Default 2.2L Crankshaft Positioning Sensor needed - also, oil in spark plugs question

Hey all,
I need a crankshaft positioning sensor for my EJ22. If anyone has one laying around from a broken down engine, or knows where I can get one, please respond or PM...

Also, anyone know why I would have oil in my spark plugs? I did a search and the most common response is a leaky valve cover gasket...but I heard head gasket as well. Only driver's side plugs have oil in them.

Thanks!

I'd like to know if there's a way to tell if there's a way to check if its the valve cover or HG.

I've got the same oiling issue

Valve cover gasket. No Doubt.

B:
Is it true the "closest" fluid to the spark plug hole at HG is clooant, while at the VCG is oil?

2nd valve cover idea. Marc, I'm rebuilding an EJ22, I should have a cps for you to borrow if you need.

Unless your car is DOHC, yes.

nice

american - I'd like to just try putting a new one in to see if it helps with my low-idle woes. I'm pretty sure the one in the car is working correctly. If it wasn't, the car wouldn't even turn over, right?

For you, good question. Maybe. What year is your 2.2?

Razor, there's a good write-up on the procedure in the NA forums.
