oil pressure relief valve leaking?

On the front of the engine on the drivers side simetrical to the oil filter there is an anodized yellow looking thing that has 2 hoses going into it and oil is leaking out of it very quickley like 1 drop a second. What is that thing and why is it leaking!!!

Its definatly oil. So is what your getting at is thats the fuel pump and the leak doesnt have anything to do with each other and the oil is just trailing off of it?

the fuel pump is brand new like a month old (i didnt install it, the previous owner did) i havent looked at it much but could it be some other gasket that the oil is leaking and is just trailing off at the fuel pump?

yes the spacer and the gaskets are there. but to my surprise i found out that the oil is leaking from the seal between the cast aluminium and the steel sheet metal cup. Is there a reason for this is? is it fixable?

That seems like a return because it isnt very old. And when I unbolt it are springs going to fly out?

I have a brand new electric fuel pump would anyone suggest that I use that or should I stay with a mechanical one.

what exactly is the fuel pressure regulator? the name is kind of obvious but how much do they cost? and how do I rig it up? and can i just bolt a plate over the hole where the old pump was?
