Your water pump is shot, it's leaking out the bottom weep hole, but the coolant runs down the body of the pump, down the block to the oil pan, and down the oil pan a couple bolts and then onto the ground.

Just replaced the water pump on the TE a couple weeks ago, slow coolant leak.

The occasional oil droplets can be from oil left in the cooling system from previous problems -- if you don't use something serious to get it out, it hangs around forever.
