Spraying motor oil?

I started my truck this am to run for my normal coffee fix, head down the street, run in store, and come out and I see oil dripping from the drivers side frame rail, open hood to look and see what the heck happened, and the whole drivers side of the engine bay below the exhaust manifold is covered in oil!!!! When I get home there is no oil from where it was parked all night, so it happened on the way down the street which is less than 3/4mile.

So here is what I am thinking let me know what you think? Truck was not plugged in and temps dipped to about 15F. When I started the truck like an idiot I stepped on it and reved it up a little while i drove down the street.
So what I am thinking is the oil blew out between the oil filter and the mounting plate? Or is there some seals on the oil cooler that can leak oil?

When I got home, I soaked everything with 3 cans brake parts cleaner, let it idle for 15mins, and reved it a little and I will be damned if its not going to leak anymore, or at least let me see where it came from in the first place?

Any Ideas?

your right about the cold weather. your problem is the oil cooler header. my advice dont try to go cheap and just put any o rings on it. get them from ford. i tried to go cheap it don't work. ford o rings have a coating that helps them seal better and last longer.
