Question about Dodge Dakota
I don't know where your leak is happening but I suspect the transmission fluid attacks rubber and may be leaking from the heater because of softened hoses.
I think the first move I would make is to buy a Haynes or Chilton service manual and spend some time researching how the transmission and cooling systems are related. The books are available at auto parts stores (or on line of course) and cost between $17-$30 US.

Well, it could be either and oxygen sensor or a knock sensor.
Oxygen sensor monitors O2 levels in the exhaust.
The knock sensor listens for engine pinging and adjusts the timing as needed.
Prices vary on repair. I would recommend having the owner of the car either show you something from a repair shop that has the sensor name written, or take the car to a parts store that offers free code scanning and see what comes up.

Free registration, wealth of information.
For the record: if the sensors they're referring to are the input or output shaft speed sensors, they are very easy to find...just remove the air intake box (where the air filter is) and they're right there on top of the transmission. Input sensor is the one closer to the front of the vehicle, output towards the rear.

Too many variables here. Is there fluid in the master cylinder in the rear brake portion? Does a brake warning light come on when the brakes are applied? Is the pedal solid when braking or does it feel spongy? You could have a problem with the metering or proportioning valve. Since brakes are a safety item I suggest you check with one of the shops that offers free brake inspections.
