3 front coils? Ignition coils? If the engine had a miss for a long time the excess fuel can ruin a catalytic converter.

I highly doubt it, unless they had to remove parts of the exhaust to get to the coils but it wouldn't hurt the converter, it may have caused a rusty part of the exhaust to break

I was told the PCM, coil pack and the catalytic converter in my 05 Escape was bad. I was quoted nearly $4k for the repair and the car is barely worth $6k? Any suggestions?


Absurd
Without labor your looking at a couple
hundred on exhaust and a hundred for coil
The pcm --doesn't sound right

I'am going to look on NAPA and get back to you

Sounds like a problem with your catalytic converter or possibly just an o2 sensor. If it is a cat problem I would make sure to have them address it b4 your warranty is up as they are typically very expensive!

2005 Ford Focus flex pipe repair


Advance auto and auto zone sell just the flex pipe. You will need to have someone cut the old one out and weld the new one in. costs about $20 for part vs $300 for pipew/catalitic converter attached.

Cut u cut the catalytic converters off the manifold and just replace the catalytic converter by cutting and welding it back together


You can cut them off and weld them back on. You don't have to buy a new exhaust system if that's what you're referring to. Here the ford dealer wanted $2000 to replace mine, but we had aftermarkets put on at a local shop for $300.

Is it true that ford escape's catalytic converter can only be replace by dealers and cant find aftermarket and how many catalytic converter escape has?


no a dealer is not the only place that replaces these; you can do it yourself and there should be 2 of them. most of them are replaced with aftermarket ones. go to a muffler shop and they will replace them for you and you can check at an Autozone or Napa for the catalytic converters

We took our pick-up to the local Ford Dealership to find out why it was running so rough,especially when it was sitting still. It took 3-trips to the Ford House in one week before they could tell me...


The Ford guys you are going to are absolute morons. The engine light likely indicates misfire(s) codes. maybe catalyst inefficiency, but that would be due to the misfiring. Take it to a decent shop that has been in your area for a long time, tell them to tune it up and diagnose it properly. Ford trucks have a very common problem with bad coil packs and coil pack extensions. I can almost promise you this is your problem. Mention coil packs to the mechanic just to twig his memory and he can check his scanner for which ones are suspect.
