Question about Honda CR-V

Open Question

I have a 2006 CRV with an emissions control indicator light that won't go off. I was told it was the catalytic converter so I replaced that a year ago. Then they said it was the O2 censors so I replaced those. Then Autozone said it was a simple as a new gas cap. Light it still on. I know something is wrong because I'm getting about 12 mpg. What else could it be?

I would take the Odyssey to Autozone (or some other of the same sort) and have them hook their reader up to you OBD-II port and get the exact codes that your malfunction light is indicating. They don't charge for that, and it will help you know exactly what the problem is.
Hope this helps you.

No big problem,turn the gas cap to tighten it,and keep turning it until it clicks,drive awhile,and it should reset itself.If it does not,replace the fuel cap.

Please make sure you gapped the plugs to specifications. ( probably 35 thou' of an inch ) gap gages are very inexpensive. Also suspect the spark plug wires, check teher integrety as well the correct firing order. To check for short, in the dark watch for arching to ground ( visually ).

Hope that helps.

Location of code p1137 on 01 alero


catalytic converter .
In order to control emissions, a catalytic converter converts any harmful exhaust emissions into harmless water vapor and carbon dioxide.
The powertrain control module (PCM) has the capability to monitor this process by using a rear-heated oxygen sensor (HO2S 2). The HO2S 2 , located in the exhaust stream past the catalytic converter, produces an output signal which indicates the storage capacity of the catalyst. This in turn indicates the catalysts ability to convert the exhaust emissions effectively. If the catalyst is functioning properly, the HO2S 2 signal will be far less active than the signal produced by the front oxygen sensor (O2S 1).

Where is catalytic converter on 2006 kia sportage? how many are there?


Hello Denise, its hard to believe that your computer didn't give a code that tell which one it is or that you have a bad o2 sensor ,sensors gather data from o2 sensor and that would give away which cat is bad if any ,can you have someone elise check it over before fixing it?

Took my 2003 Toyota 4runner in because engine light was coming on intermittently. That has happened before. Also complained of sulpher smell twice. the first time car was 6moths old...they said changed...


No it is not under emissions warranty the year is what is the factor, it is 7 years or 70,000 mile whichever comes first. You need the check engine fault code read and that fixed first, it is most likely the cause of the smell from the catalytic converter which is caused by a overly rich fuel air mixture. The fact you smelled the sulfur indicates the Cat is working. I was a certified repair and inspection technician for the Calif smog control program for 35 years.

Catalytic converter & check egine light


You didnt say what country or state you are from. If you are from the US removing the cats will cause your to fail safety and emissions inspections due to missing components ie no catalyctic converter. The cats dont have anything to do with exhaust noise. They are there to capture bad emissions. What dealer did you take it to? A reputable dealer would not have told you straight pipes would solve the problem.

If the Catalytic converter is gone in a Honda Crv 2003 model does the vehicle blow smoke from exhaust and have a louder sound from exhaust when over 3000 revs?


Its possible the catalytic converter is stopped up, or the muffler.
A mechanic would disconnect the cat and check for blockage.

I own a 2006 F-150 it has a code po 420 how do I fix it


this obd2 trouble code table can help you understand the meaning of code.
for p0420, you can try:

Check for exhaust leaks at the manifold, pipes, catalytic converter. Repair as required.

Use a scope to diagnose the oxygen sensor operation (Tip: The oxygen sensor in front of the catalytic converter normally has a fluctuating waveform. The waveform of the sensor behind the converter should be more steady).

Inspect the downstream heated oxygen sensor (HO2), replace if necessary

Replace the catalytic converter

One thing to note is that many vehicle manufacturers offer a longer warranty on emissions-related parts. So if you have a newer car but it's out of it's bumper-to-bumper warranty, there still may be warranty on this type of problem. Many manufacturers give a five year, unlimited mileage warranty on these items. It's worth checking into.

05' Dodge RAM 1500 code p0420. I've been changing oxygen sensors since u bought it 2 years ago, thought the problem was solved but yet again check engine light came on, could there be an other problem??


Hello: Code P0 420 indicates the catalytic converter is operating below calibrated efficiency (below 60%) replacing the oxygen sensors will not correct the condition. The converter needs to be replaced and the code cleared.

How do you delete catalytic converters on 2006 dodge ram 5.7 hemi without getting the check engine light


it is not legal to remove or bypass the catalytic converters.the converters do not restrict the exhaust flow to any degree because of how they are now designed and the material used in them to control emissions, if the converter is causing the light to come on then they need replacing but this should be checked out.
