If your Subaru Outback has been experiencing repeatedly loss of power, increased emission levels, and frequent rattling, then there must be something wrong with your catalytic converter. You cannot sacrifice the driving quality offered to you by your reliable all-wheel drive; all you need to do is replace your converter to stop these symptoms from getting worse. Keeping a worn-out catalytic converter also contributes to air pollution, so you really have to buy a replacement kit. Afterwards, all you need to do is observe proper handling of your vehicle and do routine checkups on your SUV's other components to keep them in tip-top shape.

Frequently Asked Questions

Ask APW
  • For Subaru Outback owners residing in California, what are the main considerations when buying aftermarket catalytic converters?
    Answer: For California residents, beware of buying aftermarket parts that are not certified by the Air Resources Board of California. The state has strict regulations when it comes to meeting the vehicle emission control requirements. There are only selected brands that passed the state's standards, so it is important to check if the aftermarket parts are legal for use within the state's jurisdiction by referring to the board's website.
  • If one of the two catalytic converters of a Subaru Outback fails, should the whole unit be replaced?
    Answer: First off, it is important to determine if the catalytic converter (or cat) is really worn out or still repairable. A bad cat is confirmed by noting oxygen codes. Unless this test is done, it's hard to conclude if the cat has failed. One of the Subaru Outback catalytic converter problems is clogging. If in case a trained technician diagnosed that one of the cats failed and needs to be replaced, then it would require a whole unit replacement, except if there is an available universal-fit cat sold individually. Also, check the warranty of the cats to avoid paying extra for a replacement kit.
  • If the catalytic converter installed in a Subaru Outback is removed, will this improve the truck's performance?
    Answer: Despite the positive environmental contributions of using catalytic converters, some drivers remove or disable theirs thinking that it can improve the vehicle performance and fuel economy. While this is somehow true, as converters restrict the flow of exhaust contributing to poor performance; without retuning, there will be no performance improvement. Adding to that, it is illegal in several states to remove or disable the cats as it will contribute to toxic emissions. Vehicles without cats generally fail in emission testing and inspections.
