You need a new turn signal switch. since the brights toggle is in the same cluster it shorted and turned on the lights.

All lights work inside and out except all headlights will not

check the fusebox, mostly fuses are uite easily recognizable by small icons similar to the icons on the switches on your dashboard, find the one for lighting and verify if it is still proper. If not, replace it.

Left rear stop light & turn signal went out.

The wiring harness runs through the trunk between the quarter pannel and the inner liner. You might check these wires to make sure it hasn't been shorted or frayed.

I have a 1997 Dodge Neon. My check engine light has been on for a while and I have a small oil leak. Last night I was driving the car and the temperature gauge went all the way to high and the bell...

The 1995-1999 Neons are notorious for having faulty head gaskets. This sounds like what you're experiencing. There is coolant leaking internally somewhere, and burning in the engine.

By any chance, is the smoke coming from the back or side of the driver's side of the engine? This seems to be the trouble spot.

If you've been driving with a bad head gasket seal for a while, there's a chance you could have warped or even cracked the head. I would recommend taking it in because this is a pretty major repair... unless you feel like taking the engine apart yourself.
