    My cousin contacted me and asked me about a p0420 code that he is getting on his truck. I read around and found that it could be a bad cat, a bad O2 sensor, a bad engine temp sensor, or a bad fuel pump. He tested the pump today and found the pressure to be 60psi while running, 52 psi when shut off, 44 psi 5 minutes after shut off, and 40 psi 10 minutes after shutoff. So, my question is, does this indicate a bad fuel regulator? Would a bad regulator cause the truck to run lean and therefor throw the code? or is basically a bad cat with that code? I also have a freeze frame from his scan tool that he sent me. Any ideas guys? He cleared the code and it came back a week later.
