Catalytic Converter Replacement Cost
RepairPrice Estimates are based on the estimated time for the repair, labor rates charged by trained automotive professionals, and prices for quality parts.
These estimates are designed to show a range of fair prices, instead of a single price, because there is more than one part that is appropriate to use in each repair, and more than a single mechanic who is qualified to do the repair.
Each estimate is customized for your vehicle and geographic area. Estimates exclude applicable taxes, diagnostic charges and disposal fees.
Catalytic Converter Replacement Estimate (National Average)
Catalytic converters are vehicle-specific parts. We recommend using a high quality new part, which is required by emissions control programs in many states.
A failing catalytic converter can cause a vehicle to fail emissions tests and the Check Engine Light to illuminate. The exhaust might have an unusual smell.
A "restricted" catalytic converter can result in a loss of engine power.
It is very important to have the shop identify why the catalytic converter failed. Failure is almost always due to another problem, which if not resolved, will quickly ruin a new catalytic converter.
