Question about 1996 Lexus LX 450
The code reader says: P0420=catalyst system effeciency below threshold (bank 1). I would like to solve the issue without replacing the whole exhaust system, where do I start?
With that code you most likely have to replace the catalytic converter.You can try to reset the light but it will come back in time.
