today I had brought my accent for check up what the reason for my car kept on jerking when I drove 80km/h or 110km/h......the computer finally showed that my car's catalysts got error and the foreman said mayb it already stucked....but they said if need to change it cost more than RM2k.....oh my god......why that was so EXPENSIVE to fix the Accent?
so I would like to know does it other ways can let me settle my problem so I needn't to spend that costly.....thanks

The materials used in the catalyst convertor aren't cheap either. It's raw precious material.

kamloon.... the only way for you to save + rm 2k is by......Removing the Catalytic Converter itself.
There will be no harm to the engine of your car.
