I never saw a converter monitor in any Saturn I owned. There are O2 sensors before and after the converter in the exhaust system, and they can go bad causing a service engine light. They look like little plugs, screwed into the exhaust pipe, and have wires coming from them.

Where do I find the o2 sensor , bank one

well a good rule to know is that all (bank 1) sensors are (befor) the catylic converter, usually in the exhaust manifold, of just after it exits the engine.
all (bank 2) sensors will be located on the catylic converter or just after it. these sensors are used to determin the fuel burning efficiency of the engine, and the computer will use these readings to either give the engine more fuel (en-rich), or take fuel away (lean). if all these sensors are bad it will cause the computer to use a default value to keep the engine running, and use more fuel over the long haul. but none of these will keep it from starting or even running. hope this helps you.

Is there liquid inside the catylic converter?

There's not supposed to be, but if the vehicle is used on regular short runs with no chance to fully warm up then there can be a build up of condensation inside the cat.

I have been told the upper catylic converter on my 96 acura 2.5tl is clogged. Can I repair without having to purchase the whole upper manifold assembly

I have found that most of the time when one says it is clogged they are wrong! if this is the problem, unbolt it and see if the car runs better.
