Catalytic converter

Recommended Posts

The exhaust spit out a large amount of fiberglas like material and the mechanic says I need 2 new catalytic converters costing about 1200K with oxygen sensors if needed.  I have a 2010 Connect with 51K on it.  He also said that it may still be covered for 10 years or 100K.  Is any of this true?

I always thought federal emissions were 8 years and 80k.

Your 2010 model year may be out of warranty.

 

But ask if an "after warranty adjustment" can be applied.

  • You will not be charged for diagnosis, repair, replacement, or adjustment of parts containing an emissions-related defect.

Have you had a Trouble code?  I would have your tech  do a scan, Check the O2 sensors to see if they are responding with the correct voltage. The converters  might be fine, and the fibreglass might be from the resonator.
