leaking oil, but i dont know what the part is...

Can anyone identify this part that is leaking oil on my jeep? Someone told me the oil pressure sending unit, but when I go to the auto parts store, all they come up with is the oil pressure switch. Its leaking oil where it attaches to the block. I am talking about the part that has the plug going into it and is infront of the oil filter.

The big grey thing to the right of the oil filter is the cam sensor housing. The oil pressure switch and sending unit are the same thing.

It should just be an easy O-ring fix.

It won't be the actual CPS that is leaking but rather the o-ring that is perished where the oil pump drive enters the engine block. The CPS mount on the top of the oil pump drive.
