Hai all

im gucci mane aka Mike

i just got a 2003 impala LS with 20" rims on it

the car has 84k miles on it... i noticed after buying the car that a previous owner had rearended someone with it and they put a base model front bumper on the car and thats why i have a fog light button and no fog lights....

right now i have a check engine light on and am getting approx 20MPG according to the meter in the car which is idk how accurate...

Autozones OBD-II reader says code: P0420

the code went away for a few days then came back??? think my Cat is clogged???

and how many miles to the gallon should i be getting with the check engine light on??? 15-16?

BUT.. Back to my car........ think i should put a new tranny in it, new plugs, wires, sensors, cold air intake, New Catalytic Converter

this car sat for a few years which is why it has 83k miles... so im guessin i should put alot of new stuff and look at all my vacuum lines and any rubber under the car

What up Mane? The code you have is related to the cat converter, time to replace it. And is your trans acting up? If not don't worry about a new one yet. Plugs, wires, fa sho; make sure they both are ac delco parts .....sensors...... if they are bad replace, other than that I wouldn't worry about them. A cold air intake is a nice mod for the ride.

The code he is getting is likely from a stock cat, meaning it's probably on it's way out. An O2 sim would be beneficial if he were running an aftermarket high flow cat and was getting the code, due to the aftermarket cat flowing better than the stock cat.

I suggest getting your cat checked out, because it likely needs replaced.
