catalytic converter rattling internally


Recommended Posts

Hi Gang,

For the past couple years my catalytic converter has always rattled a little especially at start up and more so when the engines cold, It's been getting a little worse lately. My brother is suggesting to cut it out and just go with a straight pipe splice.

can anyone tell me why I shouldn't do that?  

Thanks

If you have vehicle emission inspection in your state, you will not be able to pass.

That is the most pressing reason, might I also suggest that it is against the law.

Thanks Hemi, I hope you've been well, in our state over twenty years is not required, but I also dont want to be adding pollutants to the environment knowingly. 

Any suggestions on a replacement? I will check Rock Auto.

RockAuto.com is a good place to look, there are others as well, just search 'catalytic converter'
