Red LED security system light stays on while i crank it but wont start but will run off ether and the fuel pump is workin

I am fairly certain my transmission is slipping... spent a week at auto shop, who said 'nothing is wrong with the transmission'. Had a shredded belt replaced & an interior air filter. Mechanics said that I have a wheel-bearing on back left that is going to need to be replaced and that was all... I had asked for a computer diagnostics to be run, I would think something related to the transmission might would show up indicating a problem(?) - I do not know if they actually performed the test or not.

But course, the jerking motion has gotten worse to the point that I was unsure if the care was about to die or not. Also, the engine revs up to 3 when accelerating from 0 up to ~ 30mph. Feels like changing gears is an issue (like they are getting stuck?). I do not know... I know very little about cars but I DO know that whatever this is, has something with the transmission.

The engine light just came on, all interior/dashboard lighting disappeared, then the check engine light appeared, followed by all of the other (on dash). I was 2-3 miles from home. Parked it only to see it is leaking some kind of fluid now, toward the front, right side, can't figure out what it is (it's not red, pink, brown or black and it's not water). Anyone that read this, feel free to post any advice - Thanks in advance.

It smells like it's not mixing the right amount of air & gas

Ibelieve seal has opened need replacement

Car gets started every time but it has very loud sound. The blue smoke is also coming from one of the two exhausts ( silencers)

I does not happen all the time but occasionally.

Usually the steering is easy to turn but it started to give a lot of resistance recently.

Sometimes the check engine comes on but not all the time.

I have a nissan maxima that cranks but wont start. i have checked the battery, fuel pump, iginition system everything that relates to the problem.... but one thing is that the dash and the A/C are turned on instantly when i put my key on ON i cannot control my A/C it stays working also my dash all lights are on. could this be more of a electricity problem not mechanical?

I pushed the lock button located next to the gear shifter and it shifted I immediately turned the car around to go home which is less than a quarter-mile away did not make it even 200 yards car started cutting out the gauges on the dash all stopped working and the car died again got another job and went the rest the way home turn the car off try to crank it again nothing the battery was dead again after jumping off again and noticed that the radiator fan was trying to come on but would not and battery died again has anyone had the same problem with a 2001 Nissan Maxima please help I need it to take my 69 year old Uncle who is very ill to the hospital tomorrow morning this has never happened before I've had the car for 2 months and it has been perfect almost like a new car except for one problem the brake lights stay on all the time even when you turn the ignition off so we pull the fuse out each time park the car then we're ready to leave with put the fuse back in because the car will not shift without the Fuse

My air compressor stopped working for the second time. Tested to see if it was getting power prior to buying a new compressor and it was. After installing the new compressor I found out that there wasn't any power going to the compressor.

what could be the cause of this besides a fuel cap that's not on tight enough?

It starts perfectly cold or warm but when I reach two-and-a-half RPM it starts to bog out or act like it's getting choked up... Also when in park or neutral as I said the RPMs fluctuate up and down I use 89 octane fuel and I also had just put in seafoam maybe I'm being impatient but it doesn't seem as if the seafoam work I am broke I have no money no code reader and my service engine soon light stays on does not Flash. ..... Any ideas or thoughts would be much appreciated
