I had the oil changed and transmission fluid levels checked. I drove it approximately 10 min. to a gas station. It would not shift into gear going on a slight incline into the station. I had to put it into park to keep it from rolling backwards. Fluids kind of a reddish brown but not as thick as oil were ALL over the ground beneath it.

    sounds like a cooler line. there are 2 that run from the radiator to the trans. one or both of them may be leaking.

    Thank you for replying! I know VERY little about cars and wanted to have some sort of possible idea how bad this might be. I appreciate it.
