Default Oil leak issues.

OK let me start this off correctly. I have an EJ22T engine in my 2004 wrx. The other day I was driving down the road and noticed I had an oil leak. I don't know how long it had leaked or the extent of the leak till I parked it (about a mile from home) I noticed I have a threaded hole about 2 inches aft go the oil pressure sensor. It is parallel to the temp sensor in the coolant crossover. It's on the passenger side of the vehicle. I was told it was an additional PCV breather that came on the ej22 blocks? I don't know. Questions are, is this true and if so it was plugged before and now it is not. Any ideas as to what would act as a good plug, being that in order for a shop to touch it they want the actual part they are installing. Any help? Insight? Knowledge to share with a friend?

I don't know what you're describing. There is no oil on the coolant cross over pipe. Are you talking about the oil pressure sensor. No. 1 in this pic:

The elbow behind 1. That's the location. But I don't have any hoses or anything hanging

Yup, the EJ22Ts had a second crank case breather hose. Here's a diagram of the original setup.



Don't know what you would use to plug it though...

The final question would be is this a probable spot to spew oil from. When I idled it was like a spritz that was constant. I'm assuming if it had a breather it was very similar to valve designed to release pressure and recycle the oil elsewhere. (forgive my for my ignorance)

I've read where some people are using freeze plugs to plug it and that's what I've been. Told was in there originally (when it was built) anyone have any guidance as to what size? I am needing to get my car back on the road and need to get a part to plug it or else it'll spew all my oil again

Plug = Go to the hardware/autoparts store and find something the right size. You can either jam something rubber in the exiting hole, or fit an appropriately sized hose over the port and plug the hose with something metal or plastic.
