If you're not getting a rotten egg smell, the catalytic converter is probably fine. I'd just check into replacing the sensor, even though it does seem odd to have an O2 sensor go bad that soon. What was the code you got?
Sorry i dont check this site to often.
I am not throwing any codes since the reset :think:
I have a k&n Lifetime Washable filter that i clean every month.
I might pull my plugs and see what's going on. Today i smelled Pure gasoline in my car twice second time it was after i was stepping on it to merge around some guy doing 20 in a 50 i pulled over in a parking lot and checked everything and no leaks or anything. Either i have an exhaust leak or running way to rich or i have a gas leak. Not really sure whats going on anymore and tired of dumping money in this piece of crap LOL
Hello everyone I have a 2007 compass which won't pass the smog due to check engine code p0420 I replaced both o2 sensors and erased the check engine light at about 50 miles driven the light came back on. I don't think it's the catalytic converter what else can be the problem? Please any answer is appreciated
I don't know how much response you'll get posting in a thread this old. Some information on code p0420 from the factory service manual:
P0420-CATALYST EFFICIENCY (BANK 1)
Theory of Operation
The catalyst monitor uses the signals from both the upstream and downstream O2 sensors to detect aging of the catalyst. As a catalyst ages, it loses some of its oxygen storing capacity. As a result, part of the untreated exhaust gases can break through the catalyst and causes the downstream O2 sensor to deviate from its neutral (Stoichiometric) position. By observing the downstream O2 signal, the degradation level of catalyst can be detected. In general, the higher the downstream O2 sensor state of change value, the more exhaust gas breakthrough and the lower the oxygen storage capacity of the catalytic converter.
With the ECT above 70 C (158 F), engine RPM between 1400 and 2300, vehicle speed between 64 and 96 kph (40 and 60 mph), and engine run time greater than 3 minutes.
If the final state of change index is within the calibrated fail threshold. Two trip fault. Three good trips to turn off the MIL.

Hi everyone, I have a 2015 compass 4x4. Its making a humming noise that starts at around 10mph and gets louder the faster you go. It sounds like it's coming from the bottom of the car. The noise doesn't change when turning traction control off, 4x4 lock on, or changing gears. I didnt notice...
I live in Alaska, the temps have been in the -10 to -15 range for the last week and my 2014 Jeep Compass (2.4L, 2WD) has been hard to start (not surprising), but even after it has warmed-up it occasionally bogs down while on the highway and won't accelerate. This happened a couple of time this...
So I'm the owner of a 2008 Compass CVT 4x4 2.4L. The car has 110k miles on it and I am on my second real axle because the last one locked up. Whenever I accelerate around a corner too hard, there is a grinding sound coming from the back. I've been to multiple mechanics and to the...
I have a 2018 Jeep Compass Sport. Auto Stop/Start has been causing car to turn off on its own when feature engages at a stop sign or red light. Once off car will not turn over on first try. Usually the second or third try it will turn over. The auto stop/start light will turn on at times on dash...
