How/What is best to remedy/correct this situation?

I have a 1990 ford festival thats not getting fire I've changed the coil and it still has no fire so what do i do

Will not shift from low gear to high gear. ie will shift from 1st to second but not from 2nd to 3rd or 3rd to fourth. this is a manual transmission truck

the engine miss's at idle some times and sometimes will shut off when stopped and in gear. also it will miss at speed, like shut off for a second and then back on. its a violent miss at speeds

The truck has bucket seats, I need to replace the fold down center console. Cannot locate any suppliers online that offer this original console, would like some options besides ford dealership.

low or no heat,coolant level is fine,can the heater core be flushed&is it a problem to replace&

so my truck was on a 5 hour drive and towards the end of it the heat stopped coming out of the vent. I stopped to check it out- couldnt see much of a difference under the hood so kept going then the heat gauge went up and check engine light so I stopped and waited, got back on the road and almost immediately temp gauge went right back up. stopped, waited and tried to start and truck made bad sounds with some white smoke from back left side. ... ended up getting it towed then took off spark plugs found 2 were broken, there's a lot of wetness and grime underneath. Now, truck will start but ther'es still smoke coming out from back under the hood.

I just changed the oil/filter and oil pressure switch in my 1990 ford ranger. I notice it had started leaking oil after driven. The oil looks like it's coming from the left(driver) side. Could the oil pan gasket be bad?
