replace o2 sensor behind cat.converter first, you probably do need a catalyst, the emission warranty for that is 8 years or 80,000 miles minimum and may be longer on some models so if you have less than 80,000 miles and the date car was originally purchased on is less than 8 years ago the dealer will replace it at no cost to you.

You did not state as to the year,make and model of the car as well as the engine size. I am a member of IATN and the majority of there fixes was related to someone installing an AFTER MARKET converter. There is a big difference. I strongly suggest that you go to a repair shop with the proper equipment as well as a very good tech to diagnosis the problem. You could replace parts and never fix the problem.jd1709
