Q: can i put my catalytic converter from my 2000 dodge caravan on my 2002 town and country van

asked by on

my catalytic converter went out
My car has an automatic transmission.

If it fits you can use it, but if following the letter of the law, it is not legal to use a used converter. This is where you may have a hard time finding a business to replace the parts for you. The fine can be $10000 per incident.
