Not working all the time

why is this happening? Can someone help me. people are saying it is because the oil pump is damaged

I was driving down the road when I lost power from engine. when I pulled over I had smoke under hood, upon inspecting, I noticed I had oil all over the cross member under the engine. the engine would run rough, but when you pushed the gas pedal it would lose power and start trying to stall out. now engine won't start, any ideas where or what I should check first. I really need it running and a full fledged mechanic is well outside of my budget. can do the work myself, just need pointed in the right direction. thanks in advance p.s. this is the 2.7 XL7 not the 2.5 model Vitaras.

Recently my xl7 rolled to a stop, and won't move, the driveshaft is turning but the rear end differencial isnt rurning the wheels

A little while ago my suzuki started making a rhythmic grinding from my driver's side rear tire. Rhythmic in the sense that when Im speeding up the rhythm picks up. So, we figured it was the wheel bearing needing to be replaced. Well- we're still in the process of fixing it, however now my rear tire is leaking break fluid- as in, I do not have any tension on the breaks because its empty. Im a single mother. I know how to change break pads, rotors, oil filters, etc etc. but Im unfamiliar with rear wheel drums and wouldn't mind learning about them- not only because its interesting, but also because Im pinching pennies at this point. Do I need new calipers? is this a hard process? Please point me in the right direction.

Where are the eletrical sensors for the transmission located?

I bought my grand vitara from a used dealership and it only came with the keyless remote. This can be bothersome to keep up with. I would like to have a physical key as a back up at least. anyone know where and how much it would cost>
