Good morning and happy mothers day to all the MOM'S. I have a 2002 Chevy Impala and some months ago I noticed my gas mileage wasn't as good as it used to be. The check engine light never came on.
Now this past week my check engine light came on but the car still ran ok but the gas was really leaving so I thought I May have a leak. Yesterday the car felt like it was stalling while I was driving and trying to run hot. I went to Oreillys and the guy said I didnt have any coolant in it and filled it up so that fixed the running hot issue but the check engine light remained on. So he used the machine and the code was catalytic converter.
- How difficult is it to fix this?
- Is it worth fixing or should I just trade it in?
Unfortunately it's Sunday and no one is open and I have to go to work in the A.M.
- Is it safe to drive it to work?
- How long can I drive it in this condition?
