Yes, most cars and trucks have 3 cats when they are V6's or V8's. Yoy have one cat on each header bank and then right after the two headers become one there's one more.

Good luck

Volkswagon jetta 2002. Won't pass smog. All sensor readings are good but visual exhaust gas fails


Check your catalytic converter. If required replace it. In addition check for engine valves. Faulty valves results in partial opening of cylinder volume during burning of fuel and result in dark sooth from exhaust.

My 1990 chevy astro van didn't pass smog. Paperwork says it failed the following; Ignition timing: 99 ATDC. Also, ASM Emission Test Results; 15mph HC (PPM) max is 122 measured 127, 25mph max is 102...


the smog test looks like the engine is miss firing, that could cause the timing to be out of whack also, try a old fashioned tune up, new spark plugs, wires, and filters also replace the PCV valve. any time you see the NO that high suspect a miss fire.

PCV valve failed visual inspection during smog test, but the car passed physical smog test. How to replace 2002 Ford Escape PCV valve assembly?


remove the hose to the PCV and It simply pulls out and a new one is pushed in and hose is inserted back on. It's kind of like a cork. I can not believe they check for visual inspection. Here in SC, we don't have inspections. But anyways, GOOD LUCK

I hadnt heard of a universal catalytic converter being illegal to install besides they do sell them. Check with autozone i have bought many from them tell them you want a universal catalytic converter for your vehicle the price may surprise you it should be alot cheaper than what you just quoted.
