Question about 2000 Honda Civic
When i had my car inspected last year, they told me the catalytic converter was bad or something and needed to be replaced before it would pass this year. Managed to get to computers to reset and that one didnt come up last year and it passed.. Well anyways, I have a friend who works on cars and what not and said there was a computer he could bring from work to find out if it is the cat converter or another part that is only about $60. Anyone know what this part would be? And also, what is the cheapest way of going about this? Any tips or tricks to getting it fixed?
The best way is to replace the cat, it could be the 02 sensor but would suggest you replace the cat from a aftermarket car parts store, they will coast about $80.00 tops and I would replace the 02 sensor as well after 8 years the 02 sensors get what is called lazy 02 syndrome and does not cycle fast enough to keep up with the changing fuel needs of the computer. If you replace the 02 sensor you will get better fuel mileage and will not risk plugging up the cat in the near future, And if you had any missing in the engine you have damaged the cat so replace it so you don't have to much back pressure, you can check the cat with a temp probe to see if it is functioning or not to be sure, but for a total of $100.00 bucks you will save yourself time and effort in the years to come, and itf the cat plugs up it won't run so change them both. hope this helps.
