Oil is dripping off the rear axle in the center on the garage floor. on 2002 Ford Escort

What can the problem be?

Asked by for the 2002 Ford Escort
OIL is dripping off of the REAR axle?? Is this an all wheel drive? Sure it is oil? If it is only a front wheel drive and is leaking oil or fluid that bad you need to have it towed to a repair shop and get it checked out!
