    OK, do you have stick shift? Possibly your clutch is hydraulic and the slave cylinder is leaking.

Worst case diagnosis/cost scenario? front underbelly damage,hit 1' tall stake in ground. hissing sound ~5 sec & a/c fluid leaked by radiator gills. a/c blows warm air.

the damage will be a punctured condenser for the ac system
the green oil is the compressor oil that is circulated with the gas
you will not see the gas as it evaporates as soon as it hits the air. Best have an accredited ac specialist shop replace the condenser and any other damaged pipe work

1995 saturn! new water pump, and coolant. Changed alternator, and battery, changed oil, oil filter. noticed oily substance in overflow container. did a radiator flush, still has red, rusty color somet

Coolant is oil based. The oily mess in the overflow could be very old coolant. Or it could be engine oil from a leaking head gasket.
The rusty stuff on the floor inside the car could be from a leaking heater core.

Well you could chase it forever due to it blowing back when driving. I would take it to a car wash and wash if off real well underneath and drive it back home. It will show exactly where it's coming from.

I'm seeing clear liquid leaking to the ground behind the motor, located about where the radio would be a feet above it. I don't think it was condensation from the AC, as it was still dripping...

get some on you finger and see what it is. Oil will be gold, trans fluid is red, and they will be oily, run water over your finger and see if it rinses off. water from the a/c is just plain water. Open the hood with engine running and see where the leak originates from.

It is leaking muliple substances. one is red leaking on the right side of the car and right next to the red leak its a tube looking thing that is frayed and leaking a clear oily substance, the other is...

The "Red" is transmission fluid, the "Clear" is most likely power steering fluid, or it could be "refrigerent oil" from the A/C. I don't know what could be leaking in the rear of the car maybe oil from one of the rear struts or maybe brake fluid. Do the brakes seem to work OK yet? If so it's probably not brake fluid. It could be condensation coming out of the muffler, there a weap hole in the muffler to allow excess water to run out. It might be picking up some color from the muffler. The transmission and the power steering are the biggest concerns you don't want to let the fluid level get low on either of those. If the transmission is leaking on the right side it's most likely the axel seal or maybe the pan gasket. Neither of these should be an expensive fix. But, you should get it to a shop and have it checked out. Try to find an independent shop instead of the dealer the independents are usually cheaper and do just as good of work. Get an estimate!!

Where do we check the transmission fluid for o1 standard

usally just a small container (like the master cyclinder holds the brake fluid) for standard transmissions if any.

I have a leak directly in under the engine block a clear liquid with a hint of black....

Do you have a/c in the truck? Just wondering if it's water from the condenser. How much is under the engine? Are any fluids going down and have to be topped off occasionally? Power steering and auto trans fluid are pink, coolant is green, so the only 2 possibilities would be engine oil or brake fluid. Post answers to above for further help.
