Default How many catalytic converters on PT

Ok this might be a silly question but i might as well start with something crazy.
How many catalytic converters are on the PT Cruiser?

I could be calling it something wrong but i know that some vehicles have a cat hooked to exhaust manifold then one a little further down. Not sure if its a pre cat and then the real one or what. i had a 96 chrysler lhs that looked like it had 2.

My 2004 PT cruiser looks like it only has one and has some welding on a pipe underneath but the welding and pipe look almost like it came from factory.
Again sorry for silly question but i couldnt find the information on the board anywhere.

There is only one catalytic converter. The welding your seeing might be around the bung for one of the two oxygen sensors.

Thank you Uptownsport. i actually found a sevice manual to download and just checked it an it only shows one. The weld bead just looked a little off, as in not done by a robot, but looked pretty good. So i guess we could confirm at this point it should only be one. I might need to check with chromenut and see if he has a better manual; this one was like 60mb and i was downloading it while posting. Amazingly it seems like a pretty good manual in pdf form.

I giggled when I read your question, because around here it's possible to get in the car and find NO catalytic converter (theives love them!)

Yup. It's big business here in the car theft capital of the country.
