1995 Saturn SL1 Manual Transmission

Sounds like the friction surface of the clutch disc is slipping. You would have to install a new clutch (clutch disc, pressure plate, and clutch release bearing), and have the flywheel surface cut and polished back to perfect smooth by a shop.
Manual transmission gears don't slip like automatics. And lack of fluid in the transaxle or the hydraulic clutch system won't cause this either.

Oil coming from main pulley seal on engine of saturn.

Then a mechanical person must replace that seal, no magical fixes for leaking seals. You can buy some goop off the shelf at Advance which says it will fix leaking seals, but if anything it will just slow it down and stop something else up. You might want to look around for a motor from a 95 saturn SC1, SL1, or SW1 which has much lower mileage and think about swapping that engine in. A junkyard can tell you exactly what engines will fit. There are many used engine vendors on ebay.

My transmission leaks what should i replace

There are at least 5 places on the Automatic transmission that can over time, and mileage develope fluid leaks. Front converter seal at the front of the transmission,pan gasket in the center,dipstick tube o ring at the center on one side ,speed sensor o ring,and the tail shaft seal at the rear,of the transmission.
Place a flat piece or huge card board,under the engine and transmission,after driving you will see where the fluid,red in color is dripping. Its easier to spot exactly where the leak is comming if you can look under the car,while it is running, The easiest leak is the pan gasket,the dipstick tube, and the speed sensor,then the rear housing tail shaft bushing and seal.
If the front seal(converter seal) is leaking the transmission will need removed,and the seal,and maybe even the front pump bushing Replaced,it would be a good idea to replace the bushing esp if it has high mileage,80,000 or 100,000 miles of use.Change the fluid and the filter,while repareing the leak or leaks.Is a good idea.

Check manual transmission fluids in saturn slf2. How?

Most manual transmissions don't have a dipstick. They have a drain plug and a fill plug. When the oil reaches the fill plug then it is full. Unless it leaks, the level never goes down. It just has to be replaced after some mileage like 100,000.

You have a transmission front seal that has gone bad. The transmission will have to be removed and new seals installed.

My son's saturn sl1 2001 is leaking transmission

If it doesn't have a dipstick for trans it must be an L-Series.They have a plug you remove from the bottom end of tunnel on the trans.If fluid come out with it running,supposedly it's full but it's a bad way is to remove trans pan,drain fliud(replace filter if needed)Re-attach pan & gasket.Re-fill with 7qts Mercon 3 fluid.Hope this helps

Leaking transmission fluid

it is down on the drivers side of the car about 18 inched from the front it has a tight fit so you will need to have a funnel with a hose, to fix the leak you will most likely have to replace your transmission pan (it cost me $240 at the dealership) the saturn ls1 sits very low to the ground and if you dent the pan it will leak i have replaced mine twice in four years
