Your catalytic convertor is stopped up, common problem on Geo's! Will burn an exhaust valve if you keep driving it!

Could the catalytic converter have anything to do with the focus dying, or the o2 sensor


No the catalytic converter would not cause the engine to stop running, and the O2 sensor could make it run rough.
The battery light staying on could kill the engine.

I have a 96 Geo Metro and the code is P0420 and what does that mean.


this is a catalyst efficiency code meaning your cars computer has indicated a problem with the flow of your catalytic converter located just after the exaust manifold i the exaust system, usally these codes are triggerd by a bad or "lazy" oxygen or O2 sensor, try replacing your 02 sensors if they have some miles on them and this may cure the problem, after the repair you will need to have the check engine light cleared by a shop or auto parts store

Have you checked (or replaced) the O2 sensor. This can cause the engine to run bad at cold temps if the sensor is bad

2000 geo metro hard to start after engine is hot


I would focus on what's making your car hot.... a bad catalytic converter sounds like what you have...It's before the muffler..It gets clogged up...makes car run a little hotter and harder to start....Google it
