You replace the entire exhaust system, including the
converters back & new oxygen sensors
A 2000 vehicles converters, will not be working at all,
after 14 years,if they are original
If you go to Walker Exhaust on the internet & I
would not buy any other brand & you can not
afford the dealers prices of well over a thousand
dollars,you can see the picture of the parts you need
& write down the numbers
Rock Auto if they or other sites have those parts,they
will be less than the local parts stores.
A partial or patch job, is not what you should be doing
Replace everything & be done for the next six years
on the mufflers & 12 year or more on the cats
A good power steering rack that does not bind leak or is sloppy makes driving much pleasurable. So, obviously you need to fix it up by getting new power steering belt. You can get it at power steering they offer it in affordable rate.
To start with, I assume you have a warning light instead of an oil gauge. You could check the oil pressure with a mechanical gauge. The problem with low oil pressure can be the pump and also bad crank bearings. The bearings can be worn enough to loose most of the oil pressure before the oil gets up to the top of the engine. The problem with pumping oil up to the top is it needs to be in the passages of the block to get to the crank and cam bearings, not just on the cam itself. So even replacing the oil pump may not fix the issue.
You cant-sorry. If you have an emergency situation and are stuck somewhere you can take it off-punch out the honeycomb of platinum with a broom handle or prybar and replace. It will never pass emissions again but itll get you where you need to go.
Has the fuel filter been replaced with the fuel pump or it could be a restriction in the exhaust. In order to check that properly you would need a back pressure gauge and measure back pressure or just disconnect exhaust from the manifolds and drive it around and see if all the power is back.

By the time you buy the tools needed for the job, you will have spent nearly as much as what they want for labor. It's not an easy job, even for an experienced mechanic. Unless it's something you really want to do, I would advise letting the repair shop handle it. Shop around a little for the best price. Stay away from dealerships. Any auto repair shop or decent muffler shop should be able to handle the job. If you have the catalytic converter replaced, make sure you keep the old one. You can recycle it and recover some of your money. I recently had a converter replaced with a universal type converter for a total cost of $150 parts and labor. I sold the used factory converter at a scrap metal place for $195. Good luck and have a Merry Christmas.
The engine will run rough and lose power. It will gradually get worse and it will begin to stall when the vehicle is at a stop. Once it is very clogged the exhaust manifold, exhaust pipe and pre-cat or collector will glow bright orange soon after you start the car. **Please rate me on this answer.**
if you can, take a picture of the hose and post it here. generally if you are replacing the hoses you will need something like silicone type hoses and if the hoses are under pressure you have to make sure they are rated to handle it.
