SOURCE: check engine light
that code is saying that your catilitic converter is junk, but could be caused by some other problem also gas leak on exhaust system a/f sensor bank 1,2 sensor 2. heated oxygen sensor bank1 sensor 2, or the three way catilitic converter. these are the listed reasons for that code being thrown, to tell you the truth its not really that big of a deal ya know, i mean its just emissions, either the cat is bad or the oxygen sensor is bad in my opinion will it hurt the car? no, will that little light annoy the **** out of you? YES ; ) because the sensor is behind the cat it will not have any imput into your computer to change fuel maps or anything, the post sensors are only for reading if the cat is good or not, i actually cut mine off and the cat, the check engine light might always be on, but if my car messes up for some other reason then i will feel or smell it and dont really need the dummy light yea know? anyways its your choice to live with it or to take it to the shop and have your sensor tested/cat looked at, either way it wont hurt your car, if your front o2's start going bad you have to change those, but not the post cat one. dont let those shop guys bully ya into spending to much tell me what they say cause there always after an unsuspecting person's wallet, thats why i opened my own shop.
if this helped throw some blue/fix ya rating.
take care have a good day

When running does the engine shake back and forth (indicating a skip in the engine) also does it rev up freely. If you were to rev it up to 3500RPMS would it be smooth without the engine shaking back and forth? Also the o2 sensor on the front of the exhaust manifold is pretty easy to get at, if you were able to pull that( 7/8") wrench I beleive) you could tell if it were running rich (sooty black color). In the end you could take it to a muffler shop and for very little money have them inspect your cat, without any cutting or welding. a $20-$30 cost at most. I know the fixya wants us to be self suficiant but even i don't mess with small exhaust work because of the benieft of not dealing with it, especially for such a small price. But if its something you wanted to do, I could explain so. A shop can visually inspect the cat, and see if it is clogged with oil, or excessive fuel. At any rate in the end if they do find that you do need a cat, don't buy a GM one, there are plenty of other sources for an aftermarket cat. IF you decided to go that route i know of a few sources that one could be had for pretty cheap ($50-70) for new. Let me know if any of this helps

If it has flanges on both ends, just unbolt it and replace. If it has welded pipes you will need to cut it off and use adapter sleeves and clamps. Really not rocket science...at worst, you may need to remove the hangars on the rear portion of the system to get enough room to install.
