Leaking Oil Around my Oil Filter, Loosing A lot of Oil - Bad Pressure Sensor?
So I have been noticing a lot oil on my power steering hose, oil filter, trackbar and tierod adjustment bar. It seems to be coming from the oil filter, but do my own oil changes and I know it cant possibly be coming from there (I oil the rubber gasket and close it tight).
So I have been doing some research and found that the Oil Pressure Sensor sits above the oil filter and after some time will fail and loose oil.
Here's the problem, the gauge is working fine, and since my last oil change I noted that in 700 miles (give or take) I lost at least a quart of oil.
Now my Jeep (with the 4.7) has over 190,xxx miles and I have been using Penzoil Platinum 5w-30 in my last 3 oil changes along with the big Pulator (pl3001 i think) filter. I do not blow white/blue smoke and the engine is running pretty solid for a dub with this many miles. Also, I do not see any oil puddling under my Jeep.
I also checked my power steering situation and it does not seem to be loosing any fluid, so I am pretty sure my high pressure lines are not leaking.
Here is a photo of the underside of the engine - and you can see oil wetness all over the place.
My question is, can all this be coming out of a leaky Presure Sensor?
