Default help!

hey guys,

something leaking on my dads 04 ranger, its got 100k miles, 4.0 4wd "edge" model and i dont think i've run across something like this before. the cars been great, never had a leak of any sort before and we take very good care of the cars in our family

the leak is coming from what looks like a sensor of some kind, its located right under/by where the intake hose meets the throttle body

attached is a pic, hopefully it can help

What is it leaking? I'm still kinda new to these trucks, but in my experience with other engines is that sometimes sensors can leak. Diesels have a vac. sensor that the seals go out and leak a ton of diesel. If its a sensor, replace it and see if it goes away.
