... How many miles on the O2 sensor that is currently installed. The recommended replacement interval is 100,000 mi.
And they often are returning a badly incorrect signal by 60-70K.
Not dead, not totally fubar , but no longer reading correctly.

My suggestion would be to replace both O2 sensors and see if that fixes the problem. They are both way overdue anyway. ACDelco sensors are probably priced best at rockauto.com or Amazon. The #1, upstream, sensor is ACDelco 213-3207, GM PN 12592592. The #2 (downstream) sensor is ACDelco 213-3139, GM PN 12585999.

Aftermarket sensors are also available at RockAuto and Amazon or at most local parts stores.

Note: Your gas mileage might even improve. The ECM uses the #1 sensor signal to adjust the air/fuel ratio and a deteriorated sensor can affect the signal.

I had the P0420 code for a while. I replaced my downstream O2 sensor 4 weeks ago and the code has not come back.

I bought the Denso for $52 @ Advanced Auto Parts and used their $20 off $50 code. There was a $10 rebate @ AAP at the time. Cheap fix even without the rebate.
