Sounds like your car doesn't like bumps!
The abs control modules on these fail regularly due to breaks in the circuit board solder joints. It could be that hitting the bump make the fault occur. There are places that will repair them, however you will need to remove it, or have it removed and send it to them to fix it, or you can replace it.
Either way, you'll need to get the problem diagnosed first., starting by reading out the faults in all the systems. The transmission, cruise control and speedometer all rely on a vehicle speed sensor signal from the abs module, so that is why so many systems are affected.

It should be by the drivers door foot-well.
If its not that, could be the cam sensor.
Good Luck !

Seems like you might have a couple of problems. First the gas gauge, check your fuses to see if they are still good. Then check the wiring as you may have a short or a bad ground. Lastly if everything checks out then you may have faulty sensor in the gas pump housing in the gas tank, and or faulty temperature sending unit located on the motor. As for your your overheating issue you may have a head gasket leak which these little motors are prone to having, or just a general coolant leak. I deduced this because you're constantly having to refill with water. You have a leak somewher, but to narrow it down to your head gasket check your oil to see if it's got coolant in it. It will look like chocolate milk and may even smell like coolant. Also check your tailpipe with the car running in park and up to operating temp, if you see white smoke coming out the tailpipe that white smoke isn't smoke but water vapor, caused by water entering the combustion chamber from the leaking head gasket and exiting the exhaust. Also you may have a faulty fan switch on your radiator. This would cause your engine to heat up drastically in bumper to bumper traffic because when you're driving cool air is rushing through your radiator, and when you slow down and stop so does the air flow, and if your fan doesn't kick in your radiator isn't able to do it's job and cool the coolant. Hope this helps.

Hello Guest and thank you for asking your question, on Fixya.
It is most likely just the engine that is running just a bit warmer than usual causing the transmission to run hot.. The best way to fix that situation is to install a transmission cooler.
