I have the SE model with the 2.5 L V6 DOHC engine. I noticed wet oil under the engine recently and when I investigated under the car I see a sensor screwed into the rear of the engine block towards the drivers side and it appears to be leaking from there. Although, I cannot be sure. Looking up towards the valve cover looks dry. The sensor I see looks to have an 1-1/8 hex on it. What is this sensor? My first thought is that it is the oil pressure sensor but my service manual says that is next to the oil filter. Any other common cause for oil leaks in this area? The Y-pipe and burning at which I can smell at stop lights and when idling. I know sensors like that can leak quite a bit when they go bad. Help!
have the same problem?
