Just took my car to the mechanic to fix my ac compressor and he told me that my converter is going bad. It is vibrating and making a raspy sound when I idle... What is the converter and where is it located?

Thanks guys!

catalytic converter? it's the big part of the exhaust pipe, right before the pipe goes up to the engine bay. they do go bad over time. how many miles do you have on it if it wasn't replaced already?

The car has approx. 150k miles on it so I guess it would be about time it quit on me. I'm sure it was stock.
