Your vehicle has 2 catalytic convertors. The replacement used should be one made expressly for your vehicle. Cahoots told you that a convertor is defective? You may only need an O2 sensor.

I have noticed when imtrying to speed up the car will putt and will flash the check engine light comes on I am not getting good gas mileage


If the check engine light is flashing , that means that a catalytic converter damaging event is happening . You have a misfire . It's time to take your vehicle to the repair shop before you wreck the catalytic converter . A new one can cost up $800.00 .
Best Answer: A flashing MIL, means there is a 'class A' misfire that is present. This type of misfire WILL ruin the catalytic converter(s), if the problem isn't fixed in a timely manner.

When replacing your converters you can eleminate the second converter, shops in different states have different rules that may prevent them from losing the 2nd converter but you as an end user can but an aftermarket converter that will fit your car and install it yourself. This will require a sawzall or a good hacksaw to remove the old units so as to leave enough pipe coming down from the exhaust manifolds for the new converter to clamp on. Once the new converters are installed any muffler shop can hook up the rest of your system.

Catalytic Converter Replacement Repair Cost


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.

Took my 2003 Toyota 4runner in because engine light was coming on intermittently. That has happened before. Also complained of sulpher smell twice. the first time car was 6moths old...they said changed...


No it is not under emissions warranty the year is what is the factor, it is 7 years or 70,000 mile whichever comes first. You need the check engine fault code read and that fixed first, it is most likely the cause of the smell from the catalytic converter which is caused by a overly rich fuel air mixture. The fact you smelled the sulfur indicates the Cat is working. I was a certified repair and inspection technician for the Calif smog control program for 35 years.

Camshaft sensor and catalytic converter


Sometimes one problem causes many more. The camshaft sensor should be easy to access. Go to a good parts store and have a look at the diagram for part location. You may not need a Catalytic converter yet.

If the camshaft sensor went crazy you will not fire on all cylinders. Therefore the exhaust mixture will be rich and can damage the Catalytic converter. But when the repairs are made to the Camshaft sensor, give it some time to run correctly and see if the Catalytic converter clears up.

As with any repair, disconnect the NEG battery cable for 10 minutes to clear the old codes. Then use the car and let the car go for 300 miles or so to purge the Catalytic converter of excess fumes. Then if you need a newer Catalytic converter its almost like installing a muffler. You may need a special socket to change out O2 sensors from old to new.

Costs vary, Sensors are $20 to $50. Catalytics can be expensive, but Salvage yards have them used.
