Hyundai Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi! Welcome to JustAnswer. Thanks for coming! I'm Ron and I'll be working with you on your question today.
May I have the year, model and engine size of your vehicle?
Great! Thank-you! And are you replacing the Converter because of a Check Engine Light?
Ok. Great. Please give me one moment to type out some info for you. Sit tight one minute... I'll be right back!
Thanks for holding!
OK- When replacing a Converter, there is no need to replace both at the same time. The converter to replace will be stated by the "p-codes" that are stored in the on-board computer and read with the use of a scan-tool. Depending on that p-code... the front converter is part of the exhaust manifold and sells for around $1185. The Labor Time Guide calls for 2.2 hours to complete the job. The "under-floor" converter sells for around $544 and the Labor Time Guide calls for a little over a half-hour to replace. Labor rates vary from shop to shop, so what you pay for labor will effect the bot***** *****ne. For a job of this type, a "fair" labor rate can be anywhere from $85-$125 per hour. With that said... the more common fail converter here is the front one in the exhaust manifold.
