Engine Performance problem
2000 Nissan Maxima 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 84000 miles
My Nissan needs a catalytic converter. I was told by a local shop that the code showing up on the computer just means it's not working as efficiently as it's supposed to so it needs to be fixed. Problem is, it comes in 3 parts so I don 't know which one to replace. I don't have a lot of money so I am hoping this is something that can be fixed at home. Is there a way to tell which part needs to be replaced? Or do they all have to be done? Also, do the parts have to be genuine Nissan or can I put another brand of converter on it? The state I live in won't register a vehicle without an inspection so this has to be done so it will pass the emmissions test.
have the same problem?
