Default Oil Leak in 95 Integra LS - Leaks close to front passenger tire

I am not an auto expert.

My 95 Integra LS stick shift leaks close to the passenger side front
tire. I poured 10W-30 and it is all seeped out. I can't also switch
gears in my manual car, when the car is turned on. I can switch gears,
when the car is turned off only.

Any idea on:

1) Where the leak could be?
2) What has to be fixed to stop the leak?
3) Tentative cost of getting it fixed by an auto technician?
4) Do other types of oil additives stop leaks?

Please email me : sgho@aol.com

The wife of a friend of mine, years ago, was found to be adding oil to
her car engine by periodically pouring a quart of it over the engine
block. She used to do this whenever she noticed that it looked like
the old oil coating the engine block was drying out. I swear I am not
making this up.

My friend, upon discovering what she was doing, took over car
maintenance duties from her. I won't name names, but her name was
Jill Bush, and her husband's name was Peter. They lived near me in
Southampton in the mid 70s. I wonder where they are now?

Sounds like a clutch slave cylinder.

Where are you putting this oil?

I'm not making this one up either:

Many years ago (many), I was at a Gulf station filling up one day. In the
next bay was a 40-ish woman with a '71-'73 Dodge Charger. As I was filling
up, the woman tried to start her car, which just went chugga-chugga and
didn't fire.

She then got out of the car, armed with a big screwdriver. She opened the
hood, removed the cover from the air cleaner, and proceeded to (repeatedly
and hard) stab the screwdriver into the carburetor's throat!!

After I recovered from the mild stroke this gave me, I casually strolled
over in an attempt to help. It turned out that a friend of hers had told
her that if the car would not start, there was probably dirt in the carb.
Evidently she decided that she could unclog it the way you would a drain or
vacuum cleaner. The venturis were badly battered and gouged, so this was
probably not the first time she'd done this.

I just told her I wished I could help and drove off. Didn't wanna touch
that one...
