ICP and HPOP issues

I have a 2001definitely F-250 that keeps destroying ICP sensors. The problem started about a year ago when I lost about 8 quarts of oil through the ICO sensor in to the engine compartment. I replaced the sensor and it ran fine for about 2 months, then I deployed for 8you months. Since I've been back, I've had to replace the sensor about once a week. I run an edge juice w/ attitude and occasionally get an icp low code. Could the problem be the fluctuating pressure in the high pressure oil system? And if so, would a higher output HPOP fix it? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

what do you mean by destroying icp sensors? how exactly is it being destroyed?

The first time it went bad the harness came off of the sensor and it dumped about 8 quarts into the engine compartment. Now I get a slight smell if burning oil in the cab of the truck after about 500a miles on a new sensor. When i pull the wire harness off the sensor there is oil in the electrical connections and residue running down the side of the sensor.

That certainly is an odd problem.

I mean ICP's go bad, but every week? That's nuts.....

well, you're probably reading an icp low code because of the oil contamination. probably.
you need to view icp pressure, desired icp pressure, and ipr duty cycle with a device capable of doing so. also, make sure that the actual icp and desired icp aren't exactly the same. maybe your icp is too high and blowing through the sensors. it's all i can really think of.
