Asked by Aug 06, 2015 at 09:47 PM about the 2006 Chrysler Pacifica Base AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Auto shop says they need $800  to replace catalytic converter.  How can I clean the
converter instead of replacing it.  Car has 149000 miles

Usually when a shop says it needs replaced, it needs replaced due to the output of the catalyst is too high to pass emission standards. I would try an exhaust shop for a replacement price, the one they gave you is too high.

Try or the muffler shop for a universal converter. It'll be much cheaper. Also, be sure that the correct replacement converter is installed. If your Pacifica has California emissions you must put a C.A.R.B. (California Air Resource Board) compliant converter back on or the check engine light and converter trouble code will return right away. HTH. -Jim
