You should be fine just as long as the replacement part meets emissions standards. You don't actually need one if you don't have to pass an inspection.

2002 mazda tribute how many converters?


Ford Escape and Mazda Tribute same engine same problem check out Catalytic Converter problems on both in the long run will have to replace all 3 of the converters may blow a hole in the EGR valve too. Go for after market parts will save you money and not going thru a dealership will help but expect to pay close tto $1,800 mostly due to labor to replace these parts. If you have a check engine light try going to Auto parts store and use their computer to check out code. Not getting this fixed will leave you stranded when it goes. Vehicle will suddenly bogg down and trust me when your doing 60 mph on the hwy. and suddenly this happens to you not a good feeling. Hope this helps.

My 1985 Volvo GL station wagon won't pass smog the smog inspector said its probably the catalytic converter. How much on average does that cost to replace?


Since you did not post the engine size of your GL

My answer is base on a

GL L4 2.3 Liter L4 2.3 Liter engine.


The catalytic converter will cost you $181 if your car has California Emission system.

$248 for Fed. emission system.

Gaskets will cost you under $25

Look at the sticker under the hood or the inner fender for more information.

Labor is under 2 hours.

Shop around will save you money.

Hello!
I've only got a small portion of your problem up to started back up with a???
I am guessing Catalytic Converter failure? if this collapses or blocks up it restricts the exhaust gasses causing far too much back pressure sometimes resulting in backfiring and really poor performance.
Hope this FixYaZ problem!
Good Luck,
