The average cost to replace a Dodge Ram 1500 catalytic converter is $1,650. The best way to make sure your new converter lasts for the life of your vehicle – apart from routine engine maintenance – is breaking in the new converter. Most of the time your mechanic will do this for you, but if not, here’s how:
  • Start your engine and let it idle for five minutes
  • Increase your engine speed to 2,500 rpm and hold it there for two minutes
  • Let the engine cool down
