Hi Fred thanksOk if the catalyst has failed internally this would commonly pull a code of p0420
Catalyst efficientcy low
In this case a catalyst cleaner will not help
However if it is an emission issue the issue is with ie near legal limits but still out of specification then yes the car cleaner can help get it through emmisionsAs I don't know the exact code or concern I would advise putting the cleaner in your vehicle then giving it a long run so it's up to temperature as this will help burn out any deposits that may be impacting the catalysts ability to perform
As its worth doing this first as catalysts are very expensive
If you need anymore help or advice on this issue Fred please let me know and I will do my upmost to assist you
If you are satisfied with my answer /advice
