There are several makers of aftermarket 'universal' cats that start at around $60-70 US.
The disadvantage is the 'universal' part; they usually universally don't fit and required adaptors.
Since they all work the same way, I wouldn't be concerned about function.
About any 'chain' auto parts store should be able to cross your Celica to the closest one available.
Autozone, Advanced Auto and NAPA all have online websites and I would try there first.

What does code PO431 mean on 03 Kia XL. My check engine light is on. Auto zone said I needed to replace Catalytic Converter(s). Does anyone know how many Catalytic Converters are on it?

code p 0431 refers to warm up catalytic converter, bank 2--efficiency below threshold === causes ---cat converter---wiring---HO2S sensor 2
it should be a v6 engine as it has 2 banks , bank 2 is the one closest to the grill.
there should be 2 cat converters ( one for each bank)
from the suggested causes , I suspect that the HO2S sensor is not performing properly and is not providing the correct mixture to the cat converter to make it operate properly
if you bump the cat converter with the hand and it rattles , it will need replacing and autozone would be right
However I am always of the opinion that you should seek other advice from an accredited exhaust specialist shop and get a quote as cat converters are not cheap

How do you unstop a 2005 celica catalytic converter?

They cannot be unplugged. The metal in the unit gets hot and becomes brittle and loose. The outcome is that they don't work or they become plugged. You may want to see if you can get the dealer to replace it for free because they are expensive and also are supposed to last and be covered for 10 years.

Air fuel mixture may be it. Also it could be a bad catalytic converter. Also the timing may be the culprit.

If your mechanic is right about catalytic converter at fault then you can ask him to just remove those for a while and check if your car works fine. Catalytic converter are there just to reduce pollution and I don't recommend to drive without them but for checking you can do that for a while.

92 celica gt won't pass inspection, is it hard to replace and what would it cost me??? They say its the cat converter.

Catalytic converters can cost $50 to $500 to replace depending on what kind of car. They are expensive because they can contain gold, platinum, and other precious metals. My buddy gets $80-100 just for scrap iron ones! They can be very hard for a person with out the right tools to replace because they are welded in or the bolts rust up. Get quotes from at least 3 muffler shops on replacement. One of them may know of a generic cat that may get your toyota to pass, also a tune up (spark plugs, wires, and oil change) will make a difference. Good luck.

My "service engine soon" light

If that # does mean its the catalytic converter, you dont have to go to the dealer for it. Any mufler shop can do it or you can price it out at a parts store & get someone to put it in for you. Nissan parts are more expensive than most makes so if you can, go with aftermarket.

I hadnt heard of a universal catalytic converter being illegal to install besides they do sell them. Check with autozone i have bought many from them tell them you want a universal catalytic converter for your vehicle the price may surprise you it should be alot cheaper than what you just quoted.
