P0430 Catalyst System Efficiency Below Threshold (Bank 2)
in case it didnt all fit. But i just bought a 2004 sedan, and on my way on the highway today i popped a CEL, revving the engine to about 5k in 3rd gear trying to get on the highway from an onramp. Well i go to autozone to check it out and they tell me this...i go to the dealership and they say to bring it in and theyll look at it. They asked me if i got gas in the last week and i did, and they say tha tsometimes it will do a CEL if the gas cap isnt on tight enough...i doubt this is my problem...but i wanted to reset the CEL by pulling the ground...and tightening the cap but the dealer said dont touch anything...so theres no blame involved.
what should i do? im pretty pissed already that i have a CEL, and something needs to be fixed, it totally blows my confidence in this specific car out the window...in my old ford escort zx2 i had never had a CEL, until about 86k, when the alternator went.
