Catalytic converters should last the life of the vehicle. usually they are damaged be a poorly running engine. most common causes are lean misfire causing unburnt fuel and air to get into the convert and ignite there. coolant or oil burning. engine running too hot (lean) overheating converters.

was it the same converter that went twice? did they change them at the same time? where the pre-converters? is the engine light on?

How do i fix p0430 code Nissan frontier 2005


A code P0430 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:

  • The catalytic converter is no longer functioning properly
  • An oxygen sensor is not reading (functioning) properly
  • There is an exhaust leak

It is most likely that an O2 sensor just prior to the catalytic converter has gone "lazy" and is not reading properly. To remove the O2 sensor, I would soak the sensor first with a rust penetrant and then you will need a 7/8" wrench or socket (depending on the sensor's location).

HI I have light service engine soon I conect a code reader P0430 catalytic converter sistem efficincy below threshold (back2)


The catalytic converter is not working as well as it should be, this code will not affect they way the truck runs, just means it is polluting more than it should be. Converters are covered under a 8 yr 80,000 mile federal emissions warranty, if you have less than 80,000 miles, contact yoru dealer and they should replace them under warranty. Otherwise, you can replace it with an aftermarket one for less money, but most likely the code will return, due to the aftermarket ones usually not being as good as the factory ones.

i have a 1990 toyota camry, it is overheated very fast, its catalytic converter is clogged and i drilled a few holes in it to let some of that stuff out to let it generate right, but it is not wanting to stay crankedand when the engine gets to a certain temperature, the sound of the engine changes and if you hit the gas all it does is shake and you hear a pinging sound in the engine and when you cut it off it wont crank again until it cools all the way back down
