    This stupid check engine light kept coming back after the mechanics replacing the EGR Ports/catalytic converters and nothing seem to fix it. It is so annoying, now the car is 212000 miles and I am giving up on this issue.

    Replaced EGR valve and had to get clogged EGR ports cleaned. Also had to replace catalytic converter.

    The cat rattled when I purchased the car, allowing me to get it for pretty cheap. I drove it for a while, until the car was so down on power that I couldn't keep up with traffic. I had it repaired for about $300 at a local shop.
