Mazda Repair Questions? Ask Mechanics for Answers ASAP
Hello and thank you for your question,As long as the engine starts and runs fine and you are not feeling any lack of power you are okay to keep driving it. There a very good chance you can get away with driving it till your ready to get rid of it. A failing converter will usually not fail all at once and in most cases you will begin to notice a loss of power under load as it begins to restrict. Its not likely going to fail at once and leave you walking.
