03 6.0 ICP help

I still havent gotten my truck fixed and hard finding someone to do it where I can haul it to,noones really close. Anyway,I am trying to do self diagnosis and even posting here before everyone seems to think the ICP sensor is the culprit. Its leaking oil like all get out everywhere.
Question is,I have an inspection mirror etc.Is there an easy way to look and see i9f this is the culprit?Do I need to remove something so I can see it? never dealt with a 6.0 only 7.3's. The sensor is on the back side of the motor somewhere.

here is a bump for you man. My bro had the same problem with his 04 ex. It was leaking a ton of oil out and it was the ICP sensor. You might be able to get a look at it by crawling under it and using your mirror from the back or maybe through the fenderwell.

Is the oil in the valley or just under the truck? If its in the valley, Ive seen the oil coolers leaking before and the oil will be in the valley. You can look from under the truck up towards the bellhousing and block on the driverside and see the ICP sensor. Might not be able to see real good but with a mirror you might.

Yes theres oil in the valley also.Its running down the valley and down the powere steeringa little but the majority is coming down the back of the motor on the passenger side with a little on the drivers side at the back of the motor.

You might spray the valley out with cleaner real good and see if you can tell for sure where in the valley its coming from.

Im gonna try that.I just crawled under it with a mirror and saw the ICP sensor,it has a small heat shield covering or something and it is bone dry,no oil on it at all.
Back to the drawing board I guess,its not coming from there,any other ideas??

Does it look like it might be coming from the timing cover area and running to the back? I have seen the timing covers leak.

I just cranked it and let it run for a minute.It looks to be coming from somewhere near under the oil filter area.As soon as I started it and a few seconds later it started building up more first from the drivers side of th o filter on screws in the valley.It started leakin oil from the front on the ground first then the back,It ran aprroximately 2 minutes and pumped out a half quart of oil onto the ground.Make any sense? I dont know what it could be.

I had to replace the oil cooler assembly on a 6.0 van, for the same issue. They do offer individual o-rings but the one I did the coolr itself had a crack in it some where. Hope all this helps.
