I heard a noise with the transmission and then it started slipping and i checked and it was leaking and then i could only drive about 5 miles per hour and i drove it home and i left it over night and then i tried to move it but it moved a little and then it wouldnt move so i put more fluid in and it seems to be leaking some where near the fire wall. I need some possible solutions that i might be to fix it, if its a gasket or hose or is it seized?

A leak under the motor could be anything. Is it motor oil, transmission fluid, coolant??? Anything can leak and it can start from the top. It will all end up under the motor.
But if you feel the transmission is slipping then its best to have it checked. A person cannot diagnose many things, including a slipping transmission, or the web. If you let it go though it could leave you stranded at any time.
If the trans fluid smells burnt, brown, many miles on the transmission and/or many miles between transmission services (or never serviced) then most its in need of repairs. With a slipping transmission, a fluid and filter change is not going to fix it. Having clean fluid in there may cause it to slip more and leave you stranded sooner.
Only 2 reasons for this, low transmission fluid level or a malfunction in the transmission due to orn parts or a hydraulic pressure leak. Check the fluid HOT and make sure it is between the two lines (low and full) on the dip stick.
Your transmission seems to have gone into a condition called "limp in". This is caused by the transmission control module recognizing a problem in the operation of your tansmission. "limp in" is used to protect the transmission from further damage but still allow you to reach a service facility. The transmission is onluy able to use 2nd gear and reverse during this condition. You will have to have the transmission fault determined by a computer scan. An automotive repair facility can advise you further regarding repair.
MOST LIKELY HAS A PLUGGED TRANSMISSION FILTER.
TORQUE CONVERTOR CLUTCH FAILURE COMMON.
CHANGE TRANSMISSION FILTER AND ROAD TEST.
IF NOISE IS GONE AND RUNS NORMALLY, CHANGE TORQUE CONVERTOR AND RESEAL TRANSMISSION.
The reverse light switch is mounted on the transmission (at the front just above the oil pan) most likely has transmission fluid leaking through it and shorting out the switch -- using soap or wd40 will only solve your noise for a short time - remove belt and check your belt tensioner bearing
have the car scanned for computer codes in the transmission section,most big name auto parts stores will do this for little or no charge, make sure they look for transmission codes. when you get these get back to me and we'll go from there,please rate my fix as i strive to be the best,don't leave negative feedback, just get back to me
