2000 Chevy Cavalier Wheel Drive Type unknown Automatic 100000 miles

I have a 2000 chev. Cavalier it is a 2.2 4cyl motor. My problem started when I left work I noticed that my car felt funny. Usually it will shift and the rpm will go down, not this time. Everytime I would excell the rpm would go up to 2. It usually wouldnt do that after it shifts but it like lost power. I guess. It will still drive for now but I only drove that couple blocks home because I dont want to risk it. When I pulled out of work it seemed like something was leeking by the exaust. Then I went home and parked my car and noticed that there was something frozen on the ground it seemed slipery like oil? Please help!What could this be?

Low power + liquid discharge from tailpipe? Check the color of your radiator fluid. If it is black and oily then the head gasket may be to blame.

If so, get a compression check on your cylinders. If one or two show much lower than the others, then they could be leaking oil into the cooling system.
