Leaking oil, ses light, no codes, weird sound.

Ok so my sig truck. With 208xxx miles on it. Just changed the oil about 1000 ago. Is slowly dripping oil. Nothing major. Maybe a drop or 2 a day. Out of the front of the motor. This am it threw a ses when I was cruising down the road. It was running fine. It would stay on for like 10 mins then go out. Then come back on. Then I noticed a weird noise at idle and acceleration. Almost like a missing sound. So when I got back home I used a code reader to check it. And it showed 0 codes. Any input? I really do appreciate the help guys. This forum has been my life saver lately when it.comes to working on my truck.

Sure get a better code reader...

Here's that deal,,, our trucks are not, strictly, OBD-II and a regular OBD-II code reader is pretty much useless. You can't go to a Parts Store either because that's all they have too.

You need a professional tool, most here are fans of the AutoEnginuity for their personal use, or any professional shop will have the right scanner. Retrieving the code that's certainly there (if the light was On there IS a code stored) will be the fastest way to know what's going wrong. The cost of the AE or to have it scanned will usually be cheaper, than buying sensors you don't need trying to solve it, in the long-run.

Ok I'll see if I can get ahold .of a buddy with a shop tomorrow. Thanks for the input. I'm thinking maybe a bad injector? I also added a ccv mod and ww2. In the last month.

Ok so I took my truck to a friends shop today. He has a fancy snap on reader. He said I had a whole bunch of stored codes and my jaw dropped. The he started going thru them. and it was all stuff I deleted like wastegate and aih. There was 2 codes that stuck out to me. One for oil pressure being unfavorable and for the ICP sensor not reading correct pressure. So We ran a test with the reader hooked up WOT for 30 seconds. Pressure should drop to 1600 and stayed steady at 7700. This is all from the snap on reader it told us to do the test. So end of the story we figured its the ICP sensor. So I pulled the connector and the wire plug was full of oil. So I ordered a new Plug. NAPA $175 I found them on evilbay for $35 overnighted for $20. So I hope it will be in Saturday. I will keep updates on weather it works or not. Thanks for help again.

Ya, you need a new ICP sensor, BUT not the one you bought. That particular one, will need an adaptor for it to fit in the stock location. Cut your losses and find an OEM one. Found them on ebay also for 75 buks.

Just buy one from tousley ford parts. They are OEM and going to be the cheapest route. I just put a new one on the engine I rebuilt and I think I paid $120? for one from tousley. Call them up and ask for Mark he will treat you right. Tell him Jake told you to call. They ship fast from what I hear. I have my stuff delivered becuase I am local. Anytime you buy a sensor for any vehicle you should always go to the dealer. You can't trust aftermarket, trust me I have chased problems that were cause by new aftermarket sensors that were put on by customers.

Ok. I'll take that into advisement next time I need a sensor. But I already ordered it thurs night and I'm expecting it Tomorrow. I kinda need the truck for driving around so I don't wanna send it back and wait around for another one. Thanks for the input tho. Very helpful.

So I tired the sensor. No dice:/ how would y'all clean the terminals? They are a little oily on the harness side. I tried contact cleaner. Still a little oily. Thnk it could be a crappy sensor seeing its a cheap one?
