ICP sensor plug full of oil ?

I was looking around for all my oil leaks today and noticed the plug on my ICP sensor was wet so I pulled it off to look and it was filled with oil both in the plug and the top of the sensor. So do I need to change it or is it ok like this or ?

I have read that it needs to be changed and some guys say just remove it and plug the hole and the module will reset to factory default so I am not sure what to do here.

Thanks for any and all help.

Replace the icp and pig tail with oem parts. When connecting the pigtail to the harness solder all connections then use heat shrink. Butt connectors are junk and lead to corrosion and high resistance. Search sunrise ford here and you can get discounted parts.

just clean the connector out with electrical cleaner, then get a new icp.

most don't need to replace the connector.

Yea, I don't know where all the "Replace the ICP connector" is coming from but, No! (unless the insulation is failing and while that can be an issue with the IPR connector, the ICP is in a different place and it's wires don't often do that).

BUT, for OIL??? - Certainly not... Oil is Not A Problem in an electrical connection.
