Was that based on an actual diagnosis, or just reading codes? And is there also a P0430 DTC set?

I believe based only on the code P0420. It was not registering any other codes. Also, it has not since then. I check it every time it throws a code and it is always P0420. Happens every few weeks, I clear it and move on.

DTC P0420 or P0430
Diagnostic Instructions
•Perform the Diagnostic System Check - Vehicle prior to using this diagnostic procedure.
•Review Strategy Based Diagnosis for an overview of the diagnostic approach.
•Diagnostic Procedure Instructions provides an overview of each diagnostic category.
DTC Descriptor
DTC P0420Catalyst System Low Efficiency Bank 1

DTC P0430Catalyst System Low Efficiency Bank 2

Circuit/System Description
A 3-way catalytic converter controls emissions of hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide (CO) and nitrogen oxide (NOx). The catalyst within the converter promotes a chemical reaction, which oxidizes the hydrocarbons and the CO that are present in the exhaust gas. This process converts the hydrocarbons and the CO into water vapor and carbon dioxide (CO2), and reduces the NOx, converting the NOx into nitrogen. The catalytic converter also stores oxygen. The ECM monitors this process by using a heated oxygen sensor (HO2S) that is in the exhaust stream after the 3-way catalytic converter. The HO2S 2 produces an output signal that the ECM uses to calculate the oxygen storage capacity of the catalyst. This indicates the ability of the catalyst to convert the exhaust emissions efficiently. The ECM monitors the efficiency of the catalyst by allowing the catalyst to heat, then wait for a stabilization period while the engine is idling. The ECM then adds and removes fuel while monitoring the HO2S 2. When the catalyst is functioning properly, the HO2S 2 response to the extra fuel is slow compared to the response of the HO2S 1, which is located before the 3-way catalytic converter. When the HO2S 2 response is near that of the HO2S 1, the oxygen storage capability and efficiency of the catalyst may be degraded below an acceptable threshold.

Conditions for Running the DTC
•DTC P0016, P0017, P0018, P0019, P0053, P0054, P0059, P0060, P0068, P0090, P0091, P0092, P00C8, P00C9, P00CA, P0101, P0102, P0103, P0112, P0113, P0116, P0117, P0118, P0119, P0121, P0122, P0123, P0128, P0131, P0132, P0133, P0135, P0137, P0138, P013A, P013B, P013C, P013D, P013E, P013F, P0140, P0141, P014A, P014B, P0151, P0152, P0153, P0155, P0157, P0158, P0160, P0161, P0171, P0172, P0174, P0175, P0191, P0192, P0193, P0222, P0223, P0300, P0301.

•Before the ECM performs the idle test, the vehicle must be driven under the following conditions:
– Engine speed is greater than 965 RPM
– Engine run time is greater than a calibrated value
– Both conditions exist for greater than 15 s
•Throttle is in the rest position.
•Intake air temperature (IAT) is between −20 to +250°C (−4 to +482°F).
•Ignition voltage is greater than 11 V.
•Engine coolant temperature (ECT) is between 40–127°C (104–261°F).
•Barometric pressure (BARO) is greater than 70 kPa.
•Engine has been idling less than 50 s.
•Vehicle speed is less than 2 km/h (1 mph).
•Short term fuel trim is learned.
Mass air flow (MAF) is between 3–13 g/s.
•Evaporative emissions (EVAP) purge concentration is learned.
•Catalytic converter calculated temperature is between 450–850°C (842–1,562°F).
•Engine is operating in closed loop.
•Transmission is not in P/N (automatic transmission only).
This diagnostic attempts one test during each valid idle period once the above conditions have been met. This diagnostic attempts up to 8 tests during each drive cycle.

Conditions for Setting the DTC
The ECM determines that the efficiency of the catalyst has degraded below a calibrated threshold.

Action Taken When the DTC Sets
DTC P0420 and P0430 are Type A DTCs.

Conditions for Clearing the DTC
DTC P0420 and P0430 are Type A DTCs.

Diagnostic Aids
Inspect for the conditions listed below, which may cause a catalyst to degrade:

•Engine misfire
•High engine oil or high coolant consumption
•Retarded spark timing
•Weak or poor spark
•Lean fuel mixture
•Rich fuel mixture
•Damaged oxygen sensor or wiring harness

Powertrain Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) Type Definitions

Scan Tool Reference
Control Module References for scan tool information

Circuit/System Verification
 1. Ignition On.
 2. Verify there are no other DTCs set.
⇒ If other DTCs are set
Refer to Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) List - Vehicle.

