How to Avoid the High Cost of Catalytic Converter Replacement and Repair!
Some of our Naperville area customers ask us when they need to replace their catalytic converter.
In fact, catalytic converters have a federally mandated 8 year 80 thousand mile warranty through your vehicle manufacturer, so should your vehicle fall into that time/mileage interval, you may not need to pay for the repair or replacement out of pocket at all.
What does a Catalytic Converter replacement cost?
Unfortunately, if your catalytic converter is not covered under warranty, repairs and replacement can be very costly. To assure you are getting the most life out of your catalytic converter you should follow a few simple steps.
- . Don’t ignore check engine lights. This is an indicator that something is not operating properly with your vehicle. Should the light start flashing, that is an indicator that something is malfunctioning that could potentially cause damage to your catalytic converter.
- Perform routine scheduled maintenance such as tune ups and inspections. A properly running engine will make sure you get the most out of your catalytic converter.
There really is no way of telling that your catalytic converter has gone bad without proper diagnostic equipment.
One sign that your catalytic converter has gone bad is the check engine light. It is best to take it to a trained professional with the proper diagnostic equipment who can let you know if you need a new catalytic converter, or if you have something as simple as a loose gas cap causing the light to turn on.
