How much does a new catalytic converter cost?



The CC on my '98 Chevy p/u (4.3L) needs to be replaced. How much will this set me back?

I think around $200 but I just took mine down and busted it out with a broom stick and put it back together.

Most of the time it's the o2 sensors. Change those first. They need to be switched out every now and then anyway. If you do that and it still comes up as the cat, then get a new cat. You will need new sensors anyway.

I think the innards have rusted out. There's a terrible rattle coming from underneath my truck. I thought the heat shield had come loose from my muffler again, but I checked and it's okay. The only other think I can think of is a rusted-out cc.

thas a tough one....like the others said, a cc typically costs a couple of hundred bucks due to the platinum catalyst inside (that is why they are sometimes stolen too).....

a muffler is just a hollow shell with some baffles, so if they are close I would try that first.....

this is one of the best rackets out there. And right now around Christmas time, you have to protect your neck, especially if you drive an SUV.

Check junk yards too. They have cc's from relativly new vehicles. And, they're much cheaper.

Yep. Stole it off my Toyota 4-Runner. Then had to drive it to the shop. Loud as hell.
