massive oil leak. DS front on valve cover

1994.5 PSD.

Oil is running out at a steady stream from under the ICP plug. Driver side front portion. Its on the valley side, but under the valve cover. Basically there is a gold plate that has a recessed allen head bolt in it below the ICP. Its running out there. A lot of oil in a steady stream. I limped it home, but its not drivable at this point until its handled.

Its not coming from the HPOP, but right below where those lines run.

CCV maybe plugged? Or, something else maybe? No CEL on. No other issues. Just started today after around 200mi of driving around.

I know the plug you are speaking of, although I've never removed it or seen it leak. It may be another HP oil rail plug. It probably needs another o-ring, and if so use Viton. Cheers!

Well, I found it. It was the lower hex portion that the ICP screws into. It was leaking where it threads into the high pressure rail on the head. It must have backed off a little. FWIW, I lost almost a full gallon of oil out of the motor.
