the car is a 2.8l v6 4 wheel motion

Took it to the dealership, they said to fix the muffler system. Did that, the car idles weird, and the check engine light will come on and the car looses power, its pushing a large amount of gas, then randomly will return to normal..

I went to do my first oil change ever and noticed my POS is leaking oil. Granted I've known my POS to have many small problems like, the emissions workshop flashes after accelerating to 30 - 40 mpm and then begins to jerk hard and also tends to never wanna shift from like 2nd to third or 3rd to 4th. Not exactly sure which ones. I just know that it always revs to 3000 rpms+ before switching to next gear etc. So now with oil leak I'm hella discouraged that I gotta deal with this crap now.

synthetic oil in was all good now no oil in engine

I was driving home and my check engine light came on with a warning on the dash read emission maintenance workshop took it to autozone and gave me 0455 code told me to check the gas cap I did but the light is still on I just want to know if is a major issue and how much is going to cost me

I need help on getting my car to start i have only had it for 3weeks, please and thank you.

the vibration is coming from the front end,it remains steady throughout all rpms in all gears. vehicle was flawless before her trip. it now feels like the front axle is going to tear off the car.i can feel the vibration in the steering wheel ,gas pedal and brake pedal. cv boot has some play in it when i grab it and shake it. not sure if it did before though. please help

Wire or wires are burned, haven't fixed it yet. It was smoking for awhile but wasn't sure what it was since if its not one thing its another.
