Q: Can I drive my car with code po430 code

asked by on

I need to work one day before I can get it fixed it's about 12 miles will it be ok to drive once with that code

A P0430 code indicates the catalyst efficiency has fallen off. If there are no other codes indicating misfires and if the check engine light is not blinking, you should be OK to drive your car. If you have trouble scheduling a convenient repair, you can call YourMechanic to have a mechanic come to your home or office to inspect or replace your catalyst.
