Hey Chris==You really need special gauges to check the exhaust gasses. Take it to a garage that haas these gauges. GoodluckJoe Thanks joe, but I just got emmisions, and everything that Arizona emissions testing tests was about 1/2 the limit, where 2 years ago they were less than a 10th. I had the injectors replaced, and changed out the Y-pipe on the exhaust before, but now the gradual problem has given my car a major performance hit, the exhaust is very rich, (in other words in engine not getting enough air). What could be things that would cause that? I use sythetic oil now to help protect, but there is definatly a problem. And lets say it's not compression, what then? Check your EGR valve. A plugged EGR will cause loss of power and will cause the exhaust to smell like rotten eggs.

What sensors are in the exhaust pipe on a 1991 Saturn sc?

The sensor in the exhaust manifold is the oxygen sensor. It measures the amount of oxygen left in the exhaust after combustion. The computer then takes that information and "decides" if the car is running rich or lean. It then adjusts the fuel injectors to keep the emissions at a minimal level.

The Oxygen Sensor on a 1989 Cherokee 4.0L is on the exhaust pipe on the left side of the engine just below the exhaust manifold. You can see it from above but you must replace it from below. It is pretty easy to reach. I recently changed mine and it took only 10 minutes using an O2 sensor wrench.
