When I check the system with a scanner at my local mechanic the code that appears is PO420. This car has a 3.1 v6 with automatic transmission. If anyone has encountered the same problem please e-mail any suggestions to correct the problem. Thank you and may you have a Blessed Day.

    P0420-catalyst below efficiency , have system (rear O2 sensor) monitored with scanner(NOT CODE READER!!!!!) to verify converter function. Clear code and see if it returns.
