Catalytic Converters
Oxygen Sensors
Cats (Felines)

If there is a code for map sensor and 02 sensor does this mean the cat converter is bad or plugging up?

'88 o2 sensor not grounded.if the sundance is an 88 it will have a three prong lead. Plymouth realized that it was not getting enough ground (mopar EEK forum) I've wrapped a wire aroung mine and ran it directly to the negative terminal. code 52 is gone. As to the map senor. try this forum

http://mopar.kmzefamily.net/ecu/index.HTML

check it out and let me know. how does the car drive? * the easiest way to test for a bad conerter is to unplug ita t the manifold. you will need two new bolts since the old ones will snap off. take for a drive. Warning, it will be VERY loud. bring license and registration, as well as a good story. before heading out clear all codes by disconnecting negative terminal for 10 seconds. if at the end of the trip the codes are gone, then you have your answer.

You have a bad 02 sensor after the catalytic converter.

User Avatar

hi! it's the downstream oxygen sensor located right after the catalytic converter,,

User Avatar

Post is the O2 sensor located behind the converter and Pre is the sensor located in front of the converter. Sometimes also referred to as upstream and downstream.

User Avatar

I believe 0421 is a catalytic converter inefficiency code which is usually caused by a bad o2 sensor or a bad catalytic converter, but I have also seen fouled plugs and exhaust leaks cause this code.

Bank 1 (same side as cylinder #1) sensor 1 (before catalytic converter) oxygen sensor circuit voltage high.

P= Powertrain 0140= bad oxygen sensor downstream from the catalytic converter. Check wiring first, if no problems with broken wiring replace sensor.

User Avatar

Replace the O2 sensor. Bank 1 sensor 1 means it is the sensor on the side of the number 1 cylinder and before the catalytic converter.

User Avatar

All oxygen sensors are located in the exhaust system. Some have one in the manifold, some have one before the catalytic converter. Then others have one before and one after the converter. It requires a special socket to remove and replace it. Just because your code says oxygen sensor, does not mean it is bad. A vacuum leak can give a code that the sensor is reading lean.

from what i have read and can find out it is catalyst system below threshold bank 2.it is a catalytic converter problem some say it could be an oxygen sensor. i have the same code on my expedition.i haven't figured out if it's the converter yet

User Avatar

Post Catalyst Fuel Trim System Low Limit It is an 02 sensor code which could be anything from an exhaust leak to a bad catalytic converter.

Gosh, I hope you mean O2 sensor, and if you do they are located on the exhaust tubes, one before the catalytic converter, and one right after it.

The catalytic converter has an oxygen sensor in front and behind it. When the vehicle is warm and running in closed loop mode, the upstream oxygen sensor waveform reading should fluctuate. The downstream O2 sensor reading should be fairly steady. Typically the p0420 code triggers the Check Engine Light if the readings of the two sensors are similar. This is indicative of (among other things) a converter that is not working as efficiently as it should be (according to specs). The code P0420 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 behing the converter are reporting too similar of readings
