I was in a accident and my A frame is shot

Thought it was fuel filter but car still stalls. Got several lights on dash. Low coolant theft seat belt oil batt abs brake and airbag.
Engine starts and stalls occasionally all instrument lights stay on even when the car does start and runs. The engine is also sluggish and when you find the right throttle position in takes off. I changed the the throttle position sensor and didn't help. Car doesn't have a chip in the key. Is the engine stall problem the instrument cluster, theft system or sensor failure ?
I could drive my car for about 15 to 20 mins then go to park, so I reverse then put in drive but it won't go but car will still running,so I turn off 96 Buick Skylark waited like 45mins to an hour to start my car back up, put it in drive & it drove,this has happened a few other times, don't understand what could be the problem cause there isn't no check engine light or anything of that sort showed up in dashboard,have this happened to anyone else that drives a 96 Buick Skylark??? can anyone help,give me some advice or something???? please!!
my 1996 buick skylark died going 55-60 on highway, wont start back up, codes read random misfire and bank 1 too lean. Would this cause the car not to start? what can I do to fix? would it be a timing issue?
My car overheats going even a short distance. I also have water on the floor on the drivers side which has gotten worse! Could this be from my water pump?Thermostat, water pump? Head gasket? I had the radiator flushed but didn't take care of the problem
if i turn it off and go shopping and come back to leave it will not start again i have to wait and start cranking it and wait a few minutes and cranking it again until it starts up
wires on brake look good same with wires on shifter,key is froozen moves but not out of locking position
NOTE: updated from prior post, original submission used "lock" up in the question, meant "light" up. All other dash lights work fine. On the shift indicator, neither the "pointer" nor the "letters" light up, i.e. when in drive, it does lock in the drive position, but neither the pointer nor the "D" light up. Same with all other positions.
