07 F250 6.0L leaking

I have a leak that has just developed. It took a lot of searching but I found that it is coming from something I can't identify. Mounted to the firewall just below the break fluid resvoir and master cylinder and slight ly inboard is a metal almost filter looking device. With the right yoga position I can see what apears to be oil dripping from where the filter looking device mounts to its adaptor/housing/mount thing.

Can someone help me identify it so that I can attempt to replace it before I loose to much oil. At this point it appears that I've only lost about a pint of oil and it only leaks when the engine is running. Any help is appreciated!

Can you get a pic.? Is there a hose running into the top of it?

I did some more searching last night and found that the leak is actually coming from a connection of one of my power steering hoses. The piece that the master cylinder attaches to also has 2 metal power steering lines that come out and go to a hose feeding the in and out port of the power steering pump. The upper most line is the one that is leaking.

Had I checked ALL of my fluids I would have noticed that power steering was low. I put some seal conditioner in the resivoir and filled the resivoir to "full" line. I'll keep an eye on it to see if the conditioner/sealer works. If not I found the replacement hose on Autozone for arround $20.

Thanks for the reply dhanna6powerstroke. Also FYI....the part I was looking for identification of is actually attached to the same mechanism that the master cylinder is attached to and not directly to the firewall as I previously stated. All I can read on the thing is the workds compressed gas.

Thanks

Bryan
