Secondary air injection failure.
Lacking the air injection to the cats will clog them too causing failure.

Any reason that would be a bad idea? I'm mostly hesitant to pull the trigger on that quote because I just had them diagnose and repair another check engine light issue a week ago. Definitely going to try the O2 sensor first though.
Those will work and will pass inspection, I know bc Ive done it.
