    A code will never point to one item as needing replacement, it takes a diagnosis of the related systems to determine the fault. Here are some things to check for that code:
    A code P0421 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
    * The catalytic converter is no longer functioning properly
    * An oxygen sensor is not reading (functioning) properly
    * A spark plug is fouled up
