    Once it gets hot, is it hard to start?

    Is your engine Fuel Injected?

    BTW, its good to know we're on the right track. Let me know the answers. Then we can take it from there.

    Were there two or one sensors?

    Did you check trouble codes? Some Dodges have two modes for this. One with the engine off, the other with it running.

Depending on the year there are actually 3 o2 sensors starting from the converter and going all the way to theexhaust manifold, usually if one goes bad another one will, in my experience the one closest to the converter and the next one in line are the one I would test.

I have 2005 dodge neon sxt. I've had the camshaft sensor and o2 sensor replaced. Car spits and sputters like it has bad gas. When idling car is fine but when giving gas it sputters

Rather then guessing having diagnostic's run by a qualified repair shop would be your best option . Checking fuel trim's short an long term fuel trim's ,are the O2 sensors switching normally , What's MAP voltage ? Do you know what a MAP sensor is ? The manifold absolute pressure sensor (MAP sensor) is one of the sensors used in an internal combustion engine's electronic control system. Engines that use a MAP sensor are typically fuel injected. The manifold absolute pressure sensor provides instantaneous manifold pressure information to the engine's electronic control unit (ECU) Coolant temp. sensor , Throttle position sensor . If you had to a repair shop , find a better one.

Why does it continue to spit and sputter going uphill?

Spit and sputter can happen because of not enough fuel or air. last thing to check for fuel is the fuel pressure regulator. On the air side would be the the air filter(filthy) or catalytic converters(clogged). on the mechanical side, Could be bad rings, burnt valves. Compression test would find this.

My 2009 pontiac g6 monitor says engine power reduced , the car sputters , and ut only gos 20mph

Well, I doubt more than one sensor is bad, if any.
The trouble codes tell the mechanic what to test, not replace.
The O2 sensors provide data to the engine computer to adjust fuel mixture. You could also have low fuel pressure or something else.

My jeep is acting like it's choking and sputtering.

O2 sensors will not cause this symptom. Have the fuel pressure tested with a special test gauge and also clean the inside of the Mass Airflow sensor with the special spray they make and change out the air filter to the engine if it is dirty.

We have been having horrible gas mileage but the other day All of a sudden the car hesitates, sputters and dies when trying to go into gear.. I was thinking the fuel pump? I have to replace the o2 sensor,...

You replace nothing

You learn how sensors work & how to test

They only get replaced when they fail a test

O2 Sensors get replaced at 100,000 miles or
when they fail before that mileage.

Your best to let a repair shop diagnose & solve your
problems. It will be cheaper than throwing parts at it

My focus has been chugging and will stall when it gets hot. Driving on hot days is impossible as well as passing other cars. We scanned it ourselves and the code tells us that it is burning to rich. We...

CODE ???? If you would like help need to know what code ? P0172 ?
Using a scan tool an checking scan data would be the first thing to do , before replacing parts ! That's a rookie move. What are the fuel trims at ? is the PCM adding ,taking away fuel ? Are the O2 sensors switching rich to lean like thier suppose to. Using a better scan tool an looking at data , an freeze frame data .
