Bottomed my 98 jeep cherokee in ruts discovered a oil leak broke is it possible it that it broke the seal loose on the oil pan when it hit. its in that area around the oil filter and cooler lines

If you dented the pan, it's possible but still not real likely that the rail gasket was damaged but I'd actually look at it real closely and first, see if it's trans fluid or engine oil that's leaking, then clean everything off, start it, and find the exact leak source. I've broken the trans cooler lines at least three times going off-road, in the same place you say yours is leaking....The last time it happened, I re-routed them to keep it from happening again.

Son ran over something in road and stopped, looked under car and oil is spilling out.

It's very likely that whatever he ran over put a hole in your oil pan.
Do NOT drive the car any further as you may loose all of the oil and cause the engine to seize.

Call your auto insurance as this can be considered an accident and repairs may very well be covered by your insurance.

Whatever you do, have the car towed to the repair shop of your choice.

My car was running great. i ran over something off road that made the exaust leak near the motor. i continued to drive it . then it began to run low in water and if i didnt keep a close eye on it, it would...

Exhaust and coolant problems are two separate things. It's possible the donut that connects your exhaust manifold to the pipe came loose or the exhaust manifold or pipe has a hole from rust. You obviously still have a coolant leak somewhere. Start the engine and look under the car to see if you can see coolant dripping. It's either coming from one of your hoses, thermostat, water pump or coolant lines that run from your radiator to your transmission (if you have an automatic). There's a good chances are if it's still leaking the new water pump may not have been installed correctly. Also check your oil to make sure it's not milky white. That means your oil is mixing with the coolant from a blown head gasket. That can happen if the engine overheats severely. Head gasket repair is very expensive.

This morning I was taking my husband to work and all of a sudden my car which is a 96 toyota camry started spitting and sputtering and shakeing real bad. Well I went out there and took all the wires off...

Good news. Oil doesn't leak up out of the cylinder so the oil came from above~ probably a leak in the valve cover, and ran down along something else into the spark plug hole.That might sound crazy if you didn't see oil anywhere else but the route it took is probably hidden by other components. The oil would have fouled your plug and caused it to run that way. If it was blowing up out of the valve it would have been burnt .

Toyota Paseo leaking oil

Do you have any Leaks on the Ground where you Park? If not, You really need to get that Motor Overhauled. Your Motor is Burning the oil Because ther Rings are Worn out in the Motor and the Motor is Detonating the Oil and Burning it. a Rebuild is the Only Solution.
