Hope I am posting this in the right forum. We have the CEL on in our 01 Ram 1500. Ive read that it is usually an 02 sensor. Any recommendations on whether to replace the sensor or cat converter? Dont wanna waste money on the converter if it could be the sensor. We have to get an inspection soon too...fyi. Any advice/info is greatly appreciated!

Agree that it could be just an O2 sensor however there are different codes for the sensors themselves. The P0420 posts if the upstream and downstream O2 sensors have similar readings I had this one on my 05 pacifica and it turned out to be the convertor. Are there any other symptoms or codes, like is your oil comsumption high ? May need a bit more diagnostics to know for sure.
