The check engine light is on with code P0420.
I already checked the 02 sensor the upstream S1 reads.2 to.7.
The downstream reads 0 volts.
I replaced both sensors with new ones and still the same.
I don't have any leaks on pipes or manifold.
Car shakes a little but not much RPM are around 800.
Please help.
Thank you.
