No the converter scrubs the carbons coming off a clean burn. The o2 sensor reads that exhaust mixture before it gets to the coverter and tells the computer to back off on the fuel its to rich down here. And vice versa for lean. The newer cars have o2 sensors before and after the converter to tell how good its controling thr carbons down steam.

The PCV valve in this truck is VERY difficult to replace. The entire intake manifold plenum needs to be removed (and everything on top of it) in order to replace the valve! But in a car this old, it has to be done to eliminate oil burning and smoke in the ehaust. The hose to the PCV valve is probably clogged also. Once I did this, I passed inspection with no problem. Good luck.
PS. I'm talking about a Mitsubishi Montero truck.
