Find some high temperature epoxy putty. Clean the area as well as you can and apply the putty into the junction between the pipe and the banjo. (You probably have a crack there.)

Let it cure for an hour or two and hope for the best...

Or find some silicone self-fusing tape...Some are heat resistant up to 500 degrees. I try to carry a roll in my "go" box...
