Having problem with 02 sensor in magnum. have replaced it about three months ago

Are you losing cooling from you reserve tank?
Are you burning oil?

TOP off the coolant tank
Make a tape mark with the day and start monitor coolant loss.

After 15 minutes of ran time.
Have a friend to monitor for white smoke.

A vehicle will a leaky (no blown yet) will destroy O2 sensor.

Replaced thermostat on pontiac sunfire now there's smoke coming from coolant tank

Sounds like you have a leaking head gasket or damage to the engine from when it overheated.
A leaking head gasket can cause compression to leak into the cooling system and pull coolant into the cylinders which is burned out the exhaust. It does not have to leak into the oil.
A shop would check for exhaust gas in the cooling system and run a compression test on the cylinders.

Mazda MPV minivan drove about a mile andsmoke started rolling out from under hood. I went under car and it looks like a plastic container has 3 holes in it. What could this be? What's that tank?

Coolant Expansion Tank or Windshield Fluid Container

Wouldn't that be something your familiar with,
or you never check things under the hood?

1997 z-71 Cooling problem, changed thermostat but no water circulation. It got pretty hot when all this suddenly happened. truck starts and runs no white smoke.

Make sure its full of water or coolant and look at your water pump.There is a weep hole on it.Weep hole= really small hole on top side your water pump.If there is water coming out that hole and im sure there is your water pump pump needs to be replaced.If this is your problem no worry its really easy.Message me if you need instructions.

What is p - 1450 code

Hello, This ia a code saying your vehicle can not bleed fuel tank Vacuum. You can have a loose fuelcap or a hole in the venting system for your gas tank. It is even possible that the gas tank has a hole in it. Or a solenoid is not opening and venting.

First, tighten your fuelcap and if the Codelight is still on, have Autozone or someone wipe the problem from the memory. If nothing seems to help, take your vehicle to a shop having a "Smoke" machine.

The "Smoke" machine is the only way to find leaks in some of the vent tubing.

Hello my 1994 camry toyota has a problem holding the water. We replaced the thermostat,fan switch,radiator cap, and it keeps comsuming the water. What do you think the problem might be? Javier

Javier, have you checked the coolant overflow tank for holes, cracks, or loose hose? When the engine in your car heats up, the coolant expands. The coolant overflow tank (located near the radiator) takes up any coolant that is forced out of the radiator. If the tank is damaged or not connected to the radiator correctly, the coolant will not siphon back into the cooling system when the engine cools off.

My jeep grand cherokee is smoking really bad. Black smoke and it also skips. What might this be?

Black smoke is too much fuel. Bad spark plug, or plugs, bad spark plug wire or wires, bad injector, allow engine to cool, pull the spark plugs. does one look bad? Replace one or all. Plug wires don't last forever. An injector can stick open an pass too much gas :)
