Oil Leak

Hello! it's me again bothering everybody with my car! hahaha I'm having this issue with the engine oil :s

Yesterday I noticed a little pool of oil on my garage floor so I checked and realized that it was leaking only when the car is ON (little but continous drops) and is coming out of this piece (I'm guessing it's a sensor):



So I took it off and cleaned it, as shown below:



But now that I placed it back where it was, it's dropping a lot more oil (again, just when the car is ON) and is no longer just drops, but a continous "stream" of oil, I think I already lost half of the oil and I don't know if I can make it on time so I can take it to someone to get it fixed.

Do you think this may be caused because I didn't add that strange white tape (https://www.google.com.mx/search?hl=...mg.VlZa_o0hDwE) when re attaching the sensor??

All your help will be much appreciated, and thank you very much in advance!

Unfortunately I found out that what's wrong is actually the piece where the sensor goes in, in this picture those red lines indicate cracks that this piece has, I think I have to replace the whole thing :S

I'm glad you posted this because I've been having a bad oil leak problem and I'm pretty sure that I'm leaking from the exact place you are too, does anyone know the part name for that? So I can replace it?
