This is a known problem with the OEM gasket when aging or mileage. If your car is approaching 100K miles or about 10-years old this is common.

I replace my oil pan gasket when it had about 110K miles on it. I got tried of it leaking. My replacement gasket was a Motorcraft and I used the blue silicone gasket sealer.

Replacing the oil pan gasket is a straight forward process after you have removed the Y-pipe or support it with a jack stand. O2 sensors are a bitch to disconnect so I used jack stands to support the Y-pipe.

After replacing the gasket and the engine warms up re-torque the pan bolts one more time and you should be good for a while.
