Exclamation Cam sensor

Hey guys

I replaced my cam sensor a week ago on my pt cruiser do to stalling and running badly. I got the Chrysler cam sensor bolted it on and all the issues ar gone except now I have a leak coming underneath it and it's creating a pool of oil underneath it in some sort of metal tray further down

Im not sure if I over tightened it and messed up the new gasket or it is not tight enough. I am pretty sure it's tight. Are the gaskets sold separately so I don't have to buy a new cam sensor?

Thanks for your help

You need to remove and inspect to see if you lost the o ring or for cracks form over tightening or what. Your old one still has its seal!

Busa, nobody asked you and nobody needs to know if you threw one away. It doesn't help the original poster one bit.
