Get a can of Gunk and clean the engine according to the directions there (please do read them), with attention to the area around where the oil leak is. Once you get the motor squeaky clean, you will be able to trace back to where the oil is coming from. It may be running down the underside of a hose so you will need to look carefully. You can do all this in the driveway. You will probably have to let the engine get to operating temp before it will start leaking.

SOURCE: Ford Windstar oil leak
Most possible oil leaks from valve cover rubber oil seal. Remove valve cover, inspect , clean surfaces, and replace with new rubber oil seal .
Thanks for using fixya.

make sure they are tight
could be time for head gaskets
make sure the old gasket from the old filter came off the block sometimes they come off old filter and stick this causes a leak due to improper seal.
