Mechanic for Catalytic Converter on '97 Sable
« on: August 21, 2012, 10:25:43 AM »
I have a '97 Mercury Sable with a catalytic converter that needs replaced.  Estmiate was approx $1200.  The car is not worth spending that much $$ on it.

Can anyone recommend a place in Lincoln that will remove the cat converter?  Thanks!

I'm not sure where this is located on your exhaust but if you want to remove it you could try hollowing it out on your own if it is close to a connection piece.

Or surely someone makes a catless version you could swap.  :unsure:

I second what Light said.  If you can remove the cat with a straight section of pipe, grab a crowbar and bash its guts out.  You might have a check engine light always on, though.
