Where is your ICP sensor located? In the passenger valve cover or under the turbo? If it's an early 04 engine then it should be under the turbo. If so, unplug it and inspect connector for oil contamination. I'll bet that's what you find. Replace sensor and pigtail if oil soaked and will most likely fix your issue.

Could still be the ICP sensor, you just won't have oil when they're mounted at that location. If it starts doing it again, unplug sensor and see if it goes away. If so, replace sensor.
