How many catalytic converters on the car
My car has an automatic transmission.

A: This vehicle will have one or two catalytic...

This vehicle will have one or two catalytic converters since it only has one bank of exhaust. It is very unlikely that this vehicle even has two catalytic converters. It will, however, have two oxygen sensors for every one catalytic converter. If your vehicle has two oxygen sensors then it will only have one catalytic converter.
