#1. is probably related to #2. Since the CEL is on, that tells you there are fault codes stored in memory. Have the car scanned for the codes at your local auto parts store for free and post them back here.

Do as Tom said. It's most likely a bad shift solenoid in the transmission. GMs from this period were notorious for that. HTH. - Jim
