I have a 2001 Civic EX (173000 miles) in California and had got my Check Engine light inspected at a local repair shop. The car had 2 codes P1457 and P0420... the mechanic said that the Catalytic Convertor was bad and needed replacement (in addition to some 3-way purge valve in the EVAP system).. He quoted a price of $400 for the cat (parts + labor) and I asked him to repair. However, he installed an aftermarket Catalytic converter (without my knowledge) and mentioned it only when I went to take my car back as a matter-of-fact FYI statement. I didn't know the implications, but on coming home and reading up some stuff online, I realised that aftermarket catalytic convertors are not legal in California and can also cause issues with smog checks in the future. I'm not sure what my options are and what exactly should I be doing. Pls help!
I have a diagnostic done on my car and i paid the $100 to get it. Now can i take that diagnostic report to different mechanics to get the best price for my repairs?

so for a week my truck was overheaing and it was leaking coolant all over the place. I could poor it in the coolant tank and it would poor directly out of the water pump. so I replaced the water pump and the thermostat.checked all of the hoses and valves and made sure everything was secure. now that the truck is not overheating or pooring out coolant there still seems to be something leaking and it looks like water but I am not sure if it is normaml or not. Its not alot but enough to concern me now being that I just put in a new water pump where the obvious leakage was coming from the first time. oh and it doesnt apperar to be dripping from the waterpump area this time

I would let it run in the morning for 10 minutes before I take off and I get about a mile from my house I make a turn and it cuts off, summer or winter. First thing in the morning when I start it the car runs rough as if it was going to cut off, and especially if I have the air condition on. I had the car tuned plugs and wires air filter fuel filter. When it is idleling I notice the altenator gauge moving a lot so I replace the altenator.
The button on the side of the transmission lever just won't depress
Whenever I press on the gas regardless of my speed, a loud rattling sound comes from under the car, usually happens after I make a stop and start to take off again, I just replaced muffler and that didn't make a difference.
