02 ford escape xls.. bought from buy here pay here with 143500 miles. 50/50 90 day warranty for internal engine and transmission only. Well I had about 45 days and oil pump went and ruined the engine, got that replaced with a engine with 68000 miles same year same model (warranty shop says.) So not even 100 miles after I get that engine my check engine light comes on he tells me to go check the code at autozone, it ended up being P0430 the catalytic converter. Warranty guy says yea that's it you need a new one without even looking at my car tells me it'll be 500(not covered in warranty.) My question is
#1 Would he not be able to tell this when running test on the engine he just put in?
#2 Can they tell which catalytic converter it is with not checking? (I know there are 3)
#3 Do you think they are trying to rip me off?

No, that code is for low efficiency of the bank 2 converter. It's rarely anything but a bad converter. There may be 3 converters but there are only 2 that are monitored. It depends on the layout but you may be buying a "Y" pipe with both of them anyway.

So he wouldn't be able to tell this when he was running tests on the engine he just put in ? Also when I was driving to stop it off at the shop the engine cut off when I was trying to make a turn. Everything went dead and had to place in park cut it off and restart it. The converter would make it do that?

Also is that a good price for the converter and install?

The computer monitors the efficiency of the cats ad apparently it hadn't set the code yet when the engine was changed or no one read it before disconnecting the battery which would have erased it.

I can't tell you much about the price because I don't know what you are buying.
