Hi There, Yes, an exhaust manifold is a separate component of the exhaust system that is mounted to the engine cylinder head. As the exhaust travels from the engine, it passes through the exhaust manifold and then through the catalytic converter. I would recommend having a professional from YourMechanic come to your location to diagnose and replace your exhaust manifold.
