Default 04 Sedona Leaking Oil EVERYWHERE!!!

Ok...I have a 2004 Sedona that started leaking a bit of oil a couple weeks ago. I parked it on a slanted driveway and it had 3 - (3") drops underneath all in a row (front to back).

I parked it in the garage like I always do and kept checking every day and nothing was leaking. Then this weekend I went out of town and it leaked on my in-laws driveway...same 3 drops...and it was slightly slanted.

I check the oil level and it was really low. I add a couple qts today and drove home. When I got home I got out and there was oil leaking the entire way up the driveway!!!

I looked under the car and now there is oil EVERYWHERE!!!

It's under the passenger side from the front of the car right next to the wheel (even have oil in the wheel well) all the way back along the side to the rear wheel. It's wet the entire way and leaking oil the entire way back, so now I have oil all over the place!!

I'm not sure how it got this bad...so fast, but I'm starting to freak out.

I first thought oil pan gasket, but now that's it's this bad, I have no idea.

Any advice will help!!! I'm taking it to a mechanic on Tuesday as I don't have any time tomorrow (neither does he). What could make oil run all the way to the rear like that and even splash up onto the sides of the doors?

Thanks!!!

Seems like an issue with the oil filter. If I recall, the oil filter is on the passenger side. Could be loose or double gasket (gasket from old filter stuck to the oil filter housing and the new oil filter gasket). Just a couple of possibilities.
