Typical AWD problem,won't engage

My sun roof wont seal tight, no electronics.

When accelerating from a stop my car is very sluggish loss of power.

My car has many issues. I'll try to put them in the order they began (more or less). It's possible it's caused by more than one thing. We've replaced the idle air control valve, the maf, spark plugs and wires, throttle position sensor, exhaust, air filter, alternator and battery within recent years/months. Doesn't matter what temp it is outside, although it seems worse when it rains or is windy.

1) Car lags/jerks during acceleration and sometimes while at a fairly consistent speed, usually between 60-70. Can happen at nearly any speed though. This has happened for 4+ years now; basically the whole time I've owned the car.

2) Code often says transmission component issue, yet if I manually shift everything is smooth and I have no problems shifting to park or reverse either. This has also displayed for several years.

3) Car has somewhat recently decided it doesn't like making multiple stops (within past 6 months primarily). I'll drive to a few stores and find that, after a couple stops, my car doesn't want to start. It turns over and sometimes catches, but then sputters out. When this happens, even when it manages to catch and hold, it will sometimes die or lurch/lag badly when I push on the gas to go forward. It has misfired during this time as well a few times, and the check engine light has blinked. This will also sometimes happen if I idle for longer periods of time. I will put it in drive and then when I push the gas, it will sputter and lurch or die out.

As you can see, we've replaced quite a few of the usual suspects. With 240,000 miles, I'm don't want to keep throwing in parts without more certainty. Thank you!

Have water leak that just happened without warning. Already replaced the ones on both sides of the engine. Its leaks quickly. But from under the car see only water. Cant tell where the source is. Its at the rear of block. From the top looking down cant see water or frezz plugs? does that mean remove trans?

The emergency brakes go down to the floor. How do I adjust them? I pushed on the emergency brakes 6 times and it didn't readjust them.

Now I'm going to replace the fuel pump is there something I need to do before I replace the fuel pump?

My car shuts off when I put it in drive it can be reeved up and has no problem driving in reverse but as soon as I put it in drive it shuts off. I have replaced both the air and fuel filters but nothing has changed.

The radio is non OEM and wierdly wired by former owner that is probably the cause?

All the lights do t come on but if you push parking brake in a little ways then all lights and mileage comes on

I went to start the car but when i did it didnt even kick over i tryed takeing the key out but it wouldnt comr out know my keys are stuck

Changed the altinator and battery

Replaced water pump and freeze plug.Started fine. Sit for 2 mts put gas in and would turnover but not start. Was like it was out of gas. Would sputter some and back fire some but will not start. Can hear fuel injector kick in. Don't know if it has a relay for sure or not. In the past before water pump went out it was missing some.

Starter replaced twice, solenoid once, ignition switch twice, wiring harness once and sill no change. Intermittent starting continues. Can go for days without acting up or act up every time ....

When going down the road if you put the pedal to the floor it picks up very slowly
