my car is about to hit 150k miles. does my transmission oil/fluid/seals need any service? someone said that jetta 07 never need to get service for that true?

i just hit 142k and i got new tires, brakes, oil change and filters. is there anything else do to on the car?
My engine lite is on an WHEN i went to have it checked out it said engine code P2231
The rattling is extremely loud which can be heard in and out of the car and is noticeable. This is so frustrating because my mechanic cannot even locate the problem. It can be not just limited to accelerating. It can be heard when I am idle, or slowing down. My car has just been serviced and no apparent issue was detected or found. There could be days without this rattling and then it starts up again. I cannot find the link to when this happens. There are no leaks detected.
Rear brake was seizing. Changed caliper, bled the line. E-brake has slack when off. Problem still occurring.
When I start the car is runs smooth. After five minutes of driving it starts to idle roughly. The gauge goes up and down as it idles..The check engine light is on.
car wobbles a little when driving.
Scanner indicates both fault codes may be related to catalytic converter, O2 sensor(s), or exhaust leak.
Kerosene was pumped into the car. I was told some European vehicles have an anti syphon system. Does a Volkswagen Jetta 2007 have this system to prevent it from being syphoned?
shifting perking
Traction light won’t go off and rear brake lights are staying on. No other lights on on the dash
Car stalls after driving about 30-40 min in 90 degrees +. Problem occurs faster the hotter it is. Stop car, restart it and fires back up perfectly. Drive about 20-60 seconds car stalls again. Often times I can spam the gas petal and it will kick the car back on. Car runs perfectly and idles perfectly. No check engine light or codes. In the last 3 months I've replaced spark plugs, fuel filter/pump, Maf sensor, coil, cleaned throttle body, taken out and checked and inspected alternator at specialist, Air filter, injectors cleaned.

Gears shift without a problem until engine temperature gets to 90. Then gear shifts become unpredictable and violent.
