Spewing transmission oil from where?

Is the oil red or brown? That sounds like it might be engine oil.

Check the transmission cooler lines that go to the radiator.

Its brown and the lines are intact

And it was shifting hard to reverse but not any other gears and its auto

Brown is probably engine oil. Check the transmission fluid level. If the fluid is brown it is burnt, normally it should be red. Blowing oil out all over the place sounds like a crank seal gone bad.

Check the engine oil level too!
