Answer provided by
To completely replace your Chevrolet Cavalier catalytic converter, you’re looking at around $1,400. Your catalytic converter helps cut down on your vehicle’s emissions, so if it’s not functioning properly your Cavalier won’t pass an emissions test. You’ll want to get the converter checked out as soon as possible, but it may not need a full replacement.
Before you spring for a new catalytic converter, have a mechanic check the following:
- Exhaust leaks
- Faulty oxygen sensor
- Wiring issues
- Proper engine function
A catalytic converter is generally supposed to last the life of your vehicle, so by ruling out other mechanical issues, you might find the real problem – and save yourself a big repair bill!

How do I know if I need to fix the catalytic converter on my Dodge Dakota?
I took my Dodge Dakota off-roading, and on a rough patch, I could hear something scraping along the underside of my truck. I didn’t think anything was damaged since the truck was still running okay, but now that it’s been a few weeks, my engine is running really sluggish. Is it possible I damaged something under my truck?
