1992 Caprice Classic 305. Leaking oil near the oil filter.

Customer Question
1992 Caprice Classic 305...

1992 Caprice Classic 305. Leaking oil near the oil filter. The filter is correct and tight, but there is a sensor perpendicular to just above the filter where the seems to be dripping from. I'm trying to identify the name of the sensor so that I can replace it.
