The car had been running fine but then made a noise that sounded like a playing card in bicycle spokes, the engine revved higher and higher as the car lost all power, the check engine and oil lights came on as the car stalled. When I try to start it, the flywheel spins, but engine does not turn over. Timing chain/belt is on, serpentine belt is fine. A fluid was dripping near the front passenger wheel and it left a puddle, but the liquid was not oily and had no smell. Any ideas?

My 2004 did the same thing I didn't hear any sound but was traveling in the 50's then I lost all power and now she won't turn over at all, I hear the fly wheel spin when I turn the key but no crank. I still have fuel pressure so I don't think its the fuel pump. The garage said it the starter but why would it stall if it was the starter?

There are a few possibilites. It really depends on the source of the oil leak.

If the transmission is leaking, the torque converter, Flex Plate or Differential may have failed and blew out a seal or damaged the cases.

If the oil is coming from a strut, it will need to be replaced.

There are other possibilites, it all depends on the source of th eoil leak.

Here are some links to some walk through diagnosis'
