If the code was (catalytic converter below threshhold) its more tlikely that you will not need to replaced the catalytic conv.but is a possiblity. First check your o2 sensors for proper function. These are electrical units in your exhaust that read your air/fuel ratio and are a lot more likely to malfunction.

My 2003 altima has a check engine light for about 2 weeks. I just started getting my battery and brake lights fluttering.hooked computer up to it. It said code p0420 catalytic converter low threshold.


Very common code on the Altima. You will need to replace your manifold/converter. There is also some concern over the converter material getting back into your engine causing further damage. You need to take care of this asap. IT WILL NOT BE AN 02 SENSOR!! Please don't let anyone tell you otherwise. for further information google QR25DE converter issue and happy reading. Many guys have replaced their converters with a header for piece of mind.

Sounds like the mechanic who changed the Cat Converter hit the wires to the oil sending unit or a metal shield on the engine that needed to be removed to replace the Cat was not put back properly and is so loose it is hitting the wire to the oil sensor...

You Prabably need a new catalytic converter. Very common problem with toyotas. You will need to get a dealer part as the aftermarket converters will put your check engine light on eventually.

Check engine light - catalytic converter problem


If you haven't replaced the O2 sensor that is causing your check engine light to come on by generating a fault code in the ECM, replace it first. Cleaning the Catalytic Converter is not the thing to do. Replacing the faulty sensor will pay for itself in the long run with the better fuel economy you will get.

If you want the check engine light to stay off, make sure that the converter is a direct fit, and not a universal. It should work fine then.

Check engine light on for sometime; Response to throttle sluggish


If your catalytic converter is "below efficiency" or otherwise clogged, you will lose power as you drive and the vehicle heats. The more you drive the vehicle, the worse the problem will become. The exhaust can't escape properly through the catalytic converter, therefore your engine won't run properly. Your issues are related, and if you replace your catalytic converter they should go away.

If the code for the engine light is a Lien code:

Common problem is the Mass Air Flow sensor. Go to your local auto parts store and get a spray solvent to spray right past the air filter.
This will sometimes correct the engine light. Otherwise you may have to replace the MAF.
Do not replace the Catalytic Converter or the O2 sesors. Some mechanics may try to do this, as it is generally the problem on other vehicles. However, on this model Corolla, it is generally not the case.

The oil light is a low pressure warning. Either you need more oil, or a new oil pump.
