why is this happening? Can someone help me. people are saying it is because the oil pump is damaged

I was driving down the road when I lost power from engine. when I pulled over I had smoke under hood, upon inspecting, I noticed I had oil all over the cross member under the engine. the engine would run rough, but when you pushed the gas pedal it would lose power and start trying to stall out. now engine won't start, any ideas where or what I should check first. I really need it running and a full fledged mechanic is well outside of my budget. can do the work myself, just need pointed in the right direction. thanks in advance p.s. this is the 2.7 XL7 not the 2.5 model Vitaras.

Recently my xl7 rolled to a stop, and won't move, the driveshaft is turning but the rear end differencial isnt rurning the wheels

A little while ago my suzuki started making a rhythmic grinding from my driver's side rear tire. Rhythmic in the sense that when Im speeding up the rhythm picks up. So, we figured it was the wheel bearing needing to be replaced. Well- we're still in the process of fixing it, however now my rear tire is leaking break fluid- as in, I do not have any tension on the breaks because its empty. Im a single mother. I know how to change break pads, rotors, oil filters, etc etc. but Im unfamiliar with rear wheel drums and wouldn't mind learning about them- not only because its interesting, but also because Im pinching pennies at this point. Do I need new calipers? is this a hard process? Please point me in the right direction.

Where are the eletrical sensors for the transmission located?

We are thinking of buying a 2nd hand vitara. When test drive, the auto gear is hard to pull/push from park to drive. Not sure if its due to low gear oil or going to spoil gear. There is also sound from the rear while driving. Sounds like some item rolling around but found nothing in boot. The hazard light keeps blinking even though doors are closed, hazard lights off (all the time). Please advise.

No other issues were noted the rest of the way to work or on the drive home this evening. I checked the gas cap when I got to work, no help

My fan motor is not running for heat and air. The motor is fine and some say resistor some say switch and this place say control panel? It was running then would hesitate and slow down then speed up and when I started my truck today nothing? Could it be the resistor? I hope so that's only 100.00. How can I tell? Some say the fan would run on hi only if it is the resistor and some say that isn't true....please help

When the airconditioner is switched on there is a 'whir' noise from the engine, when the aircon is switched off it stops - (like one of those kids toys)
Is this something serious that can cause damage and is it easily fixed?

Happens every 2 to 3 days. Engine coughs and sputters. Stops. In 5 min.starts and runs fine again.

and comes back on when I release the brake. The left turn signal on the dashboard stays on when night headlights are on and when day lights are just on the left turn signal comes on when I brake??? My cruise control will not work at times. What can I do to fix these electrical problems?

Air bag warning stays on all the time,dealer said air bags may not deploy in an accident
