Arrow Rodeo 3.2V6 idle and acceleration problem

Hi Folks,

Im a newbie to this forum from across the pond (Scotland) and I have a problem with my Rodeo (called a vauxhall Frontera over here).

I need to give you some background first ! Ive owned a 1999 Rodeo 3.2 V6 manual for 6 years and just sold it and bought a 2004 3.2 V6 to replace it.

My old V6 was the older style engine (with a throttle cable) and my new one is the newer drive by wire engine.

Ok - my new car is sometimes a little difficult to start, and compared to my older V6 has a rougher idle and is hesitant on acceleration . I have also had a P0430 fault code (Catalytic convertor bank 2 fault).

My new car only has 19K miles on the clock and I took it to my local dealer who was more than useless ! This is quite a rare car over here.

I have an OBD cable and had alook at what the ECU is up to and heres a summary.

O2 Sensor -
Both pre cat sensors switch back and forward fine
Bank 1 post cat sensor reads around 0.8v and remains reasonably steady
Bank 2 post cat sensor reads around 0.3V and has small spikes up to 0.8v everynow and then.

Long term fuel trim on bank 1 is around +8%
Long term fuel trim on banlk 2 is around +2%

My first thoughts were that it could be a leaking inlet manifold gasket but at 19K miles that seems early ! Then I started to think that the bank 2 post cat O2 sensor could be faulty confusing the ECU.

What do you think ??
What should the post cat sensors be reading ??

Thanks in advance for any help you can give .

Kevin

Heres a few pictures comparing bank 1 with bank 2 . It shows the pre cat O2 sensor (top left), the post cat O2 sensor (top right), the short term fuel trim (bottom left) and long term fuel trim (bottom right).
