My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello, thanks for writing in about your Ford Mustang. Yes, your car should have down stream O2 sensors (assuming you have the factory exhaust still). This should be located after the catalytic converter. If need some assistance, consider YourMechanic, as one of our mobile technicians can come to your home or office to replace your O2 sensor as necessary.
