I have a kumquat planted in a container. I had many fruits in last two years. This year I notice that It lost most leaves. I see many branches drying out. Wax-like oil is leaking out from the branches. However a new shot comes below the graft position. Can someone tell us whether I can save this plant?

Welcome!

It looks like your kumquat has Citrus Gummosis. In the late stages (where I think your tree is), there's not much you can do to save it.
