SOURCE: eng oil leak/3.8 Ltr. eng.
check oil filter, sometimes gasket from old filter is still on engine and when tou have 2 gaskets, (the old one and new one on new filter) it will hemmorage out oil pretty quick. next time check to see if gasket is on old filter when it is removed. I found that out after $30 worth of Mobil 1 poured out on my driveway.

SOURCE: 1998 mustang gt coolant leak
I just had the same problem. Ford design the intake manifold with plastic water crossover which cracks. The coolant will leak onto the top of the block and and then down the back of the engine. This intake design is a known defect and was ocvered under by Ford for 7 years past the date of mfg. The crack either is in the crossover or the thermostat housing. I happed on this when I found the same leak and traced it back to the thermostat housing. I changed the thermostat, but it leaked worse. You can pickup a aftermarket for $200 and it's about 4-6 hr job to replace.

Remove the filter and check to see if it has an extra gasket. (sometimes the old one remains on and new filter is installed on top of it.) If the leak is coming from between the engine and the "device" Likely an oil filter mount pad or extension, make sure the bolts that hold it on the engine are tight (Don't turn them really really tight or they could snap) . Clean the area off all around the leak and put it back together. If leak is still there you may have to replace the gasket at the block. If the device is a sending unit with a wire on top, change it...that is your oil pressure sender...they often leak.

V6? If it is the water pump, the timing belt and tensioner should be replaced too. The timing belt operates the water pump and has to come off. A LOT more than four bolts! Get it pressure checked. Sometimes the leak maybe a small coolant hose leaking and running down the front of engine, like throttle body coolant hose or an oil coolant hose on this suv.
