Let me just say that any money that you paid, or if you have a subscription, that money stays in your account until the answers are rated, (positive) regardless of how fast or how long it may take to get finished. You can FOLLOW UP AT ANYTIME, even after rating.

.

There has been a factory service bulletin, for that type of concern. Warranty extension on the cats. If the recall for the PCM updates was done.

Here is a link to what it states. You can copy and paste it into a new browser and rate the answer on this page.

Originally bank 2 downstream sensor and castalist effency below norm. Change all 4sensors and codes went away and 0421 showed up
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Recall was completed in 2007 accourting to mitsubishi
Mitsubishi Mechanic: Jerry, Master Mechanic replied 1 year ago

I see, thanks. Do you think there is something other than either the cat or the software that is causing the code to set?

Was the software recall done on it?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
all of it was done
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Like i said the 0421 is the only code that showed up after changing them. And was new. All the bank 2 codes went away
Mitsubishi Mechanic: Jerry, Master Mechanic replied 1 year ago

So the cats were both changed and the calibrations were installed in the PCM?

Ask Your Own Mitsubishi Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
according to mitsubishi warranty dept. Called them directly because the dealer said there were no open recalls. They added that everything was done in 2007
Mitsubishi Mechanic: Jerry, Master Mechanic replied 1 year ago

That is all I could think it would be on it, but wait there may be another expert who has more. I will opt out and open it back up. Please DON’T REPLY to this post as that will lock the question back to me, also DON’T RATE THE ANSWER yet, someone should be along shortly, I’m sure, thanks and sorry I wasn’t able to help with it.

Engine performance from what i can tell is normal. I even tried spacing bank 1sensor 2 with 2nonfoulars.
Mitsubishi Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

Where did the sensors come from?

Did the problem start after any work was done?

Are there any exhaust leaks?

Ask Your Own Mitsubishi Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
All are bosch exact fit and came from autozone. I bought the car a week prior and the engine light was on. No exhaust leaks. Ive been a tech for 20 years and never seen an issue like this
Mitsubishi Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

Bosch sensors will usually cause repeat issues. I'd recommend factory sensors.

There are only a few causes for a converter efficiency code. An exhaust leak can draw oxygen into the exhaust stream and set it, a lazy upstream sensor will set it, or the converter itself. By far the most common cause of a converter efficiency code is a failed converter.

Ask Your Own Mitsubishi Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
how can the converter be diagnosed that it is bad so warranty will cover
Mitsubishi Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

You would check for exhaust leaks and monitor the switch rate of the upstream sensor with a scan tool.
