My catalytic converter was stolen a few days ago. with no damage to sensors.
My neighbor says I can use an aftermarket cat. con. to replace it myself, but will need to fabricate some flanges.
My mechanic says I must use a true Toyota cat. con. as others are illegal and won't work long term and won't pass smog test.
Can anyone tell me what's what with replacing one?


  • i need two new cats for my 95 taco, at least that's what i hear.
  • i've got a 95 taco with 275k miles.
    Check engine light came on today mechanic says i need a new cat on the number one bank, though he recomends i replace both.
    Which side is bank one?
    are there really two?
    anybody recomend a good cat legal in Calif.?
