I have a 200 sx nissan and the manifold catalytic converter combo will cost me $1300. to replace in CA. trying to find out if I should expect more expensive repairs to come soon (i.e. motor, trans, velocity joints etc.) It's been a great car but with nearly 200,00 miles on it, I am wondering if its worth the repair price or it time to dump it?

I would buy the converter,only if you really need one,and install yourself.
It should be about half the price you quoted or less. Buy at auto parts store.
You can not not buy another car for the price of a new converter!!

Convertor turns red enigen runs rough 2004 nissian max

Your catalytic converter is exactly what it says it is. It converts undesirable exhaust gases into acceptable ones by using a catalyst to combine the unburnt hydrocarbons with a second element. It uses the heat of your exhaust to do this. However, as the process goes on, the converter absorbs more and more impurities but expels nothing except what is left in your exhaust. This means your catalytic converter finally fills up. After 10 years, it sounds like your converter has reached the end of its life and is full. Hence exhaust gases are having trouble passing through it. It is now being overheated by the exhaust gas that cant flow freely. This is also creating back pressure in your exhaust manifold thus interfering with your engine's performance. You have to replace the catalytic converter. Probable cost about $400 to $500.

Diagram of o2 sensor location on a 93 Nissan d21

There really is no diagram.. The upstream O2 is in the exhaust manifold or pipe before the catalytic converter and the downstream O2 (if equipped) is after the catalytic converter in the Catalytic converter itself or the pipe just after the Catalytic converter.

Parts and labor catalytic converter 2011 Chevy equinox

There is a federal warranty of 5 years on all catalytic converters. It should not cost you anything to have it replaced. You stated that it was a 2007 and then a 2011, which year is it? If it is a 2007, you are almost outside of the federal warranty.

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.

I am in dire need of replacing the exhaust manifold on a 1995 Nissan Pathfinder. I'm not quit sure I have the money to pay someone or trust them to do the job. If at all possible I would like to do it...

By the time you buy the tools needed for the job, you will have spent nearly as much as what they want for labor. It's not an easy job, even for an experienced mechanic. Unless it's something you really want to do, I would advise letting the repair shop handle it. Shop around a little for the best price. Stay away from dealerships. Any auto repair shop or decent muffler shop should be able to handle the job. If you have the catalytic converter replaced, make sure you keep the old one. You can recycle it and recover some of your money. I recently had a converter replaced with a universal type converter for a total cost of $150 parts and labor. I sold the used factory converter at a scrap metal place for $195. Good luck and have a Merry Christmas.

If it accelerates good, going up a hill, and you don't feel it holding back, or sluggish when trying to accelerate, I'd certainly get a second opinion. What code were/are you getting?

Leak in Exhaust Manifold after catalytic converter replacement.

it depends if they took the manifold off to do the cat converter job
If they did it is their repair cost as the job was not completed properly
if that was not necessary then they may have broken the flex bit just from the manifold
