it could well be one of the oil cooler pipes have come loose one is above the oil filter and the other one on the left hand side of the filter if laying under the car

Re: 3.0 v6 GTV oil leak

It could be that the pipes have corroded, which is known to happen. Unfortunately it can be a bit costly as the pipes are steel and the oil cooler is aluminium, so when the pipes corrode they semi-weld onto the cooler, which otherwise is working fine. For this reason most garages will replace the cooler too. However, there are a few garages who can manage to get the pipes off the cooler no problem, you just need to phone around.
