This depends on which engine you have. The 2.4L has two, a front and rear. The 2.7L has a front left and right, then a rear as well.

The first 4 attachments below are of the 2.4L. The last ones are of the 2.7L.

Here are some guides that will help with testing the converter if you need that:

Hi,

I'm not sure which engine you have. If it is the 4 cyl, there will be one which is part of the exhaust manifold. See pic 1 There will also be one located down from there in the exhaust system.

___________________

If you have the V6, there will be one on each of the exhaust manifolds and one after them lower in the system. See pic 2.

___________________

If you look at pic 3, it shows the downstream catalytic converter in the exhaust system.

So, if you have a 4 cyl, you have two. If you have the 6 cylinder, you have 3.
