any help would be great..i think it's electrical problem, not trans, and that the IC circuit is either open or shorted...not sure how to test or repair.

while driving or slowing down toward a stop, my 1992 SL2 will downshift hard making the saTurn buck/jerk, the service engine (SES) light will turn on and "shift to d2 light" will flash on and turn off, or it will stay on...if it stays on the saTurn then will drive sluggish and slow and barely accelerate. used to happen once a week now it happens every 20 minutes or so...sometimes the downshift feels like you another car just ran into you. damn..quite the eye opener in the morning .. after driving sluggish, if you turn off the 'Turn and turn it back on again, it won't drive sluggish until the next erratic shift.. btw, it has about 105k miles and automatic transmission
I can't find the starter realy.
The car overheats and has the smell of a strong odor,Gas fume type.
The service engine light comes on frequently and thens goes off. When the car is started in the morning it runs rough and stumples during warm up.When the A/C is on the problem is the worst with lack of power, overheating and foul smell.
the water pump is leaking

We have an issue that just happen, while backing up, we felt a snap and when we stepped on the brakes they went to the floor board. The emergency brake handle now is very loose and the brake light will not go out. I need help in figuring out what this problem is, this is my only way to get to work, so I need to get this car fixed at once.
