No, a ticking noise could be lifters, rods, piston slap or who knows what else without hearing it.

Will an bad oxygen sensor make your car not run or start?

No, it will run poorly but it will start and run.

Can a oxygen sensor make your car smoke?

Not by itself. On newer cars, the oxygen sensor can tell the computer to richen up or lean out the air fuel mixture. It could cause a little, almost unnoticeable amount of extra smoke if it was calling for an extremely rich mixture. If you have a gasoline engine and there is a lot white smoke coming from the tail pipe then your engine is either running excessively rich or has a coolant leak and is burning water (some white smoke is normal in the winter, because the engine runs richer due to the cold). If the smoke is black then the engine is burning oil.

Will an o2 sensor make a car stall?

I do not know the complete answer. Usually, as the oxygen sensor is failing, it will cause the car to run rich, so that your exhaust gets blacker. If it totally fails, then the computer will go into a default mode (limp mode), and without having feedback from the sensor, it will make the car run at a fixed rich setting, again making the exhaust blacker. I am also hunting for an answer since my car is stalling and the check engine indicates a faulty downstream oxygen sensor. Since it is $85, I would love not to have to replace it. yes an 02 sensor will make a car stall replaced both on my 2000 zx3 now fixed much better gas millage to

What sensor controls fuel injection?

There are multiple sensors used to control fuel injection in an engine. Depending on the year, make, and model or the vehicle, there could be upwards of 20 sensors used to determine the amount of fuel injected into an engine.For most modern cars, the primary sensors, which the computer uses to determine fuel needs, are the Oxygen (O2), the Mass Air Flow (MAF), and the Crank/Cam positions sensors.The O2 sensor measures the amount of oxygen in the post combustion exhaust stream, and determines if the engine is running lean (not enough fuel) or rich (too much fuel).The MAF sensor measures the amount of air coming in through the vehicle's intake manifold, and determines the amount of fuel needed for the volume of air the engine is moving.The Crank/Cam position sensor measures the position of either the crankshaft or the camshaft, and tells the computer if the engine is running or not; if this sensor is not working, the fuel injectors will not deliver fuel to the engine.