⇓ If no other DTCs are set
 3. Operate the vehicle within the Conditions for Running the DTC.
 4. Verify the scan tool Catalyst Monitor Not At Idle Test Conditions Met parameter changes to Yes.
⇒ If Yes is not displayed
Refer to step 3.

⇓ If Yes is displayed
 5. When the conditions are safe, stop and idle the vehicle in gear if equipped with automatic transmission or neutral if equipped with manual transmission.
 6. Verify the Catalyst Monitor Test Result Bank 1 and Bank 2 parameters display Passed when performing the steps listed below:
6.1. Apply the service brake.
6.2. Monitor the scan tool Catalyst Monitor Test State parameter. When the parameter indicates Active, the Catalyst Monitor Test is running.
Note: When the test has completed, the Catalyst Monitor Test Counter Bank 1 and Bank 2 parameters will increment by one and the Catalyst Monitor Test Result Bank 1 and Bank 2 parameters will indicate Passed, Failed or No Result.

6.3. Continue to monitor the parameter. When the parameter indicates Inactive, the Catalyst Monitor Test has completed.
6.4. Verify the scan tool Catalyst Monitor Test Result Bank 1 or Bank 2 parameter displays Passed.
⇒ If No Result is displayed
Repeat steps 3–6 until the Test Result parameters indicate Passed or Failed.

⇒ If Failed is displayed
Refer to Circuit /System Testing.

⇓ If Passed is displayed
 7. All OK.
Circuit/System Testing
 1. Verify the conditions listed below do not exist with the appropriate catalytic converter:
◦Dents
◦Severe discoloration caused by excessive temperatures.
◦Road damage.
◦Internal rattles caused by damaged catalyst substrate.
◦Restrictions
⇒ If a condition is found
Replace the catalytic converter.

⇓ If no condition is found
 2. Verify the conditions listed below do not exist with the exhaust system:
◦Leaks.
◦Physical damage.
◦Loose or missing hardware.
⇒ If a condition is found
Repair or replace the component as necessary.

⇓ If no condition is found
 3. Verify the conditions listed below do not exist with the appropriate B52B Heated Oxygen Sensor 2:
◦The HO2S is not at the correct torque.
◦Damage.
⇒ If a condition is found
Replace the B52B Heated Oxygen Sensor 2 or repair the condition as necessary.

⇓ If no condition is found
 4. Replace the catalytic converter.
Repair Instructions
Note: A new converter with less than 100 miles on it may set DTC P0420 or P0430 due to out-gassing of the internal matting. Operating the vehicle at highway speeds for approximately 1 hour may correct the condition.

•Catalytic Converter Replacement - Left Side
•Catalytic Converter Replacement - Right Side
•Exhaust Leakage
•Heated Oxygen Sensor Replacement - Bank 1 Sensor 2
•Heated Oxygen Sensor Replacement - Bank 2 Sensor 2
•Perform the HO2S Heater Learn procedure with a scan tool after replacing the Heated Oxygen Sensor.
•Restricted Exhaust
Repair Verification

 2. Perform any adjustments, programming or setup procedures that are required when a component is removed or replaced.
 3. Clear the DTCs with a scan tool.
 4. Turn Off the ignition for 60 s.
 5. Operate the vehicle within the Conditions for Running the DTC.
 6. Verify the scan tool Catalyst Monitor Not At Idle Test Conditions Met parameter changes to Yes.
⇒ If Yes is not displayed
Refer to step 5.

⇓ If Yes is displayed
 7. When the conditions are safe, stop and idle the vehicle in gear if equipped with automatic transmission or neutral if equipped with manual transmission.
 8. Verify the Catalyst Monitor Test Result Bank 1 and Bank 2 parameters display Passed when performing the steps listed below:
8.1. Apply the service brake.
8.2. Monitor the scan tool Catalyst Monitor Test State parameter. When the parameter indicates Active, the Catalyst Monitor Test is running.

Update: I had a shop replace B1S1 as dropping the cradle (necessary for AWD only) would be a significant project for me. Took them about an hour, what a difference that a lift makes. As for the P0420, I got that to go away with the anti-fouler trick and an old O2 for B1S2 so I could get it inspected (automatic fail if the MIL is on), and have a year now before it could be an issue again. In the meantime, I'll remove the anti-fouler to see if the code stays away.
