Yea, I can't stand the autocorrect on my DroidX. Hicklish is my primary mode of communication.

I got two things in the mail yesterday. My ELM327 bluetooth adapter and this:

It went on a little squish, but not really noticeable.

The adapter works great. I pulled 2 codes. a P0449 and a P0420.. which leads me to a question. In October, I had my cat replaced with a universal one, and the guy at the shop said it could throw a code. Is it possible that'* whats causing the P0420?

i would guess probably. you can get the down stream sensor tuned out or ive seen replicators if you need to meet emissions.

No emissions here, so I'm not going to worry about it.

Would a bad downstream O2 sensor cause lower gas mileage? I've noticed lower mileage lately.. I was thinking it could either be that, or I have another leak somewhere..
