"Catalyst System Efficiency Below Threshold (Bank 1)". Is this something I can repair myself? I have already changed out all sensors, replaced the catalytic converter, and had the torque converter replaced, now this pops up after about 250 miles.
Do you
have the same problem?

It's pretty rare that this is caused by anything but a bad converter. The criteria for setting it is that the front and rear 0/2 sensors have to pretty much mirror each other among other things and that won't happen if the cats are working. I did see it happen once from a crack at the front of the converter letting 0/2 in.
