      I have a caddy with an ABA swapped in it and there is an oil leak at the CPS. Is this fairly common? At first I thought it was because I was missing the o-ring, which I was. I have since add one and it didn't seem to stop the issue.

      Any insight?

      No, it's not a common failure.

      Make sure you've the correct O-ring. Make sure the sensor and hole are clean, and the sensor isn't damaged from being installed without an O-ring. Install the sensor with the O-ring and a little sealant.

      I think I read about it once when I was having the same problem. Anyway he used sensor safe silicone and it fixed his problem. I tried the same thing and the problem went away and that was a long time ago.
