Is there something wrong with my Corsica? Engine? Transmition? What? on 1995 Chevrolet Corsica

When I step on the gas it takes a second to get up to speed. And when I step on the gas pedal I hear a popping sound. Also when I stopped the car shakes. Tonight when I got home I smelt a burning smell. I am worried.
