Both brake light and battery light are on 1996 Nissan Maxima b

Asked by Jun 20, 2018 at 11:39 AM about the 1997 Nissan Maxima

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So I bought this car recently from a family friend for
1,500 . He informed that he put a new transmission
in. Everything was going okay until I notice my car
would start to smoke lightly from under the hood, it
usually does it if I go over 50 mph for a longer
period of time . Now out of nowhere my brake light
and battery light comes on , my air has gone hot,
and idk how to explain it but my gear shift and my
parking brake handles seem to be loose if that
makes sense . It’s like my handle can easily be
knocked off of what gears it’s supossed to be set
on . Like it doesn’t look in correctly when I shift
gears . So I guess my question would be did I make
a terrible mistake buying this car ? Is this an issue
can be fixed for a reasonable price or should I just
cut my loses and just sell it ?
