catalytic converter 1.4

2 posts in this topic

Hi guys, This has just started happening over the last week, when i fire my car up i can hear a rattle from underneath the car (just under the front seats).

My car has been smelling of egg for the past few months, i know its something to do with the catalytic converter, i was wondering how much it is likely to cost me to fix.

Also i have noticed a small loss of power & when i accelerate it makes a loud blowing noise.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks

from what you say it does sound like the cat. just had mine replaced the other week because of the same problem. as its got to be a type approved cat it will set you back between £170(what i paid) to £200.

your best bet would be to phone round local garages and independants to get some prices, avoiding kwik fit. also make sure that they are pricing it for a type approved cat.
