    Honda OBD codes/ check engine light's on.

    gotta 99 Acura Integra, Check engine light just came on and had a buddy pull the codes on his OBD scanner.

    only pulled one code, and shut the check engine light off for about an hour.

    said: Catalist system effecintcy below threshold ( bank 1 )

    what dose that mean???

    I would think that the cat would be clogged up, take it to an exhaust shop

    Could be, before I went ordering parts I would check the codes on honda scanner or check them on the dash at the CEL. It may tell you faulty 02 sensor instead. My impression was he used a generic reader, which wouldn't give you as specific as checking the actual trouble code.

    it was a factory Honda dealer OBD Scanner.

    pulled a code that lead's us to faulty cat.

    so he is checking on how mutch a factory one is...

    and my old cat, what do i do with that? throw it away or take it to a metal recycler and get money for it??

    you can bring the old cat in and get i think like $40 for it, people go around stealing them to make money.
    a stock cat from a dealer is probably going to cost way too much

    Re: Honda OBD codes/ check engine light's on.

    Do not get the cat from honda unless you want to get rape up the @ss. They're expensive. Buy a direct fit cat from magnaflow/catco or eastern.

    This where I bought mine.

    o2 sensors (denso or ngk)

    Need help installing it check out honda-tech.com or team-integra.net.

    That is a oxygen sensor my friend.

    It will be upstream somewhere near the manifold.
