    It is possible to replace the front section of the exhaust ahead of the cat converter. It is not necessary to replace the cat converter if it is working.

2000 Toyota Camry - code P0420. Replaced catalytic converter(walker), Replaced sensors before and after catalytic converter. Runs great. Can't pass emissions with error code.


you don`t say did you clear the code after repairs as if not codes will stay in system on some computers. sometimes also you have to use factory convertors as after market ones don`t seem to be built with the same strict specs and don`t work as well. you will have to get it checked out to find what is causing your problem, meaning testing of components. sometimes a problem with the computer will cause this.

P0420 code in a 2006 Suzuki verona Should I start by changing the downstream 02 sensor in the cat before considering a new cat? I have a leaking front flex pipe would that affect this?


Yes, the leaking flex pipe could cause this code. You need to fix that, clear the code and re test. BUT: This vehicle has had issues with the catalytic converters coming apart and ruining the engine. It can suck catalytic converter pieces into the engine. When the converter is removed, visually inspect for damage.

My 2000 Cadillac Deville engine light on. Engine code PO420


Catalyst System Efficiency Below Threshold (Bank 1)

A code PO420 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
  • Leaded fuel was used where unleaded was called for
  • An oxygen sensor is not reading (functioning) properly
  • The engine coolant temperature sensor is not working properly
  • Damaged or leaking exhaust manifold / catalytic converter / exhaust pipe
  • Retarded spark timing
  • The oxygen sensors in front and behind the converter are reporting too similar of reading

  • Check for exhaust leaks at the manifold, pipes, catalytic converter. Repair as required.
  • Use a scope to diagnose the oxygen sensor operation (Tip: The oxygen sensor in front of the catalytic converter normally has a fluctuating waveform. The waveform of the sensor behind the converter should be more steady).
  • Inspect the downstream heated oxygen sensor (HO2), replace if necessary
  • Replace the catalytic converter

Exhaust Flex Pipe; How to replace?


You can change the entire section of exhaust pipe that the flex pipe is in. It's usually bolted to the catalytic converter, on the back end, and to the exhaust manifold at the front end. It's just a matter of unbolting it and bolting on the new section of exhaust with new gaskets. You could also go to a muffler shop and have them cut out the old flex pipe and weld in a new piece of flex pipe in it's place. It's for you to decide which option is best for you, and for your wallet.

I took my 1995 Ford Aerostar to have the flexpipe, muffler, and tailpipe replaced. I shopped around, and Budget Muffler in Kent Ohio stated that they would repair the care for $160+tax. When I picked...


You are right. The engine flexes differently, but not less. The designers that put the engine sideways also put the flex pipe in the design, and the shop is just saving money. I'm a mechanical engineer, and I can tell you the stresses on the joints will be higher without the flex pipe. I can't say for sure something will crack, but it is certainly more likely.

The broken flex pipe can easily be fixed with a generic flex pipe for less then $100.
The catalytic converter is after that, so has nothing at all to do with it.
But cracks can also brazed or welded to fix.
However, the reason flex pipes break is from excessive engine movement.
That almost always means a loose bushing on a motor mount.
So do that first.
Should be less then $50.
Never take a car to a dealer unless you absolutely have to.
They charge twice what it should cost, because they want to sell new cars, not fix older ones.

Under the vehicle. The catalytic converter is a big round pipe, bolted directly after the pipe coming from the exhaust manifold. Behind the converter, running towards the rear, you will see a sensor screwed into the pipe, with wires coming from it. The converter will ALWAYS be forward of that last sensor observed on the exhaust piping.
