All they told me at the shop was "it has oil leak and has coolant leak".

Oil can leak many places on an engine and coolant can also leak in several places. Not enough information to make a suggestion on what is wrong.

I agree with Bob, too many places to leak. But being a 17 year old car, and assuming it hasn't been done you might get all the hose changed. There isn't too many on the later Accords ( radiator, bypass, and heater hoses) and is a good investment if your planning to keep the car.You didn't say what engine, but common oil leaks for the 4 cyl is the oring behind the oil cooler (filter adapter) and check around the oil pan which use sealant instead of a gasket,

In my opinion Jill, or me just being bias of shops and how they pray on older people young beautiful women I always telling them there's something more wrong with that car then what you originally came in to get done to always get a second opinion and trust me if it was leaking this much oil and coolant as they say it wouldn't be leaking at all because it probably wouldn't be operativatiable. One quick observation where is leaking from can be done by putting either a piece of clean cardboard or white poster board under your car when you park at night and when you pull out in the morning align the locations of the drips with the location from the bottom of your car. It's not totally accurate but it'll give you a general area.
