3 NEW Oil Pressure Sensor Leaking???

I have a serious but strange problem here. I have gone through 3 oil pressure sensors on my 2005 ford 6.0L. The sensor I am referring to is the sensor right in front of the oil filter housing. It will leak strait down the center where the contact prong is located. My first sensor lasted 300 miles started leaking, replaced it and started leaking again 4000 miles later, changed it monday (9/24) and now its leaking again 40 miles later. Any ideas?

Threads in the housing are probably cracked. Take it out and use some sort of oil resistant thread sealer. Don't get any in the end of the sensor but don't use it lightly.

Oil pressure senders leak pretty commonly on a 6.0. If it is the threads that are leaking then yes a sealer will work. If the sensor is failing internally over and over I'd check for high base oil pressure

I also read recently that oil wicking into the connector can cause repeat sensor failures. It's worth putting a new connector on if the concern isn't caused by high base oil pressure.
