2004 Toyota Solara Q&A
2004 Toyota Solara Question: catalytic converter
Anything can go wrong at any time in cars. I always recommend having walking shoes in the trunk. I'm joking, but serious at the same time. Your catalytic converter failed, it could be simply a defective catalyst or it could have been caused by something else, like contaminated fuel or coolant getting into the exhaust stream. More likely, the cat simply failed. I hope that Toyota stepped up and replaced the cat and diagnosed the car to prevent future failures. - Superbob
When I look for a new catalytic converter for this car I see some say FRONT with a picture of the manifold and converter and other sites...
I had a 420 code come up and failed my smog. Should I replace the catalytic converter or check the O2 sensors or check if I need flash the computer? Thanks,
my check engine light came on. mechanic used machine to see what the code was. came up P420. he said i needed to get a toyota cat, but it was like $1000, so i bought a magnaflow from autozone for 2...
my check engine light was on,so I took car to auto zone and was took it needed the catalitic converter. how much should that cost me?
Car has 240k miles and has fouled a new catalytic converter, sometimes gives a blue smoke on start-up.
