Timing cover appears to be dripping oil on 2nd sensor. Light stays on. Can replace sensors myself. Denso brand only.

Recently had head gaskets replaced. Newer aftermarket AEM replacement panel air filter about 1000 miles ago.

Hello, my name is***** there is oil getting onto the oxygen sensor then that will cause the reading to be off. The sensor needs to be able to have a good external oxygen reading to be able to compare the exhaust to. If it has oil on it then it needs to be replaced with a Denso sensor. Once that is done and the codes are reset the sensor can be checked with a scan tool or you can just see if the light stays off. If you need more help please let me know.
