Oil & fluid leaking on starting.

Dear leaking fluid on starter, I suggest that you inspect your engine fluid resevoirs and assess from the lowest one to see if its fluid matches the fluid that has leaked onto the ground. i suggest parking on a large piece of paper or plastic to collect your sample of leak fluid. that is where i would begin. in my opinion, sounds like a leaky valve cover gasket or coolant system leak, ie, waterpump, heater hose. rad hose.....

Leak under car on driver side maybe waterpump

If the fluid is a bright green or yellow colour, it is coolant fluid. Check the water pump, there should be a seal leak drain hole under it, look for signs of a leak. If there is a green/yellow track leading from below the water pump. you need to have the water pump replaced. A leak from the engine would be dark brown to black an a transmission leak would be red tp very dark red. Coolant would tend to dry up while oils spills do not. The water pump is located on the side of the engine where the belts are. I do not know if your car is left or right hand drive.

Car is overheating but is holding fluids

Waterpump, loose/broken hose, or head gasket. Waterpump is most likely, unless recently changed. Make sure you get the Timing Belt done, unless it's also been done recently, if the water pump is replaced.
Good luck,

When you start the engine look at the water pump and see if engine coolant is pouring out the weeping hole.If so you need a new water pump.Use a light source to see this

I pour coolant in from the radiator cap a almost instantly leaks

On most cars there is a weep hole that goes out when your water pump does. Chances are if your car was not making any terrible noises that it is just your waterpump.
Try cleaning the area then watching carefully to see where the fluid is coming out.But 9 times out of 10 its almost always the waterpump. If it was coming out of the oil pump then chances are that you will be able to see coolant on your oil dipstick and then thats a whole new set of problems.
