My Pool pump stopped working today

I have a Pentair whisperflo 1.5 hp high performance pump that is 4 years old. It stopped running mid day & I smelled a burning odor from it and noticed it was real hot to touch. I pulled off the capacitor cover and oil was all over it from the apparent leak from the back of the capacitor. I pulled the pump off and noticed it was free to turn by hand. Can I just replace the capacitor and if so where to get one? Is it a start or run capacitor?. The side of the capacitor only shows this on its label: CSC 325P306H37M30N4X
30UF +\- 6% 370 VAC/B 50/60HZ. I couldn't find one on line for that product line. It is round and silver in color with 2 4 prong blades for the wires . Any help &/or suggestions please. (This is my first post). Great site

Should be a simple start capacitor. Check the local yellow pages for an electric motor shop; they should be able to match it up.
