I am replacing converter in front, codes P0770 and P0110 are coming up. Am not able to pass smog. This is the first time these situations have come up since owning this great car. Do I need to replace all of these parts to pass smog?

What seems to make the problem better or worse? Worse in 1st 2nd and 3rd
How long have you had this problem? 2 days
Fluid is good May have lost the overdrive solenoid that engages the o.d. because i have a light on and i haven't checked the code yet but i wonder where this solenoid is located or where can i find a picture of the location in the trans.
Broke the antenna off.
My car just stopped me when i slowed down to make a turn and since then its has refused to start. we have checked the fuel pump it is working okay, we have checked the coil it is also working.
After trying to start noticed smoke coming from large black box located driver side
Can it be bypassed?
My '96 Camry started fine yesterday and drove it to the bank. When I turned the car off, I noticed all of the indicator lights stayed on even when I took the key out of the ignition. I happened to press the brake and all the lights shut on and off as I pressed and released the brake. Very weird. I tried to start the car again and it was hard to turn over, but it did start. I turned the car off again and all the indicator lights shut off as normal and restarting was not a problem at all. I then went to another store and the same thing happened. I pressed the brake and the indicators turned off. When I finished shopping, I started the car with no issues, but when I when to engage into reverse, the safety lock on the shifter wouldn't let me go into gear. I pressed the brake, still nothing. I also noticed my brake lights would not turn on when the brake was pressed. They were working just 2 hours before. Needless to say, I was stuck in the parking lot which is a whole other story. What can be happening here, because I don't think it's the brakes themselves. I think something is creating havoc in the system, but I don't know what. Any ideas? Suggestions? Tom
replaced the I.A.C. valve and E.C.T. sensor also the cold start switch
Engine cracks and runs great for about five minutes. It then dies and will not restart for at least 4-6 hours. Fuel pump has been changed. Seems like once motor gets hot it dies?
I get up to 60 mph when it starts to bounce but I have new struts
Every morning
When I put the car in drive the front suspension makes a thump noise then pops in both front tires.Also as car is moving when it shifts into drive the noises are continuous until vehicle stops.
My check engine light has been on so many times this month. 3 weeks ago my car was reading code p0401. Did a tune up, and changed the vacuum mod. Drove it for 130 miles and it popped back on. Ran the code again and now it's a p0402. Replaced the EGR valve. Drove 150 miles came back on. What's the next step? I need to pass sMOG next week
