i would think the exhaust pipe or the catalist is causing all the aa codes also
Tim I am not a Mechanic. I need an economical cost analysys:
there a 4 posible problems:
i think 2
either a bad pipe or catalist
you need to check the pipe first,,,,it would be good if it is damaged
this is the cheapest fix
if it is the converter
it only takes around 1/2kour to replace,,,but
Ok 2 Problems. I am not the one going to do the work:
the converter is high
I just need a cost analysys so the mechanic does not take advantage.
this is what im getting to
and you may want to sit down
if it is the pipe....you may get by with around $200+/-
if it is the converter....you are looking at around $60+/- labor
the converter will cost around $1200+/-
you can by an aftermarket for around $600+/-..but,,sometimes these dont work
are you there?
