I have a 2001 Toyota Rav4, 2WD/front wheel drive, manual with 100,000 miles.
My check engine light came on, and I was told that I need to replace my catalytic converter and it would cost $1700. Is this true? Will it really cost that much? I’m a girl in my twenties and am clueless.
Can I run on a bad catalytic converter and not hurt anything (besides the environment)? Or is this something I can run on for two months and save up the money for the repair? As it stands my clutch is slipping so I’m having that replaced for $750, so I’m hoping I can hold off on the other repair, or that maybe the quick lube place was trying to rip me off….
I had them do an emissions flush, and my O2 sensors were replaced…
Thanks for the help!
