1994 v6 Explorer pouring out oil!!!! Help!!

Hello. I have a 1994 Ford explorer limited. It has the SOHC v6 motor in it. A few days ago I was on my way home and the oil pressure needle started going crazy at a stop light. No hard driving just in town 35mph all the time. Well by the time I got hom the needle was at the L and th echeck oil light came on. I pulled into the drive way and there was smoke coming out of the hood. There was a huge trail of oil all the way down my road and it made a puddle under the truck and just seemed to be coming out everywhere. I put some more oil in it to get it into the garage and in the span of about 20 feet it dumped 2-3 quarts all over the floor. I'm going to get int o it this evening and see if I can tell where it is coming from. Any pointers????

As a side note it seems to be coming mostly from the drivers side of the motor. It has had a small coolant leak (from somewhere) for quite some time. It will drain the resevoir in a month or so of driving. Thanks in advance for any help!!!!

I'll need to be doing this I'm sure!!!

Well thanks for all of the help. It was the oil sending unit. The little screw thing on the bottom front left of the block. $9 part and about 30 min including the trip to advance. And to think most said head gasket and $1500+........guess that will be next fix. Thanks again
