Smaller cars with 4cylinders do get a beating on parts for they are made much smaller and the cars drive as fast as larger ones. A catylictic converter can be ourchased by aftermarket brands far less than from Ford. About $150 or less. Check a auto parts store then compare to a Ford dealer on all items needed for prices are different in all areas which we live

You should try to solve the cylinder problem first. I would start with a compression test to see whats going on. When did you last do a tune up; plugs, wires etc. The "cat" is probably plugged up from all the excess hydrocarbon buildup due to #8 not firing. If you can fix the cylinder problem, the "cat" may get cleaned out with some highway driving. Good luck.

code p 0420 refers to cat converter system bank 1-efficiency below threshold ====causes --cat converter---wiring ---Heated oxygen sensor (HO2S) in the manifold before the cat converter
as the cat converter is new , that will not be an option as for the rest if the codes were not prior to the cat replacement , I would suspect wire harness problems from the cat fitment

Check engine light after installing cat converter and 02 sensor

Manual can not tell you the problem relaited to check engine light . I mean point the problem . You have to use scaner to retreive the code from ECU and go from there. You could save a lot of money by retreiving code from ECU in the first place , instead of doing guesswork.

If it accelerates good, going up a hill, and you don't feel it holding back, or sluggish when trying to accelerate, I'd certainly get a second opinion. What code were/are you getting?

Cat converters

yes sir they are about right. I have had both of my CAT CONV replaced. The 1st was under warranty. There is a 8yr/80000, mile warranty with the dealer. So I did not have to pay anything for that. The second one was replaced recently at Precision Tune. That was a bout a grand just for the CAT CONV and labor. I had called the mazda dealer and they confirmed as well. So yes we do have two and they do cost about a grand a piece.

goodl luck

Need to know what po431 code

catalytic converter fault, I would try to replace the o2 sensor first because the cat cost just about $500! I know it is the sensor after that cat and I am pretty sure it is for the back side of the motor.

Good luck, I just replaced all o2 sensors and still got that code and I just purchased 2 cats- Big Money Problem!
