Have not seen a 2.4/2.0T (available engines in 2015) with the upstream O2 sensor is in the middle of the heat shield. Having said that, normally
the valve cover leaks oil onto the exhaust and creates smoke as the oil burns off, and the unit where the burnt spot is located is probably just
the downstream sensor.
