P0420 code, have 2zzge egine, recommened replacement?
I have a 03 Matrix xrs, engine type 2ZZGE. I recently went to get my car inspected at VIP (fyi..I live in NH) and it failed because of code P0420. I'm being told that I need a new catalytic converter. According to my engine sticker info my model passes both US EPA and California emissions standards, which seems to make a difference when searching for the right part online.
After reading through several posts/strings, I'm getting worried that fixing this won't solve my problem. I do know that if I do need to replace the cat/cov that it's problably best to stay away from the aftermarket parts.
Any thoughts...and further...any recommendations on a suitable replacement?
