Jts Cats

Hi, I need some help, a bit of history, bought an 03 156 JTS its got the 2.0 litre Vauxhall engine, my wife not impressed said she would have bought a Vectra if she wanted one lol !!, we keep getting the Engine management light coming on, spoke to the previous owner, who sir me sir no sir never had a light on, HE LIED !! traced the service history and sure enough January this year Light on and he had it analized as Catalizer 2 above top limit, we are in the same area as this but it wont pin point it , it has done 91000 miles, is the cat worn out ??, has anyone changed one of these, where can I get one from ? I know there are two cats but which is which ? If any one can shed some light or come up with any ideas I would be grateful, We love the car but this light is driving us mad !! thanks Scoobs

Re: Jts Cats

yes its more than likely the cat that is no longer doing its job and the o2 sensor is picking this up, iirc cat number 2 is the right hand one in the down pipe as you look at it from the front of the car, second hand replacement is going to be your cheapest bet and dont forget your old one is worth money dont just throw it in the skip.
