    Trouble Code: P0432
    Catalyst Efficiency Below Normal (Bank 2)
    Trouble Code Conditions:
    Engine speed at 1200-1700 rpm in closed loop with the throttle open for over 2 minutes, ECT Sensor more than 147ºF, MAP Sensor signal from 15.0-21.0" Hg, and the PCM detected the switch rate of the rear O2 reached 70% of the switch rate of the front O2.
    Possible Causes:
    * Air leaks in at the exhaust manifold or exhaust pipes
    * Base engine problems (high coolant or engine oil consumption)
    * Catalytic converter damaged or has failed
    * Front O2 older (aged) than the rear O2 (O2 is lazy)
