If you are not sure of the year just read the info on the sticker under the hood. It will say something like this car meets federal emissions standards for (model year) etc. If you can't find that there's a sticker on one of the front door frames (usually driver's side) with the production date. (example 04/95). Usually the model year splits with July being the same year and August being the next model year. If all else fails you can take the full vin to a dealer (possibly Google?) and they can tell you EVERYTHING about the car right down to which plant it was built at.

As for the 02 sensor, bank #1 is the side of the engine with the #1 cylinder and bank #2 is the other side. For a front drive car stand in front of the car and see which valve cover is closer to the drive belts. That's bank #1 and #1 cylinder is the one closest to the belt as well. 1, 3, 5 on that side and 2, 4, 6 on the other bank.

O2 sensors are listed as bank 1 or 2, sensor 1, meaning the one that is closest to the engine. Sensor 2 is after the cat converter. On a dual exhaust there are two sensors in front and two after the cats. In a single exhause there are two sensors up front and only one after the cat.

Usually the O2 sensors are the last things to change because they seldom go bad. What the code probably means is there's another problem like that skip or the smoke, which needs to be fixed first.

Let me point out that there are probably 4 temp sensors for the coolant so getting the right one is critical to part of your problem. There's one for the computer, one for the red "hot" light, one for the dash gauge, and yet another for the cooling fans.

The next questions is what color the smoke is? Black, blue, white? Are any of the fluids low? (oil, coolant, brake fluid, trany fluid, etc) this is a clue as to where the problem is.

Give us more details and we'll see what we can do for you.

Just a Quick Up-Date, Yesterday My Car Caught on Fire......
Don'y Know Why, All I Know is Well I Think it Started From Under The Hood.
There Was No Warning, I Didn;t See Smoke, Someone in Front of Me Stoped Short, I Hit The Breakes They Went Stright to The Fool, & Pulled to The Left, Them Someone From Behind Flashed Their Lights Pulled Up Next to Me & Told Me
"YOUR CAR IS ON F'ING FIRE"...... {I Was on I-95 Left Lane} So I Go to Pull Off, Get Off on Broad St Off Ramp,
Lose Power Truned Off Car Grabed My Phone, Whent to Get Out of Car & The Car Was Surrounded in Flames.
I Jumped Out Just in Time, if I Was in Ther For 15 More Sec The Car Would Have Blown With Me in it.....
