change the first 02 sensor in your exhaust system, before the first cat. You might as well change all of them (25-35$) at autozone.

Do this, then save money for 4 more OEM o2 sensors, since the Autozone ones will be bad in a week(if they last that long). Then you can go put a cat on it and fix your problem.

It will stay off until it runs that test again.

Cat replacing time!!!!

It will come back just a matter of time ....Some times bad gas can kick the code , and a weak o2 sensor But As we have replaced more cats then O2 sensors being the problem I am going to say it will come back on soon and it will need a new cat ....
