How big the oil puddle?

A pretty decent size.big enough for the neighbors to complain

I need help

OK, we can do that. Pull the dipstick, how low is the oil? a couple quarts? So you need to get the car up on jack stands, remove the belly pan and see where the oil is coming from. Could be from the oil pan or oil pan plug to the oil filter housing. Can you take some photos?

Are you sure it's oil and not transmission fluid?

I'm not sure all I know is it was running. Fine one day and the another say the slap shift was the only way I could get it to drive n then boom it stopped moving forward a d backwarda

Sounds like the transmission is toast. The puddle might be burnt trans fluid. Have it towed to your nearest garage for diagnosis.
