Check Engine Light on due to catalytic converter
Right after I bought the car the check engine light came on so I am not sure when it actually started. I bought it second hand. i have not fixed it.

Canada and had a generic one installed for 350.00 inc. tax.labour and productand it runs just fine now / I was an un:suspecting buyer it had been a taxi in Culver city Ca. sold to a cab. in Nevada / and mills were rolled back to 50.000 miles/ I got all this info after I bought it from car fax ?? / I paid 7200.00 and spent about 3000.00 but it runs like a charm now / but get a used car checked befor you buy I never would have bought a used taxi/limo. grd069@telus.net

Just out of the 6 year / 100K certified warranty. It cost me over $1000.00 to repair. I was told this is because engine oil consumptiom burns them out.
