CATALYTIC CONVERTER

1998 Honda Accord • 4 cylinder FWD Automatic • 130,000 miles

My 1998 Honda Accord EX check engine light went on. Was diagnosed by Honda dealer with P0420 code for catalytic converter. They also told me there was an oil leak around a CV boot and another leak in the power steering drum. Total repair estimate is $1400. Car seems to run ok but I have noticed what appears to be some very small "oil or anti-freeze leak" on the garage floor underneath my car. Can you advise?

Anti-freeze is not oil based so if you flush the stain on the floor you would be able to distinguish between oil or anti-freeze.

CV boots should have grease leaking and not oil.

Do you mean the power steering rack is leaking?
