Catalytic converter stolen, and some other part?

Asked by Sep 29, 2010 at 02:43 PM about the 1998 Pontiac Sunfire

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi,

I got a rented a carto go to Chicago couple of weeks ago and I left my 98 on their parking lot. When I came back, the car started making a lot of noise and the antifreeze reservoir was empty.

I found that someone stole my catalytic converter, so I took it to the shop to get a new one, I had to buy oxygen sensors+ converter+ labor =$350!!

Damn, now I want to see if I can fix the antifreeze licking problem myself:
It doesn't licks all the time, but sometimes it just drains like crazy! I'm sure they stole some part of the cooling system that is close to the converter, any ideas? Could it be the thermostat? I'm not good at cars, but I'm out of money for the mechanic.

not sure what your leak is but it wouldn't have anything to do with the converter.
