I have changed the cat converter, oxygen sensor and the EGR valve already and has been reset. But after a couple of days, the check engine light is back. What must be the real problem on my vehicle?
Do you

That is for the catalytic converter. Considering you have already replaced the converter and O2 sensor, there is most likely a wiring issue. Have you checked wiring to the sensor for damage, corrosion? Has you check (with a live scanner) the parameters of the sensor? Is it within spec?
