Research on Catalytic Converter for Subaru Outback

The catalytic converter greatly improves the quality of your vehicle's emissions. Exhaust gas can be converted from toxic compounds to safer carbon dioxide and water. It does this by combining oxygen with carbon monoxide. This oxidation and reduction reaction is known as a redox reaction. Catalytic converters can be used in a gasoline or diesel internal combustion engine. A malfunctioning unit will not only cause your vehicle to pollute the environment, but also not run properly.

History of the Automotive Catalytic Converter

The catalytic converter was introduced into gasoline-powered vehicles in 1975, to comply with emissions regulations by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. It was invented by a French mechanical engineer. The first ones were used in smoke stacks, but research began for gasoline engines in the 1950s. Additional engineers went on board with development. Catalytic converters were mass produced by 1973, and a version for gas turbines was developed in the early 1970s as well, leading to many future versions, including the 2001 Subaru Outback catalytic converter.

To work efficiently, the catalytic converter must be subject to 800F temperatures. The first ones were closer to engines, but that caused many issues. Engineers then placed them a third of the way back, underneath the car. Integrated devices were built into exhaust manifolds. Introduced in the 1990s, these became the standard design and were much more efficient.

Recognizing a Catalytic Converter Problem

You'll know if your 2005 Subaru Outback catalytic converter is failing if the engine frequently misfires. That's because of raw fuel entering the device, causing it to overheat. Reduction in engine performance, stalling, decreased fuel economy, and a detection of higher carbon emissions from the exhaust are also signs. Also, you might not get the same response you're used to when stepping on the accelerator, or there might be jerky motions in the car.

How Much Is a Catalytic Converter?

The exact cost of replacing the part depends on the car and your location. A complete replacement is an extensive job, so you're going to pay significantly more than the cost of the part. That can be $250 or more for labor alone. For a 2001 Subaru Outback, it can cost anywhere from $698 to $1,453 to replace the front catalytic converter. Replacing the rear one costs around the same, although maybe a few dollars less. These figures are identical to replacing the 2004 Subaru Outback catalytic converter, and for earlier models. Subaru Outback catalytic converter replacement will cost you no matter what, but believe it or not, there are ways to save. You can do so by shopping around. Try narrowing down your search to PartsGeek.com, and experience the most savings, because our automotive parts and accessories are sold only via the Internet.
