Question about 2003 Dodge Stratus

2003 Dodge Stratus Catalytic Converter

Thought transmission was slipping because car wouldn't shift gear properly and would not accelerate over 60 mph. This mechanic said it was a plugged converter and it need to be replace but he wants to charge a $1000 to replace converter. Well, the online price roughly $264.

What should I be paying to have it replaced on the average and where is the converter located.

    Good, now my last question. What should it cost to have it installed at the most by a mechanic. I've got a mechanic trying to tell me it's going to cost up to $700, now I know better than that.

2003 Dodge stratus jerks when i try to pick up speed.


There are a lot of things that can cause that, such as water in your gas. However, I would start simple and make sure all your spark plug wires are firmly attached. It can also be related to your transmission slipping.

No passing gear


My car did (past tense) the same thing. The service engine light is flashing until you let off the gas because raw fuel is being dumped into the catalytic converter. The transmission won't shift because the converter is plugged. When you push the pedal to the floor the transmission computer holds the transmission in gear. Meanwhile the engine computer is raising the rpms. It will seem like a transmission problem but it is more likely a plugged catalytic converter. I had converter changed. The engine has A LOT more power, great acceleration and the transmission shifts perfectly.
