Leaking 3" PVC plumblinb pipe

My house (1980 circa) has a leaking Plastic plumbing pipe. Its just below my bathroom in the basement. The top is a 3" y that connects the toilet and shower. there is a 1.5" on the side that connector the kitchen sink. (its leaking at the bottom of this union) Just below this joint there is a short pipe that then has a 30 degree bend to about a foot of pipe to another 30 degree bend that then goes down the wall to the floor. The pipe is leaking at the bottom of the top y connector that connects the toilet and shower.
So, how do i go about fixing this? do i need to somehow cut this out or is there a glue or epoxy to seal this back up. Is there flexible 30" 3" joints if i cut the old section out?

you will have to cut out the bad section and replace it, may have to disassemble other fittings to get new line in place

the glue joint has failed , if you could get it apart and clean it up , you may be able to reglue , but not something for someone who has to ask how ;-)
simple fix, may work , may not , go to hardware store and get a product called
"plumbers epoxy " its a 2 part epoxy similar to playdough , you break off equal parts and knead it in your hands till warm and pliable , apply to leaking area after you have thoughly cleaned that area with something like pvc cleaner or acetone , mold in tightly , and let harden , being careful to not run any water through that line while the epoxy sets ,
another thing i would try if that doesnt work is to pick up a "fernco" slice it so it will wrap around the leaking section and tighten up the clamps
good luck
