Ok what you are describing really is consistent with a sticking fuel injector which is over spraying.
This often will not show a code and is a common fault on these vehicles.
I know you have replaced one injector but this sounds like you either replaced the wrong one or there was more than one bad one.
The best and most effective way to diagnose the injectors is with a power balance test.
