Loss of engine power, loud whistling noise

Exhaust manifold leak? That's not common. You talking about the VVT near the manifold at the top of engine above the power steering pump? Yes indeed, AC Delco is the only one our engines love. 41-103. Obviously you have P0304, what other codes?

I have 2000 ford expedition and last few weeks its been making a whistling noise when accelerate, then past few days it's been running rough, idel low and shakes a bit then today check engine ligh

You might check the pulleys that the serpentine belt runs on. Make sure all are free wheeling and not loose or rough or make noise. You would need to remove the belt to check them.

My battery light came on today and its leaking oil

There's a slight possibility that the 2 are related. If the oil leak is making the serpentine belt slick, this could cause the battery light to come on meaning that the alternator isn't fully recharging your battery. Check the belt for worn or slick spots as well as cracks. Any of these would cause the belt to slip which could trigger your battery light as well as an engine overheating warning. If the belt is tight and in good shape, you should check the battery itself. Look for corrosion on the cable ends. If the cables are loose or corroded, this also would trigger your battery warning light.

As far as the leaking oil goes, the most common cause is the dome gasket. Look for seepage around the dome cover (you may need to remove the air filter assembly to access the dome cover). For obvious reasons, you should repair both of these issues immediately. Leaking oil can lead to engine damage as well as fouling your spark plugs.
