POPPING NOISE AND DRAGGING

Ford Other

1999 Ford Taurus 67,500
My sister got in my car tonight, started it and then jumped when she heard a loud popping sound. At first she thought that the emergency brake popped off-that wasn't it. Then she thought someone threw a really big snowball-that wasn't it. She started to drive and it felt as though something came loose and was dragging under the front end. She parked it and shut it off. It starts fine, but there is a loud dragging sound and it feels like something is coming apart underneath the front when we try to drive. HELP PLEASE! Also, a couple of weeks ago it appeared to be leaking oil. I took it to the dealer and they said is was the transmission line. They said they replaced both lines and that it was okay. It is still leaking but I only notice the leak when I park on a hill with the front end up.
