Car had been parked for 3 days and then I looked underneath and there's a big but I could be big as a box a puddle coming down from the passenger side and running down towards the right front tire. On the images the one that has the most stuff on it was what was underneath there from last night I took it out so I could crawl underneath there and try to look up it and that's what it's had for being change about 1 hour.

Okay. Can we start with trying to post the pictures again? They did not post. Next can you determine what type of fluid? Is it more like water or more like oil?

If this is a coolant leak then we have some guides that will help with figuring this out.

Let's start with this info and go from there.

I think it's antifreeze. It's a pinkish color, but I thought I put yellow in it. I tried to get pictures of where it's dripping underneath the car and the cardboard was underneath the car that's how much came out overnight. I will try to take one more picture of where the dripping now on the cardboard. Thank you for all your help.

It is a little hard to tell but that is looks like oil. Pinkish in color could be transmission or power steering fluid.

Touch some of it and rub it in your fingers. Does it feel slimy like an oil or more like water?

If you want to get a picture of this in your fingers or even a video that would help.
