1st; what is this?
2nd; how much for a new one??
3rd; or take it somewhere to fix and how much??

If thats for an EB, would be like $20 from Repco or the like.
Easy to install, just take the oil filter off to give you a bit more room to move and help see what your doing.
Doesn't need to be rediculously tight either, just a firm nip.....with thread sealant on the thread.

Oil and power steer switches are a common place to find leaks on any car.
