    Does anyone know what this is? Apparently it is a part of my car that needs to be replaced.......part of the emissions system it seems.

    Anyone car to venture how much this little beauty costs to replace?


    $575!!!

    I wonder if I could just shove a charcoal briquette up there instead?

    Its a catalytic converter which is a filter filled with catalysts which react with the exhaust fumes and neutrallise them.

    I just googled it and it seems to quite a common problem with Toyotas.

    Of course it's part of the catalytic converter. I had a Ford once that had THREE catalytic converters on it and they all needed to be replaced. That was one expensive repair bill!!!
