Hey all! I had Autozone pull this code for me and I've just scheduled an appointment with the dealer to have this looked at. I've done my research and am hoping the problem is the catalytic converter. If I'm not mistaken, I believe cat converters are covered up to 8 years/80000 miles due to a federal requirement. I have a 2000 GT and am currently at 58,700. No aftermarket exhaust, but I do have an Injen Short Ram
. I have also just recently cleaned my MAF sensor and installed a new pre-cat 02 sensor due to a p0171 CEL previously.
My question is, if the problem is the converter and the dealer says they can replace this for free, would they still charge me for finding what the problem was, or is this covered as well? Should I have to pay, what is the usual rate for dealers to inspect a problem like this?
thanks in advance
