SOURCE: Removing an oil pan
Many cars require that you push the brake pedal before it will turn the starter. Keep brake pedal pressed. then try to start. If it still does not start, this still could be the problem. When the break pedal is pressed a switch is clicked on. It could be that the switch is bad.

SOURCE: oil leak
Two very likely sources for engine oil. You could have a valve cover leaking or a rear main seal. The best way to check is to trace the source of the oil. This requires a very thorough steam cleaning to remove all the old oil. Place an oil dye pack in the oil (about 3.50 at Napa and other parts stores). Run the engine for about 15 minutes and use a blacklight source and a mirror to check the back of the engine below the valve covers and closest to the firewall. Check out how the fresh oil floureces in the blacklight source by checking your dipstick for the color of the glow. If the back of the engine is dry and clean and your puddle is still glowing from between the engine and the transmission, you have a rear main seal and the transmission will need to be removed to change the seal. Spend the time on the diagnosis before you spend the money.

replace the front oil seal. first i would clean the engine with purple power (degrease etc.) then look at the engine and make sure the leak is not coming from above like possibly the valve cover gasket or from the oil sending unit. try to tighten the bolts on the valve cover and even the oil pan. you never know, you may get lucky. i don't know where you are but front seals are cheap but the labor on the job is what costs you.

rear main seal is the leak to fix: drop transmission remove clutch, drop oil pan and replace seal. seal is about 30 bucks, if your not auto savy id let a shop do it.. prolly around 800 tho...
