additional note: my sienna has all complete tune up, new spark plugs , new timing belt new water pump, complete kit all parts are from Toyota dealership...car runs very smooth but once in a while the CAT code PO 420 coming back....My truly concern is if I buy the CAT OEM from Toyota, will that guarantee the code will never come back or not otherwise is a waste of money and I will go back to square one...remember, smog inspection report in CA passed with flying color HC/CO/NOX are all excellent...
I even tried to use the CATAClean chemical 2 bottles still code coming back in few months....

Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. Please allow me to assist you. Please advise if the Air/fuel and the oxygen sensors were purchased at a Toyota dealership parts department. Thanks
