Sounds like a valve cover gasket. relatively easy fix, be certain not to overtighten though.

SOURCE: 2003 ford f 150 5.4 v8 leaking oil from top of

clean it off & inspect for a valve cover gasket leak, a head gasket is possible but unlikely. Use a flashlight & an adjustable inspection mirror (don't buy the cheap small one) to observe for the leak. if that fails you, then go to the local parts store & buy some Brake Cleaner, Florescent Oil Leak detector additive, and a lamp kit for UV dye diagnosis. use the Brake cleaner on all suspect/dirty surfaces, place additive in the engine oil, start engine turn on light & place glass'es on face, look for leak, ID & repair,, recheck work

SOURCE: oil leak on passenger side top of valve cover

This is due to a damaged gasket on the valve door and so it is necessary that the gasket is changed immediately.
Try and tighten the bolts on the valve door so as to confirm if this will close the leak.

6ve1 engines are non interference and therefore will not bend valves and is why it uses a rubber timing belt.. leaks from top right hand side are likely the head gaskets on that side or the cam sprocket into the head seal has failed .. no biggie

Bad oil leak around oil pan, does somebody have an engine diagram for the Dodge 3.0 in this Grand Caravan?

This is what I found on my 1998 with a 3.0 motor Most likely you have a rusted pan with a hole on the passenger side of pan, clean the oil pan real good and inspect it real good and check for small leaks,
Also the transmission pan is also known to rust through on the left side top and bottom, Salt and brime plays heck on all pans and brake lines
