Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose), my normal schedule online is around lunch and after dinner till early morning.

Do you know which codes are stored?

Expert:  Chris (aka - Moose) replied 8 months ago.

Hello again Chris here,

  1. I have to assume you were not pleased with my help, because you have not replied or rated the post.
  2. What would you like to do regarding your question now?
  3. Do you still need help? Please reply I want you to get equal to or more than what you paid for.
  4. This post is coming up on the 7 day mark where it times out. That can prevent me from being able to post answers to your replies.

Thanks Chris

So I assume those warning lights that were on are no longer on?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
warning lights are still on. my ? is could my cat converter be bad car has 250,000 miles
Expert:  Chris (aka - Moose) replied 8 months ago.

If the converter is bad there would be low power, catalyst efficiency codes stored. If you remove the upper O2 sensor this would bypass a possible restricted converter.
