check the thermostat housing, are you sure it coming from the manfold? sometimes if is leaking from the back is teh thermostat housing you'll need a new gasket! Your pistons ring may have gone out because that could be the reason why your blowing white smoke

ya you need a new oxygen sensor, if it's throwing a code, there a tool to get the leakdown test i think you can rent one at autozone. or go to a mechanic shop and get one done
