    Catalytic Converter

    Hello, All!

    I'm new here and I figured this is an excellent place to get answers.

    I was at a laundry mat and my catalytic converter was stolen. cleanly cut in between the manifold and the first muffler, before the O2 sensor. They are worth $100 in scrap yards.

    I had a straight pipe put on until I'm able to get it replaced. Other than emmisions issues, will there be any significant impact to my sensors or engine?

    Nope. Worst it will do is set a cat inefficiency code.

    Re: Catalytic Converter

    Ok, I thought maybe the O2 sensor reading would cause a malfunction or maybe alter the fuel injectors or something of that nature because of the exhaust not being filtered(??). the sevice engine light came on after driving around on a sunday looking for an open muffler shop....and still hasn't went off.....

    Thanks for your insight!!!
