P0420 and 0430 error codes on 1997 Mercury Cougar

The car seems to run fine, good power mileage, but need to pass Ohio echeck in july. When I clear the codes they reappear in 1-3 days

With the same tool used to retrieve the codes and diagnose the problem. It is very likely that the engine light will go off again if the issue is not repaired.
