Check Engine Light "code 67" (2000 integra LS)

I looked up this code and it means:

"Catalyst system Efficiency Below Threshold malfunctioning or defective catalyst system"

So what part needs to be replaced?? 2000 Integra LS (auto)

Thanks
Tom

I'm guessing the catalytic converter.

The acura dealer said that the cat converter is made to last over 10 years and that it couldn't be bad already. They said it could be a lot of things ranging from a bad o2 sensor (at $350 to replace) to various other things. That's why I posted this message. I don't want to give my car to acura so they can perform random repairs at $350 a pop to see what makes the
light go off..

No O2 sensor on that retailer's site..

Is the O2 sensor easy to change?? Is it something I can
do myself if I jack up the car or does it require special tools?

Thanks
Tom

I reset the light twice and it comes back on within 20 miles of driving. I didn't upgrade anything so that's not a issue. This whole thing started happening after I ran the car out of gas one day and tried to keep starting the car to see if I could make it to the next exit. The car spuddered and stalled alot but I made it to the gas station. I bet I killed the O2 sensor with the misfires or I clogged my fuel filter when I ran the gas totally dry. The car runs fine and the mileage is 30mpg so I'm not sure whether to ignore the light. A bad O2 sensor isn't hurting anything. I can't see how a bad gas cap seal hurts anything. The Cat converter is supposed to last 10 years.. So I'm not sure what to do. The O2 sensor costs $350 to replace so I'm not really motivated to start replacing things that cost a lot of money that may not even fix the light. I've read on the internet that other people have chased this yellow light to death and not figure out how to get it to stay off..
