Catalytic converter

I have a 93 jeep wrangler yj and I was just wondering how much it would cost to replace the cat? Labor and all. And also how do catalytic converters go bad? Cause mine just all if a sudden went out and I lost power in my jeep.

Call some exhaust shops in your area. Pick one. Not being rude, just making a suggestion.

Thanks but I just want a general estimate? Cheap or high?

Catalytic converter

$10,000,000 does sound kinda high for a catalytic converter.

Running cheap gas threw any vehicle will distroy cats. Little side street staions put additives in the gas and when it burns it destroys them. I always buy gas from places like shell or Hess or big name places like that. The big name company's arnt allowed to add in some additives in there gas that cheap gas stations put in. There's probley more info on line somewhere.

Also not feeding your cat will kill it. Meow

Do it yourself and it's free. I didn't want to deal with rusted bolts so it cost me $100 to have a cat and cat back system installed.

Your best source of info would be local shops. Call them up and ask them.

You can find cats for all kinds of prices obviously, but for your application it ought be somewhere around 80 bucks-ish. A muffler shop ought to put it in for around 35 bucks or so, or you might look for a cat with clamp ends on both sides and install it yourself with just cutting the exhaust pipe to length and wrassling the cat into place and installing the clamps. Realistically about a buck and a quarter to a buck and a half $135.00-$150.00

Are you much adept at mechanical stuff? It's not hard really. One point to remember....... if you do it yourself, wear safety glasses, all kinds of crap will be falling off stuff into your eyes.

If you want, I have an extra cat I bought new and never installed. It's a magnaflow. I was going to put it on a few months ago but ended up jumping right into the V8 install parts list, so now I'm not going to bother. I paid $110 + shipping. Will ship it to you for $80 (including shipping).
