhaust shop instead of the dealer. They would be alot cheaper.

A direct fit converter for your car is is available from Eastern Catalytic. However a reputable muffler shop should be able to install a threaded port for the 02 sensor if you want to go that route. Call around, get prices, and from that you can make a decision.
Hope this helps.

Replace catalytic converter


The oxygen sensors are easy to replace which takes a 22mm wrench or a special removal tool. The converters are the problem. These to my knowledge have to be welded on. A local shop usually sells aftermarket which are just as good because these have to meet the same standards. For your accord you should need one converter. If the Accord is a 4 cylin it will take 2 oxygen sensors and 6 cylinder takes 3. Usually there are one sensor at the manifold and one at the converter. I would buy aftermarket sensors. I work at Bosch and operate the line that makes these. These look different than your OEM but are actually the same or better. Aftermarket is about $40, OEM is about $70-110. You can buy the converters online cheap, but buying from a shop you can at least show up there if you have problems. You can replace the sensors after the converters are replaced which takes about 10 min to replace. Good Luck

How about when u have 2 catalytic converters in the same bank 1.?


If you have more than 60K miles start by replacing the Oxygen sensor(s) that is(are) installed after the catalytic converter(s). 
P0421: Warm up catalyst efficiency below threshold. This code means that the computer is detecting the catalyst not warming up to full function quickly enough based on information from the post cat O2 sensor. 

Good luck and hope this helps.

2001 mitsubishi galant,2.4L eng. Getting DTC 421. Is this code related to the catalytic converter? Check eng. light always on, also DTC 302 showing.


DTC code P0421 is the O2 sensor that indicates a an issue with the Catalytic Converter. Replace the O2 sensor to the Catalytic Converter "the one after Converter" It's common for the sensor to fail and you can pick one up from Auto Zone and they will have the step by step instructions to replacing the O2 sensor. 
DTC code P0302 Indicates a misfire on cylinder #2. Address the spark plug, spark plug wire, and injector. Look for any damages and try running some fuel injector cleaner through the fuel system to clean out the injectors. 
Good luck and hope this helps.

A muffler shop should be able to replace just the converter

midas just wants to sell you a diagnostic. just leave.

you can either shop around the internet for a cheap aftermarket catalytic converter and order one... or just go to a local muffler shop and buy a cheap universal cat, have them install it, then wheel back to autozone and clear the engine code.

if you want to check the cat, bang on it with your fist from underneath and listen for loose material bouncing around... if you want to fix it yourself, you should be able to find one by typing "acura TL catalytic converter" into google and following the links to all the different online dealers. you should be able to find one for around $40... hope this helps...
