Jeep Mechanic: Chris, Shop Foreman replied 1 month ago

Ok, the P0420 and P0430 are catalytic converter codes (efficiency problem with the cats), The P0404 is an EGR valve code, and the P0138 is an oxygen sensor heater code. How many miles are on the Wrangler?

Customer reply replied 1 month ago
but how can there be problems when the codes change and go off all the time? and over the counter products change or eliminate the code?
Jeep Mechanic: Chris, Shop Foreman replied 1 month ago

Those cats may be worn out. Stand by, I want to check a few things. I will be back in about 2 to 3 minutes.

Jeep Mechanic: Chris, Shop Foreman replied 1 month ago

Are there any exhaust leaks at or near the catalytic converters? Even tiny leaks?

this i don't know the one garage I took it to just said based on the code that the cats are bad but he didn't run a smoke test or anything\
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
the exhaust from visual inspection doesn't look great \
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
rusted on the outside
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
could it be the o2 sensor
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
could the root of the problem be the erg valve being that is the primary code
Jeep Mechanic: Chris, Shop Foreman replied 1 month ago

Ok, well at that kind of mileage, they may be worn out, BUT like I said, tiny leaks can set those codes. As far as the P0138, you will probably have to replace the right downstream O2, and the EGR valve will probably take care of the P0404.

Ask Your Own Jeep Question
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
is it possible the egr valve is the cause of all other codes?
Jeep Mechanic: Chris, Shop Foreman replied 1 month ago

I would do the EGR valve and O2 sensor first, then clear the codes and verify there are no exhaust leaks.

Jeep Mechanic: Chris, Shop Foreman replied 1 month ago

Then if the P0420 and P0430 return, replace the cats,

the whole emissions issue is a crap shoot because these other codes only just popped up?
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
what do you make of the fact that the cataclean erased the 0430 code?
Jeep Mechanic: Chris, Shop Foreman replied 1 month ago

Well it takes a few drive cycles for the computer to see if the cats are working or not. You could drive a lot before it conemns them and sets the code. That is just how it works.
