Default Heated oxygen sensor..oil leaking out...

2003 Vue..3.0 liter...150k miles...

It's not too bad..noticed a little smoke coming off the manifold below where this is located..Looks like a sparkplug...Is this something that I need to take care of immediatly?..

Thanks...bo

V6 vue? Needs new vc gaskets. They ALL leak. Any import garage that knows what an opel motor is can fix it. Avg mechanic is not famialar with foreign motors. I donít think even a Honda shop would know the ins and outs of an opel motor.

Thanks for the reply..are you referring to valve cover gaskets..I replace those about 20k mile ago...And all the gasket up through the intake..I cleaned the area around the sensor and drove the car to warm it up..its definitely coming from around the sensor..Suppose replc them might help...Maybe the gasket or o-ring, or whatever they have to seal the connection is shot..

That sensor goes directly into your exhaust manifold. There is no oil that could come out of the sensor itself. It is porcelain and metal. If there's a leak, it's coming from somewhere else.
