Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

It sounds like you still have an oxygen sensor related issue. If an inaccurate upstream sensor reports that the engine i running lean when it isn't then fuel will be added and that can make it run rich enough to smoke as you had. The problem could be wiring but is more likely to be caused by the aftermarket oxygen sensor.

If you disconnect the replacement sensor, clear fuel adaptives with a scan tool or a battery disconnect and then drive the car how does it run?

Hi I know I still have a upstream oxygen problem,I have a both o2 sensors oem Mercedes parts .after fuel adaptation car is run smoothly,but not always lay time was fine for 18 miles and staright start overfuel on tragic lights ,sometimes is progressive worst,or not working at all smoth.and sometimes when u plug to scanning system doesn't see sensors at all or they looks like dead .mhow I can check a cables one by one ?i had problem with engine mounts and my catalystic and and manifold get crack (part replaced ) ..if that can cause a wiring problem , or maybe ecu ? My car was remaped in 2012 is weird two new sensors and still that game ....regards

You said the sensor that was replaced was replaced with an aftermarket Bosch sensor.

What P codes are currently setting?

Can I get the VIN and the part number of the sensors used?

Ask Your Own UK Car Question
UK Auto Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

Possible causes for this code setting are the sensor itself, wiring and connections, and the engine controller. It's not likely to be the engine controller but possible.

Has the wiring not been tested?

Wiring gone be tested today ,what about sometimes star diagnostic see sensors ,sometimes not or they are look like no active ? Still u will sugest a wiring problem or ecu ?
UK Auto Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

The possible causes for this are wiring, the sensor and ECM. If there is a wiring issue then there isn't going to be a usable sensor signal which may be what you are describing. A scan tool will always see the voltage on the signal wire no matter what but it may not be a usable signal.

How to diagnose it
UK Auto Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

The sensor wiring needs to be tested for high resistance/open circuits, preferably with a load test, and the circuits need to be checked for a short to power or ground.

Hi today I get message from my garage and car doesn't want to start at all ...so it's doesn't looks like a sensors when the engine is cold they go to open loop....any idea
UK Auto Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

A no start condition won't be related to the oxygen sensor issue.

What happens when they try to start it?

They've attempted to diagnose the problem but are unable?
