    Catalytic converters for a Gx470

    I couldn't get it broke loose. That heat shield tore me up. Will try to plug it back up in the morning and let someone else fool with it. I tried.

    Catalytic converters for a Gx470

    Is there a trick to getting the wire end to unplug? There is a metal plate like a heat shield that's eating my hands up trying to get it unplugged.

    Catalytic converters for a Gx470

    Yeah I had to replace the radiator which started me putting money in it. It got me out west and back and that's what I bought it for. I keep vehicles a long time and had intended to keep this one. I've gone and bought the o2 sensor and the wrench Dan spoke of. I may need to listen to some spa...

    Catalytic converters for a Gx470

    Lights came back on after 12 miles. Priced the o2 sensors and had code checked and still reading the same code. Upstream part is higher than down stream. If I replace o2 sensors and still have issues and have to truly replace the catalytic converter, is the new catalytic converter going to...

    Catalytic converters for a Gx470

    I took the negative cable off and cleaned the MAF and replaced the air filter. Put everything back together and cranked it and no lights. Drive it 3.5 miles and no lights. I replaced the cabin air filter too since I was doing the filter thing today. Will drive it more tomorrow and see what happens.

    The code said bank 2 and I believe that meant right rear. I agree with you about cheaper alternatives.

    Catalytic converters for a Gx470

    P0430 is the code. We don't have smog checks in Alabama. I thought I'd go to the muffler shop that added my exhaust and see if he has had any experience with this and see if he has any suggestions. Maybe there is an alternative to cut the old one out and weld another in place. I've been told...

    Catalytic converters for a Gx470

    When I noticed the lights on it didn't seem to change the way it drove but I didn't take any chances. I drove about 5 miles to my dads farm and parked it. The weekend before it went totally limp and then finally died on the side of the interstate. I replaced the alternator. It's been driven...

    Catalytic converters for a Gx470

    Yeah the estimate to replace is very painful. It's been a rough month where the GX is concerned. I'm researching and asking questions and trying to get as much info as I can, hence why I posted here. I figured I could reach way more folks here with some experience and knowledge. The GX has one...

    Catalytic converters for a Gx470

    I've been having issues with my GX for the past couple of weeks. Two weekends ago I replaced the alternator and now I'm getting codes for bad catalytic converters. The right is completely stopped up and the left is almost stopped up. This was verified at a shop that ran diagnostic testing on it...

    Cam seals? Have you replaced yours or had any trouble with them?

    We went to Tuscaloosa for a softball game and left the ballgame and headed to Dallas a few years ago. We busted the Fort Worth zoo and it was nice. I'm not big on zoos but it was nice. The drive home was a tough one. I think it was about 10 hours. I took i40 out west, I had been on i20 before...

    Cam seals? Have you replaced yours or had any trouble with them?

    ROLL TIDE!!!!!!!!!!! What part? I was born and raised in the Decatur/Hartselle area in north Alabama but currently live in central Alabama south of Birmingham. I think when I posted the thread I couldn't see through the frustration and tears of spending a ton of money on a vehicle after just...

    Cam seals? Have you replaced yours or had any trouble with them?

    LOL at that sticker! It took me a minute to figure it out. I thought it was some kind of symbol. I forgot to mention I replaced the radiator too. THat was the whole reason the timing belt and other items got done is because the radiator was leaking and while I was getting that done had the...
