    $50 in parts so going by there info I would say it gonna cost you several hundred dollars. Just find out what the average shop rate is where you live and you can make a better estimate from that.

Oil leak between oil pan and transmission.

Try running some of that high-mileage engine oil next time you do an oil change (it helps to swell engine seals slightly). If the problem clears up or is reduced, then it's likely that the rear main oil seal is starting to leak a little. The rubber seals will harden up and shrink a little with age.
I would also powerwash the entire area clean, so that way any leak will be easier to monitor and pinpoint.

My daughter has a 2003 ford taurus stationwagon. In town it has not pick up. She is trying to drive home from about 100 miles away and cant get the car to go above 40. It works for a little while after...

I need more input; like How many miles does it have, or what kind of engine does it have, example: 3.0 litter Vulcan or duratec (the Vulcan is a regular 12 valve engine while the Duratec has dual overhead cams 24 valves) does it run rough when in Idle, does it hesitate under acceleration? Did the "check engine" light come on? It could be a number of things, I am going to try to narrow it down by the symptoms. Which is very difficult. The Ideal would be to get the "check engine light" ON so we can retrieve a code.

Rear engine oil leak....

Oil leak can be attributed to several factors.
1. Gasket failure.
2. Uncontrolled Crank case pressure Failure.

Tighten both the valve cover and oil pan bolts.
Replace the Positive Crankcase Ventilation Valve and vacuum line.,

This is a valve causes a negative vacuum on the engine while its running, As to say if it had a leak in a valve cover it should not be leaking while its running, only when the engine it turned off.

Hope this tip guides you in the correct direction to solve this problem.

Oil leak about the size of a quarter on ground -

Check around your rocker cobver and around the engine for oil leaking down over. it is possible that its just oil sat in the catch tray under the car leaking now and then. I would expect after 2-3 weeks though that all this would be gone.

I always pressure wash the oil leaked area and then when it starts again you have a better idea where it came from.

Right rear brake has slow brake fluid leak.It's a 99' Ford Taurus

leaking fluid will not cause a brake to lock up unless the wheel cylinder is leaking and caused the brake shoe to swell. If so, you need a new wheel cylinder.

Huge Coolant Leak

It is most likely the cylinder block core plug at the rear of the engine, there was a recall to repair corrosion in the cooling system I think in 96, but they still rusted up allot, saw many new cars with rusted core plugs leaking. Press test the system on a lift, if that core plug is leaking you will have to pull out parts, most likely the transmission to get at it.
