Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? Is it an automatic or a manual transmission?

It has 119500 and is Automatic

HI,

Bank 1 is the bank which the #1 cylinder is on, in this case, the bank at rear, facing the firewall.

With the P0420, you check for exhaust leaks, then if you have a scan tool with live data, check that the O2 sensor voltage readings are changing. If it stays flat, replace the O2 sensor.

If no exhaust leaks and O2 sensor readings are switching, then replace the catalytic converter

For this, either Meineke or Midas as they have specialized in exhaust for decades.
