Here is a copy of the "Policy Adjustment" that I took to the dealer with me this morning. Hope this helps any of you.
Subject: Special Policy Adjustment - Catalytic Converter #05551 -(09/14/2005)
Models: 2001-02 CHEVROLET IMPALA, MONTE CARLO
2001-02 PONTIAC GRAND PRIX

Some customers of 2001-02 Chevrolet Impala, Monte Carlo; Pontiac Grand Prix; and Buick Regal model vehicles, equipped with a 3.4L (RPO LA1 - VIN E) or 3.8L (RPO L36 - VIN K) V6 engine, may experience a condition where the vehicle exhaust catalytic converter is replaced due to complaints of lack of power or illumination of the Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL). This may be due to the front endcone insulation from the catalytic converter breaking away and blocking the front of the first catalyst brick and preventing the free flow of exhaust gas through the converter.
Special Policy Adjustment
This special policy covers the condition described above for a period of 10 years or 120,000 miles (190,000 km), whichever occurs first, from the date the vehicle was originally placed in service, regardless of ownership. The repairs will be made at no charge to the customer.

Claims with repair orders prior to September 15, 2005 must be submitted to the Service Contract provider.
Involved are all 2001-02 Chevrolet Impala, Monte Carlo; Pontiac Grand Prix; Buick Regal model vehicles, equipped with a 3.4L (RPO LA1 - VIN E) or 3.8L (RPO L36 - VIN K) V6 engine and built within the following VIN breakpoints:
Parts required to complete this special policy are to be obtained from General Motors Service Parts Operations (GMSPO).
Converter, Catalytic (L36 engine)
Converter, Catalytic (LA1 engine)
Gasket, Catalytic Converter (Converter to I-Pipe, both)

The only thing left is the injector or a vacuum leak on the manifold gasket sucking air in and causing a lean condition. Thats is its the only common issue providing you dont have a head gasket issue leaking coolant on that cylinder and the compression and valves are not leaking. The old spark plug should show a coolant issue if present. The white part will be shiney if you have a coolant loss. If the coolant is looking real dark you should have the cooling system checked for gas being pushed into the cooling system on compression stroke thru the head gasket.

you don`t say if after you replaced components the miss fire was fixed.you may have the problem still there as on these cars the light will go out when the problem is fixed.however you can reset the light with a scan tool or disconnect the battery for a minute.record your radio stations as they will have to be reset.the procedure to reset radio is in your owners manual.
