Now at 175k the code came back:(
Too bad you got such bad advice earlier. A cat code is a bad cat %99 of the time. It can easily be diagnosed via a scan tool.

In my experience(22 year ASE Master Technicinan w/ L1) 100k is the norm for the cats on most Asian vehicles built with in the last 15-20 years. Yeah there are many that will last longer,but on average 100k seems to be the turning point.

Install a Honda or CARB approved cat and be done with it.(If the cat isnt Honda factory or CARB approved,the light will come back on with-in 3 months to a year. Sometimes sooner)
