It could be a number of things, The most likely however is a leaking sump. Possible that its leaking from the nut if its loose or there is no washer, could be from the CV joint also. VW's are famous for valve cover gasket leaks. Oil blows though, runs down and drips from the bottom. I also had to replace the O-ring at the base of the distributor. It was causing the same thing. Bottom drip.
your car is leaking oil!
The AT oil cooler is in the bottom tank of the radiator. If you are seeing oil leaking from one of the lines from and to the transmission connection could be loose.

If oil is leaking on a Briggs and Stratton 18.5 horsepower engine, it is likely a seal is bad. It could be the manifold or the bottom seal.
It is burned by the engine combustion process or it is leaking out of the engine.
oil can be leaking from higher up on engine. u just need to clean engine, then after running for awhile, look for leak, be aware that oil on engine can be blown back over engine by the fan, so some hard looking may be what it takes to find the problem

No just find out where the leak is and repair it.
Check the bottom gearbox casing bolts arent loose.
If it is leaking oil excessively you probably shouldn't. If the leaking oil was to reach the catalytic converter the oil could catch fire. Not to mention that everywhere you park you will leave a mess and you will be adding oil constantly to the engine.
The oil rings in the piston are leaking oil so u need to replace them

Yes, the oil may be leaking on a hot surface and burning. You could smell this inside the car.
The car could be knocking which is a very serious engine condition. The leaking and burning could have been a main seal blowing out and leaking engine oil, some of which fell on the hot exhaust and was burnt up. Generally a knock requires an engine rebuild or replacement. And if the main seal did go out, your engine may seize up from a lack of oil. Hope this helps.
Look at the bottom or side of the oil pan, but usually at the bottom rear of the oil pan "toward the back of the car"
Well, oil leaking onto the starter is a common cause of it going bad. Have the starter tested, if possible, then replace if bad. You'll also want to correct the oil leak, usually valve covers leaking.
That would depend on where it is leaking oil. Leaking valve covers would require the replacement of the valve cover gaskets. Most oil leaks are easily fixed, but some are not so easy and are really not cost effective to repair. A leaking crankshaft seal is very expensive to repair and unless it is leaking excessively, I would just deal with the leak. Of course that also depends on how old the car is and how long you plan on driving it. If you do not repair the leak, just remember to check your oil level regularly.
You may have a oil leak, and oil us leaking onto the hot motor making that smell
