Water leaking from somewhere on my bissel quicksteamer model #1970

This is not an easy one for us to offer advice on because we cannot see it. There are a lot of places that can leak water and there are a lot of parts that can wear out. You need to check the hoses and connections on all the tanks and spray bars. At least you can get parts for it now:

When i turn it on the motor makes laud noise

Mine did too. Eventually it started smoking and spat-out dust from the dead motor.

I wish I had looked at the motor and added some vaseline or something before in conked-out completely.

I think the problem was that I was not spraying water enough and so running the machine more as a dry vacuum. Maybe this allowed the motor to spin too fast and over head. Or something.

New motors are available but cost nearly as much as a second hand quicksteamer / quickwash.

Diagnosing the problem with my bissell quicksteamer plus upright

Was the exposed copper wiring on the electrical cord? If is then replace the cord. The main problem with this model is that Bissell obsoleted it as well as parts for it. But if all you need is a cord, you should be able to get one from a repair shop.
