gears lost 2nd and 4th what do you do can I still drive the car

I have a 93 Saturn 5 speed. I don't know the cars repair history cause I've only had it for 9months. Over the past few months it has become more & more difficult to shift into 1st & sometimes 2nd gear. Now in the last few days it has lost alot of power, when I let out the clutch pedal trying to increase speed the R.P.M.s increase alot but the car doesn't speed up. Its even worse trying to get it going from a stop. The feeling in the clutch pedal hasn't changed. I cant find where to check the hydrolic clutch fluid (Owners manual says it has hydrolic clutch)would it be in with the brake fluid? Would low hydrolic fluid cause it to feel like it needs a new clutch? including the loss of power when trying to increase speed while already moving such as going from 3rd to 4th gear? Is there a way to know for sure if it could be the clutch fluid or cylinder, rather than the clutch assembly before taking it to a repair shop? I'm dissabled and have a very small income. Guess I'm a bit "gun shy" about repair shops. I feel like the word "sucker" must be stamped on my forehead.

Engine has 113k miles and I don't believe plugs have ever been changed. I want to pull them and check the gap. If new ones are warranted, then, of course I will replace them. I don't have the owner's manual.

Just got my transmission repaired and still having problem with it. Instead of it not changing gears right, now it jerks when it shift.Took it back then was told that it needs transmission mount and motor mounts. Replace them and still having jerks. Now its making noise when I turn on the aircondition, alot of rattling. I did't have any problem with my aircondition until I had work done on my transmission for the second time. Please help and tell me what aim doing wrong with my car problems.

Sometime when I'm driving my car it past the first gear but when it get to the second gear it will stays in it for about thirty second then past. It don't happen alot but it is doing it. It may do this about twice aweek. It depends on how much I drive it.I also would like to know is this hurting the motor?

where is my starter located

I've noticed that my car is leaking oil on the back side of the engine. During my last oil change I tried to see where the oil was coming from. Looking up from underneath the car on the back side of the engine it appears that the oil is coming from somewhere up high. Are there any known or common oil leaks there? If so what and is there a video on how to repair it? I've noticed oil on the garage floor where I park it and I seem to have to add 2 quarts of oil between 5,000 mile intervals.
