    Check engine light- Catalytic Converter replacement

    Hi all,

    Check engine light came on in the Evo while driving home. No other symptoms. Brought it into the dealer who diagnosed it as a bad catalytic converter. Waiting for parts for the past week or so. Should be ready today or tomorrow.

    Will be interesting to see what they think caused it to go bad. About 15,000 miles on the Evo.

    That's just ridiculous for the catalytic converter to fail so soon...if that really is what's wrong.
    You shouldn't have to stop just because the pavement does! 2012 Range Rover Evoque Pure Plus Coupe, 2009 Land Rover LR2 HSE traded, 2008 Land Rover LR2 SE traded.

    Thought so too.... I've read about 02 sensors causing cats to go bad. Perhaps a failure of another part lead to this. We'll see.......

    Got the Evo back. Service Writer had no idea why the Cat would have gone bad. Not unusual, I haven't been overly impressed with this dealer. Unfortunately, it's only about 1/2 mile from my office so it's very convenient. Although after looking underneath the car tonight to check out the new Cat, I may try the other dealer in town.

    Tech left off the exhaust hanger........ :face palm: I put it back on.

    No quality control. With a dealer like this you need to make them show you their work before you leave.

    I think if this were my vehicle, I would drop a note, or speak to, the "Service Manager", NOT the service advisor, and let them know how you got your car back.
    Not acceptable at all!

    Please give us an update when you hear back from the dealer. Will be interesting to see what they have to say.

    They didn't have anything to say of any worth. Basically said they don't know why it went bad. Don't really feel like pushing the issue at this point.
