I have 1995 Ford windstar, 3.8l 6v SFI
My catalytic converter is plugged and needs to be replaced. I live in rural California.
Dealer and mechanics wants close to $2000 for new converter. Because I live in CA. Eastern models are $302-358
What is the difference in CA/vs/ rest of the world converters? Can I just buy one that will fit my van - even if is not " California model" ? Where I live we are not required to do smog checks at all
(only when changing ownership)
My van is old and I do not see spending additional $2000 but would like to fix it to use 2-3 more months before I can buy new car.
Here is info I found on www. Partstrain. Com
Catalytic Converter Catco $302.95
1995 Ford Windstar
Fits Engine – Chassis:
3.8L, 6 Cylinder — Windstar
Direct Fit, Original Replacement Catalytic Converter, Complete, Stainless Steel Piping
Except California Models
IF I BUY THIS WOULD IT FIT MY VAN?
Please help with suggestion.
