SOURCE: bad catalytic converter?
Log onto www.partstrain.com. I believe they have Catalytic converters for your pathfinder for under $200.00, there OEM direct fit which means no cutting other then removing the old bolts.
If it is the Catalytic converter you can always buy it from on line and have a muffler shop install it like speedy or midas. Make sure you ask for stainless bolts and nuts.
Before you go through all the trouble, re check the DTC codes. Most of the time it's the O2 sensors that go bad and i question the garage charging you so much for the replacement of a catalytic converter.
Good luck and keep me posted.

SOURCE: torque converter for ford f-150
Torque converters are cheap, around $100 because they can easily be rebuilt. But they almost never go bad, because they only have one bearing, and it is always bathed in oil.
So why do you think you even need one?
It bolts to the drive plate, which is like a light flywheel replacement, so that the starter has a ring gear to engage. So it it not part of the transmission at all, and is between the transmission and engine. If it is leaking, it is not hard to replace the seals and bushings once you take the transmission out.

Testimonial: "Thank you."
It may be as simple as a short in the wire or a bad TCC solenoid that needs to be replaced. The most would be just under $200.00 with parts and labor with transmission fluid and filter replaced.
If your lucky, you may find where the issue is if it's a wire that is shorting out. Inspect your TCC switch on your brake peddle and it may just need to be readjusted. The other place would be a short to the transmission harness where is connects to the transmission. Once all electrical connections have been inspected, then your going to have to move on to having a transmission shop replace the TCC solenoid replaced.
TCC always locked: TCC apply solenoid circuit shorted to ground, TCC solenoid blockage (easy fix in pan), or TC broken (must remove trans and replace TC).
Thank you for using fixya and most common would be a ground problem, good luck and hope it's will cost you nothing if you find it.
