    Finally took Bird in for the converters... ohh boy

    So I woke the bird up from his sleep to take over to the dealership to get my converter issue dealt with before GM drops pontiac or whatever happens and they don't want to cover the warrenty.

    The roads were pretty decent but i heard we was getting a big storm so I diden't wanna go to far. I decided to go to Patsy Lou since that's the closest pontiac dealer.

    Took her in and they was very friendly especially the I'm guessing gay guy. He was like I have never seen a hood like thissss before... did it come with it. I'm having regets already. Our boss has a car just like thisssss just not with thisss hood. I'm hoping this guy just washes cars or something. The boss comes over, yea I only got a v-6. They continue to stroke the hell out of my ego, How fast does it go blah blah. I say yea they don't make em like that anymore..... The I'm assuming gay guy said yea not witttth that hood they don't.... Ohh brother

    So I tell the guy it's still under warrenty and he mentions something about 80,000 and I'm just thinking ok cool he knows about it so I let it go. He said you know for sure it's the converters? I said yea I had it scanned already. so he says ok and takes all my info. He mentioned he might have the parts their So I go into the waiting room while they look at my car and I'm assuming scan it again etc.

    so the boss man comes out about 45 minutes later and gets me and says well it was out of warrenty back in 2003 and I asked my boss is their anything we can do for this guy and he's like GM is not covering anything they don't have too. so like old school in living color I pull the warrenty paper out of my pocket. BLAM

    He was like ohhh I diden't know anything about this.... I was like now you do.
    Well looks like your all covered. I'll get the parts ordered....

    so do they replace both or just the one that is registering bad? IS their anything I can do to have them replace both. Should I get my bad ones back?

    Awesome, good to hear theyre gonna do it . . i need to do the same thing. I doubt you can do anything to get both replaced if only one is throwing a code. Seein that they "didnt even know about the warranty" they gonna do as less as they have to. What documentation of the warranty did you use? Does it say 80,000 miles or 100,000 miles?

    My SES light came on a few weeks ago. I haven't noticed anything wrong, so I'm assuming it's my cat. I have to take it in to get scanned. My dilema is I received a letter from GM a few months ago and I'll be damned if I can't find it now. Is there a website or anything that I can go to to get a copy. I only have 34000 miles on my car so I know it's covered under the guidelines of the letter. Just can't find the SOB.

    I appreciate you sending that but it states that it is for the 2000 model year firebird. I have a 2002 so I don't think they will honor the letter. They are going to be technical since it's coming out of their pockets.

    so that's what that rattle was that i was hearing. It sounded like the y-pipe was rattling on something, but i got under there and it wasn't touching anything. boy that was an annoying sound. i was embarrassed every time i went through a drive through or something. soon as it stopped rattling is when my SES light came on.

    My 99 V6 Firebird is rattling too.Started about 3 weeks ago. I expect a code anyday. Anyone hear anything about that year/engine? I have 122K on it though.


    Magnaflow offers a complete mandrel bent y-pipe and converters for V6 and LS1 cars that are CARB certified for Cali. You no longer have to deal with the dealer (if GM wont warranty it). 49 state cars have an abundance of options.


    I have been under the impression that emmission systems are covered to 100K. Federal law. Look into that if they try to screw you.
    If I could have all the money I've spent on cars..........I'd spend it on cars!!!!

    Well guys got er done up today. Seems like they did a good job. Took em about 3 hours. It's nice not looking at the check engine light..... lol Am I wrong but the bird seems to have more get up to her....?

    To anyone who I sent the letter too. Call the number and see if your f-body is covered. I think they are not just a 2000 TA.


    I got a 12 month 12,000 mile warrenty on their work. Not to shabby for free!
