Detection Item:
Catalist System efficency below threshold (bank 1)

Isaac just had that problem. Toyota replaced everything under warrenty, because of some laws in Cali. Go to Toyota and have them check it out. thumbsup

I think the problem was the rear O2 sensor on the exhaust after the cat. But I don't remember, anyway, check with a dealer.
