Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

P0152 sets when the left (front bank) upstream sensor is responding slowly. this can be the sensor or wiring but it may be an issue with the way the engine is running. A vacuum leak, fuel system issue, exhaust leak, or possibly an engine mechanical issue could be the cause of this.

Was any actual testing done?

Where did the replacement sensor come from?
