Question about 2005 Toyota Highlander
The VSC, Trac and check engine lights were on in my wife's 2005 Highlander, and when I took it in, it got a P0420 code and was quoted $495 in parts and $150 labor to replace the "Bank 1 Rear Catalytic Converter" - wondering if this is a reasonable price for this job in California. Thank you
Code p0420 refers to catalytic converter system bank 1 --efficiency below threshold ===causes -- catalytic converter ---wiring---HO2S 2 sensor
The cheapest part to replace is the HO22S sensor so I would do that first. Bump the cat converter soundly with the heal of your hand and if it rattles it needs replacing as it will be cracked internally. Dismiss any tinny rattle as that will be the heat shield loose
The time taken to replace both in an accredited shop will be less than 1 hour so it may pay to shop around and compare prices on the converter and labour costs.
