How mamy converters does a 1998 Lexus es300 have and what are the corrects names? I was told they have 3.

FYI--Car engine isn't breathing and will not go past 2000rpm....Replaced radiator side converter as well as bottom converter and egr valve.

My car has 181000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

The one closest to radiator is bank 1 sensor 1. The one by firewall near manifold is bank 2 sensor 1. The one at Y pipe is bank 1 sensor 2. Your vehicle has only 3 convertors.
