Here is some info and other similar questions asked about the P0432 DTC http://repairpal.com/search/p0432 : 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)
