Question about 1995 Subaru Legacy
My check engine light cannot be reset by the dealer. It is showing that my catalytic converter is bad. The first time this was diagnosed was over 80,000 miles ago. The check engine light has come on several times over the last 6-7 years, but has always been able to be reset. I have had no issues with my car and it is running well. I want to sell it though. Has anyone used a universal catalytic converter on a 1995 Subaru Legacy L wagon? Why is a catalytic converter replacement at the dealer over $1600, but I can get a catalytic converter from a parts store for $80? Is it that labor intensive to replace? Thanks
Dearship parts are high.you can buy a factory catalytic converter or universal converter cheaper at auto parts place.they basic the same parts the.dealership has same catalytic converter.they put their price and labor rate charge an hour your pocket book will be empty.i have used universal catalytic converter.had no problem with it.the only difference is universal converter body a little shorter.but has same lengh as factory.if check engine is coming on you cant turn it off .if computer showing you a code.you could have a misfire causing rich exhaust emission.that can ruin a catalytic converter have it scan.dealership charge you about $130.00 .you can have it scan at advance auto or auto zone.to see what pcm code is.it could be oxygen sensor somethinh minor.
