OEM Toyota Parts

Well, long and behold, my dad is a dumbass. Puts diesel into his 2010 Corolla, already spent $660 cleaning the fuel system and injectors. Now the CEL goes off, Cat needs to be replaced. Toyota quoted him around $1800 for part and labor. So estimated $2k ballpark.

Anywhere online I can order OEM Toyota parts cheaper and take it to a private mechanic or even Toyota to get them to replace it?

If I choose not to get it done at Toyota, does that void the car warranty since his car is less than 2 years old?

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I'm sure you can pick up a cat cheaper for $250 at a auto parts store and get it put on for cheap.

Though I'm 99% sure if you do that you can say bye bye to warranty, at least for your cat and exhaust. But you can replace the cat 3 times over for the price Toyota wants to charge you.

Your fuel system and emissions system warranty was pretty much voided the minute your dad put diesel in the car. At this point, it doesn't really matter where the repairs are done.

A quick Google search says that an OEM converter is around $1000 USD in the States.

If you don't want to go the OEM route, a simple Magnaflow Cat is about $80. Then about $80 to have the flanges welded and installed at any exhaust shop.

They're EPA + OBD2 compliant, and it shouldn't be any louder than stock. If anything, you might get better exhaust flow for the butt dyno.

You can also try an junkyard. Might luck out.. All 10th gens have the same engine if it isnt a XRS. So you can look at 2009-2012's.

Its funny I always see 10th gen corolla's at body shops.. People must really suck at driving them..

Get an OEM Toyota cat. $1800 is not abnormal for OEM with labour. Fuck aftermarket.

As mentioned above, check the junk yards to see if they are available.

i highly doubt you'll find one at a junk yard... these cars don't typically get sent to junk yards... they usually get rebuilt into cabs...

i'm sorry to hear your dad had issues with his cat converter... i suggest driving the car and getting the exhaust nice and hot to see if you can burn off any residual diesel fuel in the cat and also on the air fuel ratio and oxygen sensors on the exhaust... drive the car for a few hundred KM on a nice, long drive (not short trips)...

i would NOT go with an aftermarket cat... all aftermarket cats i've seen installed on a LEV or LEVII vehicle have triggered cat innefiency codes.

i use him to order all my OEM parts for my supra, hooks everything up at cost, fast shipping + very friendly service, not sure what he can do for non supraforums members but its worth dropping him a line.

A big rig doesn't buy gas at your typical gas station. Commercial pumps are on magnitudes faster than your regular public pumps, otherwise they'd be standing there for hours on end pump in hundreds of liters of diesel.

Still, many commercial vehicles buy 250L+ at regular stations. Point is, diesel nozzels are bigger.

I've had customers put diesel into our old VW golf courtesy cars before. $2G in damages.

some gas stations dont know any better, when a nozzle fails, they just grab any spare one they have and use it. seen the opposite happen with gas into a diesel.
