It depends on where the leak is coming from. If it looks like it is coming from the side of the valve it might be best to replace the valve. Attempting to repack a pressure valve can lead to a bigger problem if not done right. You might want to call a pro.

If the oil sending unit is leaking oil by the inside of the component, then I don't know of any way to fix that other than removal and replace with another one. If it is leaking by the threads, then you can try teflon tape to seal that. Also make sure it is leaking from the sending unit and not leaking down from the valve cover.

Hot water barely comes out of faucet cold water works fine how do i fix?

If shut off the hot water valve then you take off your supply line from your hot water valve to your faucet and then turn your hot water valve on slowly (with of course a bucket or something to collect the water under it) and if you can see you have water pressure and flow then most likely the problem would be in your faucet on the hot side. If you have no pressure or flow when you turn the hot valve on then it could be debris plugging your hot water pipe or your hot water service valve (angle stop, straight stop) which older galvanized pipes are known to do so. To fix the problem you would need to find out where the problem is then either fix or replace the faucet or replace the angle/straight stop or try back flushing the hot water pipe and or replace the pipe with pex or copper pipe.
