The only way to find out what the problem is is by doing a scan of the car computer module using an OBD code reader.
The codes returned will tell you the cause of the problem.

Not an intrigue, sorry. run over anything lately? A pinched cooler line could cause this. Or maybe just an old, gummy transmission.

This means that the secondary O2 sensor detects that the catalytic converter
isn't working as efficiently as it should.
This engine code can be triggered by any one of the following:
1.) The catalyst in the catalytic converter is cracked, clogged, or otherwise damaged.
2.) The secondary O2 sensor is malfunctioning.
3.) There is an exhaust leak.
4.) The computer unit is faulty.
