P0420, catalyst below minimum efficiency, means that you need a new catalytic converter. But before replacing it check the emissions decal under the hood to see if you have California emissions. If you do the new converter must be C.A.R.B. (California Air Resources Board) compliant. Otherwise the new converter will set the same trouble code. HTH. -Jim
