Hey all I have an 09 XE just literally got it out of the dealer for warranty work on the trans (they replaced the old with new) and it's throwing codes for catalytic converter on bank 1 and bank 2 then 2 days later with out doing anything to it the check engine light went out just wondering if it could be the 02 sensors? Or should I proceed with the catalytic converters?

I Just had a converter replaced. 2 years ago I had all 3 replaced. The mechanic told me the oil needs changed every 3000 miles on these cars because the dirty oil will make the coils misfire and make the converter go bad. How true this is Im not sure..lol My 02 sensors have never been replaced. I wonder if anybody else has had trouble with the catalytic converters multiple time?

I've got 2 catalytic converters and have replaced both along with all the 02 sensors and it's still throwing codes saying they need replaced. Now the vehicle acts like its sputtering as I'm going down the highway any where from 30 mph up to 60mph it'll make a jolt like it's not getting fuel to it is the best way to explain it. My honest opinion is these Outlooks are just junk cars that should have been recalled by the Lemon law acts. The suck and once you have an issue with them they will then continue to drain your bank account with one thing after the other and it'll throw codes not even related to the issue you're having with it.

I Just had a converter supplanted. quite a while back I had each of the 3 supplanted. The repairman let me know the oil needs changed each 3000 miles on these vehicles in light of the fact that the filthy oil will make the curls fizzle and make the converter turn sour.
