SOURCE: 02 sensors not ready

The code P0420 indicates that the catalytic converter is not functioning efficiently. This could be because the cat is damaged or the engine is not running very well and the cat cannot keep up with the emissions. You should ensure that the spark plugs and ignition components are in top shape before replacing anything else. If a compression check reveals a low cylinder, you will not be able to prevent this code as even a new cat cannot keep up with a dead miss. If the state of tune and the compression is good, then you'll likely need a cat.

I've posted the drive cycle just so you know what to do when you have resolved the code.

  1. Cold Start. In order to be classified as a cold start the engine coolant temperature must be below 122°F (50°C) and within 11°F (6°C) of the ambient air temperature at startup.
    Do not leave the key in prior to the cold start or the heated oxygen sensor diagnostic may not run.
  2. Idle. The engine must be run for two and a half minutes with the air conditioner on and rear defroster on. The more electrical load you can apply the better. This will test the O2 heater, Passive Air, Purge "No Flow", Misfire, and - if closed loop is achieved- Fuel Trim.
  3. Accelerate. Turn off the air conditioner and all the other loads and apply half throttle until 55mph (88km/hr) is reached. During this time the Misfire, Fuel Trim, and Purge Flow diagnostics will be performed.
  4. Hold Steady Speed. Hold a steady speed of 55mph (88km/hr) for 3 minutes. During this time the O2 response, air Intrusive, EGR, Purge, Misfire, and Fuel Trim diagnostics will be performed.
  5. Decelerate. Let off the accelerator pedal. Do not shift, touch the brake or clutch. It is important to let the vehicle coast along gradually slowing down to 20 mph (32km/hr). During this time the EGR, Purge and Fuel Trim diagnostics will be performed.
  6. Accelerate. Accelerate at 3/4 throttle until 55-60mph (88-96 km/hr). This will perform the same diagnostics as in step 3.
  7. Hold Steady Speed. Hold a steady speed of 55mph (88km/hr) for five minutes. During this time, in addition to the diagnostics performed in step 4, the catalyst monitor diagnostics will be performed. If the catalyst is marginal or the battery has been disconnected, it may take 5 complete driving cycles to determine the state of the catalyst.
  8. Decelerate. This will perform the same diagnostics as in step 5. Again, don't press the clutch or brakes or shift gears.

Reading codes 13 and 32 smelles of gas 1992 gmc sierra 1500 k-model 350ci

13 is an O2 sensor circuit issue, 32 is the EGR-OBDI is not as precise as OBD!! but you should see if your egr is hooked up, or if there is a blown fuse for it-the O2 sensor might just be due for replacement, you could try to clean the codes first (disconnect the neg cable for 10 minutes) to see if they come back right away.

While you are checking things, make sure the fuel pressure regulator is not leaking or has gas in the vacuum hose that connects to it.
