    Too bad. Sounds like oil somehow got onto/into the PCM wiring harness and wicked its way into the PCM itself.

    There are PCM rebuilders on the internet--I think there's one in the Miami area that offers a lifetime guarantee for something like $250 bucks.

    Pull the connector for the power steering pressure switch and see if that fluid is present. It's common for those switches to fail and force the fluid into the harness. The most common failure when that happens is the power steering fluid is forced into the upstream O2 sensor which causes multiple repeat failures of the sensor, until someone realizes that there is fluid in that connector.
