It has a lot to do with what aftermarket unit you get, most were built into the front pipe and you have to replave the whole unit others you can cut the pipe before and after and fit the new one in with clamps, others come with universal fitting that need to be figured out, good luck

My 2002 grand am se it will not pass inspection ,there is no ckeck engine on .my 025 not ready


You did not give enough information about what you did not pass on emissions. Usually it is the co2. If that is the case, it is either the sensors at the catalytic convertor need replacing, or the catalytic converter itself. You can get sensors at the wrecking yard but NOT catalytic converters.

How many oxygen sensors does a 1997 pontiac grand am have and how would i know which one needs to be replaced,the car is idling high. I also need to replace the exhaust manifold gasketand i was asked was...


Your vehicle will have 2 O2 sensors. One before the catalytic converter and one after. replacing the O2 sensor will likely not solve your high idle issue. An O2 sensor that has gone bad will likely set a code and turn on the check engine light. Is the check engine light on?

I assume you have a 3.1 liter V-6?

The left exhaust manifold will be the one closest to the radiator. The righ will be the one closest to the firewall.

O2 sensor location 1997 pontiac grand am 2.4 4 cyl auto trans


BANK 1 SENSOR 1 IS THE ONE IN THE EXHAUST MANIFOLD. BANK 2 SENSOR 2 IS BELOW THE CATALYTIC CONVERTER.

P0171 SHOULD GO AWAY WITH A GOOD O2 SENSOR BUT DO CHECK FOR VACUUM LEAKS TO BE SURE. 3.1/3.4L ENGINES HAVE A BAD DESIGN INTAKE MANIFOLD GASKET, THE LEAK OIL, COOLANT, AND AIR.

you're having the same problem i had with my 99 isuzu rodeo 2 wd 3.2 i paid a muffler guy over $600 to replace those catalytic converters, if you're good at welding you could do the welding yourself after buying the catalytics, basiclly i seen them just cut them off and welded them back on
