How many miles on the ICP sensor? Check for oil leaking at ICP and the pigtail wire harness, replace the ICP and wire harness if bad.

While you have the engine wire harness disconnected, check over the whole harness for chafing/damage.

Also send your heads out to be checked for cracks and warpage.

I replaced the icp at 100,000 but after reading the articles. I will check the icp and harness. Thanks!

The International dealer here in Houston was nice enough to give me the number to the shop that does all their head work. The guy at the shop said it would be around 100 each head with machine work and to check for crack's. That seems like a pretty fair deal to me. But I have never had head work done so I don't know. What do you guys think?
