It could be a catalytic converter. However, it could be an O2 sensor or other item. The Envoy seems to idle poorly in park, with the RPMs moving from 300-800. It is like it can't determine where to idle. It seems worse with the air conditioning running in hot weather. I had a cylinder 4 misfire that I fixed by replacing the boot/coil, but didn't get the P0420 until after that was fixed.
