The oxygen sensor actively measures the exhaust output from the engine in order to determine the proper mixture for the car. If you are having trouble adjusting the mixture on your car to proper levels, there is a high chance that you may have a faulty oxygen sensor. The oxygen sensor is located before the catalytic converter because the air/fuel mixture ratio cannot be accurately calculated after the exhaust gases have been processed through the CAT. It's also highly recommended that you check out our Pelican Technical Article on Replacing Oxygen Sensors.
The exhaust manifold brings the exhaust gases from multiple cylinders into one pipe. Each manifold is designed to work with the engine's back pressure, and upgrading to headers is a common performance upgrade.
The exhaust pipes carry the exhaust gases from the manifold out to the back of the car. If you are replacing a muffler or catalytic converter check your pipes for cracks, breaks, slits or areas where they might have been crushed. Always replace the exhaust gaskets with new ones when working on your exhaust system.
