The system works by looking for a signal in the post-cat sensor that  
'follows' the pre-cat sensor, indicating the cat has stopped  
working.  If garbage in = garbage out, the cat is not doing its job.   
If the sensor signal just goes haywire, doesn't show proper values  
after a certain amount of time, etc...then the sensor is bad.
