Take it back to the oil change place. Or check the oil. If a seal is leaking or oil filter was not tightened or put on correctly oil may have leaked out and you will blow your engine!

Is is there any oil leaking in garage or driveway or where you park?

Blue smoke when starting van & engine ticking very loudly in gears1 to 4

Blue smoke is caused from the engine burning oil along with the gas and oil. This indicates an INTERNAL oil leak. An external oil leak is one that makes spots on the driveway.
The ticking is probably from low oil or low oil pressure. Id have it checked pretty soon by a professional mechanic. It may be time to spend serious money.

2000 satrn sl1 someone told me on my 5 speed the gear oil was leaking out on right side of trany the seal was bad, now they tell me something on top is what is really leaking gear oil, what can it be or do...

first, make sure the car is actually leaking oil.
park the car on a clean part of driveway overnight and see if there are any new oil spots in the morning.

the only way to tell exactly where a leak is coming from is to steam clean the underneath of the car and look to see exactly where the oil is coming from.

you do this to find where the leak is, then you try to work out the best way to fix it.

Losing oil

is there an oil spot in your parking spot? If not, you are probably burning it.

Drops of oil leak when parked about a coin size (25 cents)

You will have to be the one to accurately find where that oil is leaking from. After the jeep is parked for a while, slide under there and look up, directly above where spot of oil is, and you might be able to see where the oil is leaking from. There is no other way to tell since oil can leak from so many different spots below the engine compartment. Good luck in your search.
