Bolted right on cleared codes running as good or better than before would recommend getting new boat package the old bolts were quite rusty was scared of overheating and breaking them off
Purchased on Aug 31, 2017
Installed on a 2003 Kia Sedona. Has worked fine since installation. Great price. However at installation, the bolts that came with it weren't long enough and the weld made it difficult to get the nuts on. Bought some new bolts, and after some extra time was able to get the nuts on without doing any filing.

Hyundai Catalytic Converter Articles

Connected to the exhaust pipe beneath your car is your Hyundai catalytic converter. This is part of the exhaust system of your car, and it has an important function. The Hyundai catalytic converter contains a honeycomb shaped filter with tiny amounts of platinum, palladium, and rhodium. These metallic compounds act as catalysts for a chemical reaction that converts pollutants found in your exhaust into carbon dioxide, nitrogen, and water vapor. Your Hyundai catalytic converter is the device that allows your car to pass the emissions portion of your inspection when it is functioning properly. If the Hyundai catalytic converter is not working, your car, truck, or SUV may produce a rotten egg smell. This problem can sometimes be difficult to diagnose. However, if your muffler falls off and your engine seems extremely loud, it is likely that you will also have to replace your Hyundai catalytic converter. If you have ever had an auto mechanic quote you a price for replacing your Hyundai catalytic converter, it probably made you wonder whether the whole thing was made from platinum. You will pay less for your Hyundai catalytic converter when you order from our online catalogue. We stock Hyundai catalytic converters for your vehicle's make and model, with the convenience of delivery straight to your door and the option to place your order using our toll-free customer service number or our secure online server. A functioning Hyundai catalytic converter is essential for the safe operation of your vehicle. You may even want to consider a high-flow Hyundai catalytic converter that uses a low-restriction element to boost your power and torque while it cleans your exhaust.

Hyundai Catalytic Converter Buyer's Guide

  • Despite the reliability of Hyundai vehicles, there are some parts that simply wear out or go bad over time. One example is your Hyundai catalytic converter.  
  • Aside from sourcing components from their internal parts manufacturing network, Hyundai also relies on several third-party manufacturers to produce auto components.
  • There are two options for choosing a replacement catalytic converter for your Hyundai vehicle. These are OEM and OE replacement parts.
  • OEM catalytic converters get manufactured by Hyundai or any of their third-party suppliers. They get sold at authorized dealerships/retailers and command a higher price tag.
  • OE replacement catalytic converters get manufactured by any other aftermarket parts company that does not belong to Hyundai’s supplier network. They fit and function exactly the same, but are more widely available at a lower cost compared to OEM.
  • OE replacement catalytic converters purchased from trusted retailers such as CarParts.com have been tested for quality and were vetted by industry professionals. You can expect the same performance from these parts, if not better.

Hyundai has been gearing up to become one of the top vehicle manufacturers in North America. Its largest investment is a billion-dollar facility in Alabama that boasts innovative and advanced vehicle manufacturing technology. Despite the reliability of these vehicles, there are some parts that simply wear out or go bad over time. One example is your Hyundai catalytic converter.

Who manufactures genuine Hyundai parts?

There are several companies listed under the Hyundai Motor Group’s internal supplier network. The South Korean conglomerate acquires companies for the design and production of Hyundai and Kia automotive parts/systems. Current affiliate companies include Hyundai Mobis, Hyundai Wia, and Hyundai Dymos.

Mobis North America LLC, the official parts manufacturing arm that caters to the North American market, has facilities in Detroit and Toledo, Ohio. They also have a research and development facility in Plymouth, Michigan.

Aside from sourcing components from their internal parts manufacturing network, Hyundai also relies on several third-party manufacturers to produce auto components. Their list of OEM suppliers includes LG Chem, PPG, and BorgWarner.

OEM vs. OE replacement Hyundai catalytic converter

There are two options for a replacement catalytic converter for your Hyundai vehicle. These are OEM and OE replacement parts.

Original Equipment Manufacturer parts

OEM parts are basically any auto component manufactured by Hyundai or any of its official third-party suppliers. These catalytic converters carry the Hyundai brand, which means they command a higher price tag. They commonly appear at authorized dealerships and official retail partners.

Original Equipment Replacement parts

OE replacement parts are aftermarket parts manufactured by any other company that does not belong to Hyundai’s official chain of suppliers. Designed to be functionally equivalent to genuine parts, they fit and work like their OEM counterparts. Since they do not carry the automaker’s brand name, they offer better cost-savings while also being more widely available.

Is an OE catalytic converter replacement as good as OEM?

Definitely! OE replacement catalytic converters purchased from trusted retailers such as CarParts.com underwent testing for quality and received vetting from industry professionals. You can expect the same performance from these parts, if not better. This is because aftermarket parts companies not only follow the design of the original, they also can correct known faults with OEM parts in their own products.

Finding the right fit

Each generation and year model will have parts of varying fit and specifications. A 1995 Hyundai Elantra catalytic converter may not work on a 2010 model. In general, an OE catalytic converter replacement costs anywhere between $41 to $1091.

CarParts.com is here to help you find the right catalytic converter that won’t cost you an arm and a leg. Simply plug in your vehicle’s correct year, make, and model into the search filters on our website to narrow down the results to all compatible parts.

FAQs—Hyundai Catalytic Converter

  1. Is there a simple way to check if my Hyundai catalytic converter is clogged?

 

Yes, but you need to have an assistant. If you know how to test the carburetor of your vehicle, then it will be much easier for you to check the condition of the catalytic converter. All you need to do is to remove the air cleaner as your assistant holds a light source near the carburetor intake. This is for you to be able to glance properly over the carburetor. Once you have a good view of it, then it's time to rev the engine. Once you notice any signs of fuel vapor suspended over the carburetor, then you will be able to conclude that there really is a clog in your catalytic converter.

 

  1. My Hyundai catalytic converter overheated and I don't know the reason why. What signs should I look for and in what simple ways can I help prevent it from happening again?

 

There are two common reasons why a catalytic converter overheats. It could be due to a misfiring spark plug or a malfunctioning oxygen sensor. Spark plugs that don't fire or misfire can cause unburned fuel to enter the exhaust system, which can lead to an ignition inside the converter and result in a partial or complete meltdown of the part. It is important to ensure that your spark plugs and wires are checked regularly and replaced once they are damaged. Make sure that you get your oxygen sensor checked by an expert mechanic as well.

 

  1. I noticed that the catalytic converter of my car has not been working properly compared before. What could be the reason behind this and what can I do with it?

 

Check if the exhaust is trapped in front of the catalytic converter. If yes, then that is already a sign that your cat-con is not functioning well. This is caused by a backpressure that affects the running of your engine and stops it from working properly. When neglected, this can result in engine stalling while you're on the road.

 

Upon checking, you will see that there is an air locked in the system, which can make your car feel like there is no fuel reaching the engine when you attempt to push the accelerator. The simplest and best way that you can do to keep this from happening is by not parking your vehicle over a bed of dry grass or dry leaves. Since your catalytic converter can become extremely hot, this could cause fire.

 

  1. How would I know if my Hyundai catalytic converter is not functioning well anymore and that it needs to be replaced?

 

You need to replace your cat-con if there has been a contamination of the chemical mechanisms inside it. This is caused by the exposure to substances such as motor oil or antifreeze, which can prevent your converter from performing correctly. When this happens, you will notice an increased level of carbon emissions coming from your exhaust. You need to get it fixed in an instant before it damages your entire exhaust system or discharges an illegal amount of emissions into the atmosphere.
