Time to remove the oil filter and see if that's where its leaking from, make sure you clean the area around the filter good...

OK could it really be something that simple?? Second and last question!! Say if I change the filter and its still leaking; then move towards the gasket next?

The thing is there is no other gasket that is there, so take it step by step.

Wrong.....The oil filter adapter has a gasket between it and the engine block. These are prone to leak and the coolant has to be drained to replace the gasket. Fel Pro 70801 is the part number.

Glad you got it fixed. That is a common problem with the 4.6 in the Lincolns, Mercury Marquis and Ford Crown Victorias.
