2006 Nissan Murano

Transmission problem
2006 Nissan Murano 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 67692 miles

When I am at a stop sign or stop light and I accelerate it " hiccups" about 3 times then drives on. Tonight I was on the freeway and I looked in review mirror and there was smoke and I noticed fluid had sprayed all over my car. When I got it to a safe location I look back at a trail of transmisson fluid. Then when I stopped it was all over the ground. I got in the car and it starts fine but when I put it in drive it barely goes. What could it be?
