codes throwing ses light part II
this time it is o0420 and p0430. in other words cat efficiency low in bank 1 and two. i have o2 sims in the back and the cats only appear to be cats. they are gutted out. the causes list from cats defective, engine misfire/running condition, large vacuum leak, and engine oil leakage. the car seems to have been acting up lately at stop lights, it just goes rough. but i have a slight oil aswell. i was just thinking of taking it to have a full tune up and having it checked out in general. the only bad thing is i will be w/o a car for a few days. any suggestions???

Could be the sims as well, since those are what would most likely generate those codes. A rough Idle an be caused by many things. From a vacuum leak to a dirty MAF.

I agree. Sounds like your sims aren't doing their job and like he stated. You could do the tune up and clean the MAF yourself on a Saturday afternoon. Nothing about it is hard.

Yepp save time and money, do the tune-up yourself and clean your maf. Plenty of write ups floating around here if ya need info..

intake assembly was cleaned 2 weekends ago with cnc maf cleaner and a follow up with a shot about an hour after. i am not sure what a full tune up consists of because i have heard so many different things from multiple people and i decided to take the car to my mechanic because i want to get rid of the oil leak. i dont have a whole lot of spare time and i cant afford to be w/o the car for extended periods of time while i work on it. i would much rather take it to someone that i trust and know will not rape me on cost (friend of family with his own shop) for labor, and have it gone for a day or two as opposed to having it out of commission for god knows how long. i dont have much spare time due to a surge of overtime for my crew. all that and my emmissions is coming up quick and i don't want to procrastinate. if you know what i mean. but as for the sims i am gonna get ahold of my tuner and get rid of the rear o2s. i got the sims from a buddy who bought them from ws6store. they were still new in the sealed bag. he was gonna put them in and then got a tune and the tuner said he'll delete them so he won't need them. so he sold them to me for 40 bucks, and thats how i ended up with sims.

is there anything in particular that i have to do for the sims when installing them or are they supposed to nullify the codes as soon as i install them?

Just plug them in, one on either side in the rear harness. I would personaly reset the computer or dis-connect the battery for a bit then start it up and see what happens.
Its a gamble but i ran them for two years with no issues.

If you had the codes before you installed them I'd try clearing the codes or reset the PCM manually and see if they come back.

i disconnected the battery and im gonna go for a cruise for a bit and see if the codes come back on. whether they do or not i still plan on taking care of the oil leak at least. if anybody has some more info dont be shy i would very much appreciate it and to those who had some input thanks.
