Research on Catalytic Converter for Subaru Forester

The catalytic converter makes sure you have clean emissions, but if it goes bad, your vehicle will not run as it once did. Environmental regulations strictly enforce the acceptable levels of pollutants that come from each automobile in the United States. The cat is designed to enable each vehicle to comply with these rules. Many things can go wrong with the part. If the catalytic converter goes bad, then you will need substantial work on your exhaust system, but fortunately you can save on the part by shopping online.

What Is the Catalytic Converter?

Designed to catalyze an oxidation and reduction reaction, the catalytic converter takes in exhaust gases such as hydrocarbons and carbon monoxide. The exhaust is often reduced to carbon dioxide and water, thanks to oxides that enable the unit to store oxygen. A washcoat spreads the catalysts over a large area. The part has a ceramic monolith at its core, which has a honeycomb structure that all the exhaust air passes through. Catalysts for the reaction are needed for the device to work, and include palladium, rhodium, platinum, and a mix of other precious metals. Your 2002 Subaru Forester catalytic converter, for example, requires a temperature of 800F to generate the required reaction of exhaust gases. It is often integrated into the exhaust manifold behind the engine.

Signs Your Catalytic Converter Is Going Bad

If your Subaru Forester catalytic converter check engine light goes on, that can be indicative of a failing catalytic converter. Although not directly responsible for engine function, a bad cat can generate back pressure that will impact the engine's ability to breath. The engine could stall or your vehicle may feel jerky, and acceleration power may be reduced. If the cat overheats, then the engine can misfire. Raw fuel can actually get into the part, ignite, and cause catalyst elements to melt. If the catalytic converter fails, your fuel economy will go down, significantly increasing the cost of gassing up your SUV. There are various reasons a cat can fail; one is a fuel system error that can lead to vapors entering the device.

What You'll Pay for a Catalytic Converter

Unless you find a Subaru Forester catalytic converter for sale, the price of replacing the unit can be high. A lot of work is involved to remove the old one and install a new catalytic converter. Your mechanic might charge anywhere from $425 to $1,260 in a 2002 vehicle. It could cost over $1,200 for a Subaru Forester exhaust catalytic converter in a 2014 model with a 2.5L 4 cylinder turbo engine as well. You have some control over how much the parts are by going to PartsGeek.com, where all of our automotive parts and accessories are sold exclusively via the Internet. The reduced overhead enables us to pass on the savings, which customers have come to appreciate. It's now possible to cut down on some of the expense of doing important repairs to your automobile, and have more cash on hand to enjoy once normal performance is restored.

Outlet flange did not square up with existing exhaust. Luckily the gasket seal design was forgiving enough to allow it to seal. Other than that good quality. Product comes with no heat shields and existing do not fit. I don't think they are necessary. - Shawn
