Question about 1998 Jeep Wrangler
HI, this guide will help you with this replacement.
Step1 Lift your jeep. Unfortunately, the catalytic converter sits about midway down the length of your jeep, so lifting one end or the other will not do. Ramps are your best bet to get you within reach of the parts when working from home. Luckily, this is usually the hardest part of this repair. Step2 Be patient with the bolts, as they are often hard to remove due to size and awkward placement. You may have to drill or saw bolts to remove them. With this in mind, you should pick up new bolts, nuts and seals for your replacement project. Step3 Buy a catalytic converter specific to your jeep to avoid extra work. A generic part must be welded into the jeep, while a vehicle-specific model comes pre-welded to the proper pipes for easy bolt-on installation. Step4 Remove the 02 sensor (with an O2 wrench) before unbolting the catalytic converter. Then, you should remove the pipe connecting the sensor to the converter. Depending on your exhaust system, you may have to remove more pipes before you unbolt the converter from the muffler. Step5 Replace the old catalytic converter with a new one. This should be the easy part, as you simply bolt the new part in place. Step6 Reattach the exhaust pipes and 02 sensor, and the basic job is done. Make sure you replace any cracked or rusty pipes while you have the exhaust system apart.
