I can't find the catalytic converters in my 2004 GMC Savana…

Customer Question
I can't find the...

I can't find the catalytic converters in my 2004 GMC Savana 1500 series 6 cylinder

Mechanic's Assistant: Has the vehicle been "scoped out"?

No but I was told by my mechanics that I had to pee for 200 code after I replaced all of my 02 census it was running fine and now all of a sudden it's bogging down bad and won't stay running

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Savana 1500 yourself? What have you tried so far?

I caught out what I thought was my catalytic converter cuz I was just going to replace it with pipe because all I need is a safety inspection on my van and I think the only ended up being a resonator

I installed for new O2 sensors on my GMC Savana 1500 series 2004 afterwards the engine light came on again so I brought it to my mechanic and the codes came up for catalytic converters I accidentally cut out the resonator and now I've noticed by looking on the layer that I don't even have a catalytic converter and it's showing my what I've looked at that I should only have one but he told me I had to codes for catalytic converters it was running fine but for some reason he even mentioned to me if it started biking down they could possibly be clogged but now that I've looked I don't even have oneCould it be that my muffler is what's all clogged up
