Default Veg oil leak on my manifold

I noticed oil dripping under the truck near my manifold. The leak is coming from the part that looks like a valve stem. It is right beside the check valve. . It only leaks when running oil. System is v4. It is 1.5 years old and has about 12,000 miles on it. Has anyone had this part leak. If it has to be replaced, can it be purchased at a local parts store. I would like to repair over the weekend and get it back on the road since I have a nice coat of grease down the side of my truck.

Thanks for your help.

Thats a shrader valve.
Is it leaking from the threads or from the end of it? Its no different than a valve stem and if your not using it (I removed it and put my autometer pressure sending unit there) you can remove it and put a 1/4 npt plug in it's place.
Its pretty worthless for anything else.
