You have replaced your oxygen sensor on a 2001 highlander with a universal one and you had to use the old connectors but your check engine lite is still on but the car seems to run ok?

See the related question link for your answer. The car will run OK, because it is ignoring the bad sensor and running in what we call "open loop". Performance is not going to be as good, and gas mileage will be affected.

Your Mazda B2500 overheated you replaced the radiator but the coolant will not enter the block and the engine just heads for the red when you have to shut it off It seems as if it could be air-locked?

It is possible that it is air locked. Try squeezing the upper and lower hoses to release any air and make sure the radiator is full, sometimes jacking up the front helps. It could also be a bad thermostat so replace that if you have not done so already.
