HELP! MY CAR SUDDENLY DROPPED A STREAM O

1998 Nissan Altima

Engine Mechanical problem
1998 Nissan Altima 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 186, 00 miles

Hi-I really need your help. I have this 1998 altima and when I park in my drive way and looked behind the car there was a thin stream of oil about 1/2 thick and continuous. No oil runs on to the ground when the car is off and there are no funny sounds from the engine or lights on by the steering wheel. I live in freeing Minneapolis. Should I have it towed to the dealer? Should I try and sell it at a loss as is? There are no funny smells or steam or anything like that. Thanks so much-the Single Girl in Minneapolis

Is the car manual or automatic. Where is the stream flowing from example center of car from front and behind wheel from side. Also what color is the oil, clean or blackened. It could be many things. Some of which are simple cheap fixs and some of which are better off to scrap it.
