How do I know whether or not the transmission or engine needs to be replaced?

(1994 Chrysler LeBaron)
in Levittown, PA on November 19, 2012
First of all this car leaks a huge amount of oil. Secondly, it has no heat. Twice I guess I did not let it warm up enough because when I put it into drive, it only would go in reverse. The front breaks were recently replaced as well as the air conditioner. I also had to put in a new starter and new battery. I spoke with a mechanic that told me they had done work on this car previously. They said they replaced the water pump and timing belt, changed the oil and some tires. Another problem I noticed was my check guage comes off and on if I step on my breaks too hard or making a sharp turn. Is this car redeemable? Is it safe to drive? How much money am I looking at to have these repairs?
