Did u change sensor?. Start there.


If the computer threw a code for the O2 sensor, it could be a defective or dirty sensor or something in the system, like an electrical short. If there's oil on the alternator, first, determine what type of oil, e.g., engine oil. If it is engine oil, you could have a leak that's hitting the fan and acting like a spray. Or it could be a stuck PCV valve adding oil to the intake and spraying from there. Have a mechanic diagnose this.
