Sensor is prone to leak in the area of the electrical connector. Replace the sensor.

Thanks for the suggestions on where to look for the leak. It looks like it's the oil pressure sensor - located near the back of the head on the driver's side. The oil is running over the intake manifold. It's a slow leak, fortunately. Is this usually due to failure of the oil pressure sensor itself or the washer/gasket that seals it to the head? Should I replace the sensor or just get a new seal?
