2001 Dodge Durango cataytic converter

Is the catalytic converter welded on or clamped on? How difficult is it to replace yourself? I have an engine light on with error saying catalytic converter is out. Could it be just the sensors and should I try that first?

My Durango has a smell and gray smoke comes out the tail pipe when I start it

Check for computer error codes with an OBDII scan tool - it'll probably tell you that the catalytic converter is failing, but it won't also tell you that your engine is probably badly worn so you're seeing oil smoke - when the catalytic gets hot enough, it fully burns off the oil smoke so you won't see it any more. Meanwhile, your oil level is probably dropping pretty fast.

Where is the catalytic converter located on a 2000 Durango 4.7L

just follow your exhaust from your engine to your muffler. The catalytic converter is between the muffler and the engine. Looks like a miniature muffler.

How to replace/remove both catalytic converters

Below are the steps needed to remove the catalytic converters. You may be able to first remove the band clamp from between the converter and the exhaust manifold, then loosen the rest of the system and to get enough clearance to slide the converter towards the front of the vehicle but you will need to first remove the clamp that holds the converter to the rest of the exhaust. Hope this helps
Both Catalytic Convertors

First you need to raise the vehicle.

Next, you need to pry the insulators from the support brackets and support the muffler and tailpipe with jackstands.

Then, loosen the the catalytic converter down pipe-to-front resonator clamps and separate the front resonator from the converter down-pipes. Carefully lay the free laying exhaust on the ground.

Right Catalytic Converter

Then, remove the down-pipe-to-transaxle bracket nut, loosen the clamp and separate the extension pipe from the converter.

Next lower the vehicle and remove the air filter and intake ducts. Disconnect the wiring harness for the O2 sensor and the remove the sensor.

Finally loosen the band clamp at the exhaust manifold and remove the converter from the engine compartment. You may need to replace these clamps after removal because you need to pry it apart and they will leak when you reinstall.

Left Catalytic Converter

Now disconnect the wiring harness for the O2 sensor and the remove the sensor.

Next remove the down-pipe-to-transaxle bracket nut

Finally loosen the band clamp at the exhaust manifold and remove the converter from the engine compartment.

If the speedometer still works,then no you don't need the speed sensor.The problem sounds more like the catalytic converter Which was a recall item on most Durangos and Dakotas for that year should be replaced for free at the dealer.
