The classic military World War 2 Jeep gets a modern and technical upgrade with a Jeep Wrangler catalytic converter. In an effort to answer the problems caused by harmful exhaust emissions, the Wrangler uses this device to clean air until it is safe enough to be expelled out of the car. Other than caring for the environment, a Jeep Wrangler catalytic converter also improves the performance and efficiency of engines. If your truck's converter fails, your vehicle becomes a nasty pollutant that you won't be able to run because of a failed emissions test. Don't give this Jeep a bad name by equipping it with a high-quality Jeep Wrangler catalytic converter.
Even if the vehicle has already had multiple owners, is the warranty for a Jeep Wrangler catalytic converter replacement still valid and covered?
Answer: A warranty that has a free Jeep Wrangler catalytic converter replacement should still be valid regardless if the vehicle is owned by the original buyer or not. As long as the Wrangler is still in its warranty period--usually an 8-year or 80,000-mile period--it should be honored.
How much would a Jeep Wrangler catalytic converter repair and replacement cost?
Answer: If the job is done by an expert mechanic, this could cost almost $300 for both parts and labor. It's best to save some money on labor and study the procedure for a DIY job that will cost around $200 for the replacement part only.
Some laws aren't too strict with cars not having a catalytic converter. What are some of the effects of removing the Jeep Wrangler catalytic converter?
Answer: A Jeep Wrangler without a catalytic converter will be noticeable because of the very unpleasant smell coming out of the pipes. If there are any benefits to this, some owners would say that the sound the Jeep Wrangler gives is rougher without it. Also, another tiny bonus would be one device less of the Jeep to worry about. However, the costs greatly outweigh the benefits especially when the biggest consequence would be an increase in exhaust emissions that hurt the environment.
What are some of the symptoms of a Jeep Wrangler catalytic converter going bad?
Answer: One of the first things that can be noticed is an unusual smell from the exhaust. An erratic shaking or rattling noise from the underside of the Jeep can be heard. There may also be significant power loss every time the accelerator is pressed. By this time, the Jeep Wrangler catalytic converter might have clogged up the system. When doing a repair, check the rest of the exhaust for any clogs, cracks, and other defects caused by the bad catalytic converter. It's best to perform the replacement along with a comprehensive exhaust repair.
