Sounds like you have multiple problems, a transmission issue and an engine issue. What color is the smoke? Blue/Grey or white? There is no easy fix in your future, sounds like you need a mechanic to diagnose your issues and then decide if you want to fix up/dump lots of money into the 15 year old minivan or not.
