P0431


Well code 431 means the computer does not think the catalytic converter is working correctly. The engine computer uses data from the O2 sensors to monitor the cat.
The actual problem could be the cat, one of the O2 sensors, a fuel problem, or other things. The O2 sensors would need to be watched with a scanner to find the issue.

Trouble code: p0431 on 2004 hyundai santa fe 3.5L. Wondering about possible solutions

Kia p0431, p0446, p0715


They are three separate issues.
Code 431 involves the O2 sensors and the catalytic converter, code 446 is for the evap vent control for the gas tank, and code 715 is for the input shaft speed sensor in the transaxle.
The engine temp and other factors would need to be checked for code 431, and the sensors would need to be tested for the other two codes.

Check Engine light problem. P0431 code problem. It's already being determined it's the oxygen sensor. But which one? Is it Bank 2 or Bank 1. If it's one of the Banks is it before or after the...

P0431 is Warm up catalyst efficiency bellow threshold Bank 2
Don't know what you're working with so just figure bank 1 comes off the bank with the number 1 cylinder.

I ran an engine analyst and got codes P0446 twice and code P0431 once. what does this mean.


P0431 Warm up catalytic converter, bank 2 - efficiency below threshold
Possible causes: Catalytic converter, wiring, HO2S 2

Usually caused by worn out catalytic converter, but always check fuel pressure regulator for proper operation before replacing a converter.


P0446 Evaporative emission (EVAP) system, vent control -circuit malfunction
Possible causes: Wiring, EVAP canister purge valve, ECM

May be caused by a loose or disconnected wire to the vent valve or possibly a bad valve solenoid

If you would like part locations, troubleshooting or replacement procedures, please let me know.

Have a code p0431 on a passat 4motion


P0431 Warm Up Catalyst Efficiency Below Threshold Bank 2
The word Catalyst, means that the catalytic converter needs to be replaced because some of the warm up catalyst is not working initially when the car first starts up before it warms up.

Good luck on this repair.

P0431 code on audi allroad 02


Typcally caused by one of the front oxygen sensors or a bad ground associated with these sensors.Replace both front sensors with direct fit type NOT universal, because there may be a cracked wire and the universal sensor does not contain the complete wire harness. Direct fits, are about $20 more than universal fit type.

The O2 sensors have integrated heating elements that bring them up to the proper operating temperature. Code P0431 indicates that the O2 sensor on your driver side catalytic converter is not reaching the proper operating range. The O2 sensors are usually in the $150 range online.

ABS sensor or sensors have failed , cost about $40 each and need to have a reset done on a VW coded laptop.

Quite a big undertaking putting a clutch in a Passat not to be tackled lightly and without workshop facilities

With 172K miles the whole car must be on the edge of the cliff , think you are due to part company with it or dig very deep into your pockets for a fix

What are code p0342 and p0431


342 is camshaft position sensor and 431 is your catalytic converter may be getting weak. If this was my car I would do the 342 code and see if the other code for the cat comes back. Tell the shop fix the camshaft sensor. If the sensor is bad your car can still run but its possible you could set a cat code because
of it but on the other hand you cannot set a camshaft code because of a bad cat.
