Hello, my name is***** for the question. If I am not online when you return please give me some time to get back to you.The only way to guarantee that you will not get a constant check engine light on any car is by using an OE converter. With that being said, on a 2000 you might be fine. The older models such as yours have parameters that are not quite as stringent. Please let me know if you need more help.

So in your professional opinion what is the best catalytic converter I can get for my car ? Also what is the best method of replacing it? My car is saying saying catalyst below threshold bank 1 and small evap leak and large evap leak what are those ?
Expert:  FIXITMAN replied 2 years ago.
The evap leaks are a different problem. Those may be the result of a leaking solenoid, a bad hose, or more commonly a bad gas cap. As for the catalyst code this is usually the converter. If you are not simply going for performance then I would go with an OE replacement on it.
