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.

Oil leak 2000 alero, just replaced plug, not it, leaked out all the oil after I drove it 20 miles, please help, could it be a gasket or what

Check the oil filter. The old gasket might be stuck on the engine (two gaskets stuck together), or the new gasket might be defective, misaligned or missing.

Oil coming from main pulley seal on engine of saturn.

Then a mechanical person must replace that seal, no magical fixes for leaking seals. You can buy some goop off the shelf at Advance which says it will fix leaking seals, but if anything it will just slow it down and stop something else up. You might want to look around for a motor from a 95 saturn SC1, SL1, or SW1 which has much lower mileage and think about swapping that engine in. A junkyard can tell you exactly what engines will fit. There are many used engine vendors on ebay.

Oil leak from driveshaft n/s

not sure if you can interchange the manual & aut shafts, but you should check to see if there is excessive play where the shaft enters the gear box if so the diff bearings my be worn, if there is no play or noises from gear box when driving, remove the shaft again an try the seal on the shaft to check it's a proper fit, before fitting seals it is a good idea to leave them soaking in oil for a few hours prior to fitting

hope this helps

You have a transmission front seal that has gone bad. The transmission will have to be removed and new seals installed.
