My tail light bulbs are out, is it difficult to replace them myself

If I push in the OD button, the transmission just slips & the car won't move ! I know there's a solenoid that operates this, but where IS it & how expensive is it ? Thanks !

It cranks but doesnt start. If it starts it won't idle

wanted to know if the rims r different from drums to disc. Had this done now there is a loud rubbing sound and the car pulls to the left and if I hit a bump/hole in the road the front end shimmies back and forth

The other controls on the "stalk" work - cruise control, etc. - and the wipers work on the "washer" setting, but the wipers do not work when using the rotary on the stalk. Do I need a new switch, "stalk" or what? I tried replacing the fuse but it did not help.

So my car runs ok for the most part but when I try to shift into over drive it sounds like it just goes back in to nuetral and just revs up the engine. Theres no sounds that it makes like clinks. If anyone has an idea or suggestions please feel free to acknowledge them.
