1999 Chevy Suburban 1500, receiving engine code P0430 - any ideas on what this is and how to fix it??

Thanks for your assistance

GM Tech (Cam) :

Hello, I'm Cam. Please include all the details about your issue so I can accurately advise you. I cannot see your vehicle so please be detailed.

GM Tech (Cam) :

This code is set due to a failed catalytic converter. The code specifically points to the passengers side converter.

GM Tech (Cam) :

If there are no leaks in the system, then the only repair is to replace them.

Customer:

Does this vehicle have one or two catalytic converters??

GM Tech (Cam) :

2, one for the drivers side and one for the passengers side.

Customer:

Ouch! - any idea on cost to replace? Is it a project that a novice can do?

GM Tech (Cam) :

Yes, you can do it.

Customer:

Where do i go to get instructions?

GM Tech (Cam) :

They can be replaced easily, and they are a single Y pipe.

Customer:
