oil leak from IPR valve

I just took my truck to ford who told me that the oil leakin from the top rear of my engine was normal for the 6.0. I'm new to the powerstroke but that sounded like bull to me. I've spoke to a couple of people who said its probably the o-ring on the ipr valve thats leakin and i should just replace the valve. What do you all think, as i am sure you are all more experience with this engine than i am. Thanks for the input.

More than likely the leak is from the ICP sensor which is mounted right next to the IPR on your model year truck. The ICP sensor is a well known pattern failure. READ THIS for more details. FYI I have never seen an IPR leak.

(ford_doctor) Thanks for the quick response. I tried looking under my hood for the sensor, it seems I may have to remove a couple of things to get at it. The sensor is relatively cheap at about $120, so i'll probably just get and replace it. Thanks again.

The sensor is on the back of the engine so it doesn't really stand out. I think this is the sensor which when replaced needs the pig tail replaced also due to oil contamination. Do get it replaced because when the wiring harness also goes bad and if it acts like mine you are in for the ride of your life and you don't want that.

So after i examined my engine compartment yesterday i also noticed some oil residue around the (eot sensor or eot switch perhaps) the front valley on top of the engine behind the oil filter. I checked to see if the oil filter housing was leaking and it wasnt. But i think this is an additional leak i am having since the 2 components are far apart.

I am not experiencing and drivability issues or power issues as of yet just these 2 oil leaks. Does anyone know how severe these 2 problems can eventually lead?

US...good Q, with no easy answer. Unfortunately ICP on 03's & 04 w/03 motor is in a really bad place (lousey design) Reports here how to DIY if u decide to tackle job. FDR. link shows running issues from bad icp.

Some oil leaks you can spot, but others can be real PIA. If one is creative with lots of patience u might be able to pin point where all the oil leaks are. Good luck!
