There oil leaking from underneath and slot of oil spilled on the engine

Automotive Expert
Hello! I'd be more than happy to help. It could be a bad oil leak that is causing the oil to spray all over the [exhaust](/topics-exhaust/) at higher rpms and higher speeds which would cause a burning smell and smoke. more than likely the oil pan gasket. In order to find the oil leak you'll first have to clean the bottom of the engine. I would also recommend checking the oil level of the engine.

Can it b a broken gasket
Automotive Expert
Yes! Absolutely it could be a broken gasket. Determining where the gasket is can be the problem if the entire bottom of the car is covered in oil.

When driving it I hit the gas and the rpm go up to 5 and my speed is only like 20 mph
Automotive Expert
Is it an automatic [transmission](/topics-transmission-honda/)?

it is
Automotive Expert
It's a possibility that your transmission is slipping.

How will I know for sureIt doesn't kick when I put it in gear
Automotive Expert
Are you able to pull the dipstick out of the transmission? It should be labeled. if the fluid is a dark red color and smells burnt then its more than likely slipping and needs to be rebuilt.

Ok I'll make sure to check it also the check engine light is on
Automotive Expert
That could be caused by many different things. You will need a scan tool in order to check why the check engine light is on. Hopefully, the transmission is just low on fluid and if that's the case that may be the only problem!

Ok thank you I'll look into itCan I contact you later if I have more concernes
Automotive Expert
Absolutely! I hope you are able to get it figured out! Best of luck to you. If you could give me an excellent rating before you leave that would be much appreciated!

Automotive Expert
Great, thank you so much!
