possible that plug did fall out, or was installed incorrectly, or the filter was not tightened properly. Have you looked under it? I'm curious why you are letting it run 5 minutes before driving...that tells me you have had problems, which you did not mention. If you want help, you need to give a lot more info...

Take a good look around and find it, it may be a oil cooler line and a simple fix.

Confirm the level of the oil in oil pan, do not crank it up. May not be engine oil, if you have dark ATF it may of up-chuked due to overheating threw the vent on top of trans case.
