Question about 2006 Ford Taurus
When it is this bad you have to park it and look underneath the motor. It should show where it is leaking from all of the oil trail. A part called an oil pressure sender may be leaking. It is very simple to replace and inexpensive. It also will not hurt to replace your oil filter and hand tighten it. Make sure you have a clean surface when the old filter is removed.
By the time you remove your oil filter, you should have a good visual check of the oilpan and oilplug. The oilplug can be stripped if someone crossthreaded or overtightened the nut. There are oversized oilplugs and repair adapters available to work around the problem.
In the event you have a hole in the oilpan, with a good cleaning, a product called JB weld can permanently patch a hole. Your motor has 2 main openings where the crankshaft is attached. Each end has a seal and you have major disassembly to replace inexpensive seals. The upper portion of the engine has valve covers and they are easily replaced.
Do 1 thing at a time and go by the evidence. With luck this may be a simple thing to fix. I hope my solution has been helpful to you.
