Hi there:
The following diagnosis might be helpful if the vehicle exhibits the symptom(s) described in this TSB:
Condition/Concern:
Some customers may comment of check engine light with DTC of P0420 or P0430. DTC P2096 may also be present.
Recommendations/Instructions:
The cause may be a hole in the weld of post catalyst O2 sensor boss on the exhaust pipe which allows outside air into the pipe at the O2 sensor and skews the post catalyst O2 sensor reading. The hole may or may not be readily visible, depending on its position. If a hole is found, it may be repaired by welding it shut. If a hole is found on a 2006 model year vehicle, please contact Dave Dickey at(NNN) NNN-NNNN

Pay attention that if you buy gas at a known good station, the code will go away. So, fuel quality does play a role in this. The chemical treatments are something that are new to me, but my parts salesman says he has heard good things from his customers about it.

Hope this helps.

What does a po430 code mean on a mercury cougar


EXHAUST RELATED ERROR CODES

There are 711 possible PO generic DTC error codes. Only 7 of the 711 codes are exhaust related.

PO401: Insufficient EGR Flow

PO402: Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) Excessive Flow Detected

PO410: Secondary Air Injection System Malfunction

PO420: Catalyst System Efficiency Below Threshold (Bank 1)

PO421: Warm-Up Catalyst Efficiency Below Threshold (Bank 1)

PO430: Catalyst System Efficiency Below Threshold (Bank 2)

PO431: Warm-Up Catalyst Efficiency Below Threshold (Bank 2)

THINGS TO ASK YOURSELF OR YOUR CUSTOMER

Have there been any driveability or performance issues with the vehicle, have there been any recent repairs or tune-up work performed, if so was the check engine light reset and were the codes recorded on previous repair orders.

Do not rely on scan tool data alone. In most applications, the customer will have the check engine light reset prior to repair. If the original cause of converter failure is intermittent, only the catalyst failure code may show up

I have a po430 code bank 2 what 02 sensor is it?


P0430 is a catalytic converter inefficiency code for bank 2.

You didn't list a year make and model but I do see you have a GM. It is not an O2 sensor. It is the catalytic converter. You can confirm this by watching O2 data with scan tool. If the downstream O2 sensor switches simular to the upstream than the Cat is no longer doing its job.

Bank 1 always refers to the same side of the engine as the number 1 cylinder. Bank 2 is the opposite side. again without a year make and model that is about as detailed as I can get.

Let me know if you have any questions and thank you for using fixya.com.

Sounds like you have low fuel supply or a leak in intake system causing lean codes, check fuek pressure and volume first. Cat converter effeciancy could be caused by the lean codes, purge system sounds like solenoid failure, check for high resistance accross purge vent solenoid.
