2006 pacifica catalytic converter replace

The catalytic converter on my 2006 Pacifica (115,000 miles) is bad and I am tired of looking at the check engine light. Is it an easy replacement? Does it bolt on or need to be cut/welded? I haven't looked underneath the car yet - want to see if it is something I want to tackle. It has no effect on the vehicle, hence I have not replaced it yet. But if it's not too difficult I will get to it. Thanks. HOGN

The exhaust converter should last 12 to 14 years

So your vehicle has not had a happy life

Most likely many cylinder misfires & a rich fuel
condition & possible other issues have ruined the
converter,if it is even ruined

The question as you explained it leads me to believe
you don't have the tools & experience to do what needed
to be done to the exhaust system or diagnosing any OBD2
issues such as oxygen sensors

need a repair shop or dealer

    I'm not sure what caused the converter to fail, but Pacifica converters have a bad history often failing within a year of being replaced. I told my mechanic the code was reading a bad O2 sensor (rear) and asked him to check the temperature at the rear. He confirmed the converter was not hot enough to properly burn the exhaust, causing the check engine code, but that it was not damaging to the engine.

I am not a mechanic, but if it is a bolt on converter and find the right replacement, it is something I can do. Just looking for some info to see whether or not I want to do it or have my mechanic do it.

The problem might have already been there,the steel wheels are making it noticeable,because they don`t cool down as quick.Most likely is the calipers sticking,or you have a set of high dollar brake pads on the vehicle,and they are heating the rotors up.The high dollar pads are a very hard composite pad witch produce a lot of friction,and heat as a sort of side affect.

First find where the leak is coming from. Check the bottom of the radiator first for white corrosion. If the leak puddles in the fron and you see white corrosion on teh bottom (fins) of the radiator, chances are you just need to replace it.

SOURCE: The ABS light is on my 2006 Chrsyler Pacifica Touring

Each wheel has an ABS Speed Sensor. The connectors for each of these is located in the wheel wells. The rears are up behind attached to the inside storage compartment in the wheel well and the front ones are located behind the plastic mud gaurd behind the shock. You have to pull the black plastic christmas tree holder out to get to them. There is a red safety clip on them that you have to move. I put an OHM meter on mine and they all checked at 558. I'm experiencing the same problem and have to start looking at a different problem now.

Hope that helps for your first go around of troubleshooting.

SOURCE: 2004 chrysler pacifica service tire system light

Make sure that your tire pressure sensors were not damaged. one simple way to check what tire sensor is causing the problem is to lower each tire individually and check to see if the message displays to a different tire or more than 1, depending on the TPM system your pacifica has. Chrysler has a TPM (tire pressure monitor) tester which can check each individual sensor for correct operation. and the sensor's batteries have typically a 5-7 year life span.

I replaced catalytic converter in my 2006 Pacifica and after two months check engine light came back on,code 420 bad cat.


you will get this code when the incompletely burned fuel in the cat has built up to a certain level and cat can no longer absorb more. The cause of incompletely burned fuel in the cat can be due to many reasons:

1. sparkplugs not firing correctly (wrong gap or fouled)(problem with ingntion components(wiring to spark plugs to high resistance)
2. fuel injectors are fouled.
3. bad fuel, incorrect fuel (regular vs premium-see user manual)

You will have to verify plugs are good, plug wires are good, injectors are clean, fuel is good.

once you get these things line out the light will eventually go out.

2006 pacifica


Car may be running rich. If the car is getting normal mpg, I would not worry. The codes that indicate poor converter efficiency indicate the converter is wearing out. If that code keeps coming back, replace the converter. If it is getting poor mpg, I would look for something causing rich operation. Possibly a broken fuel pressure regulator or maybe a bad map sensor. Continued rich operation will cause the converter to fail prematurely.

Look under the hood above the battery. In the box are your fuses and relays look for a bad fuse or a bad blower motor relay. If you read the cover you will see there are spare relays in the box just swap them

I have a 2007 Pacifica and the check engine light came on and a code PO 420. What does that mean?


P0420 is catalytic converter efficiency code. This code usually requires the PCM being reprogrammed or the catalytic converter replaced, sometimes both. How many miles are your pacifica? Emissions control equipment should be covered by an 80k / 8 year warranty.
